First Look: SB Tactical TF1913 Side-Folding Pistol Brace

posted on May 26, 2020

In 2014, SB Tactical created the first stabilizing brace for larger pistols. The original SB Pistol Stabilizing Brace was revolutionary, creating a new market for large frame pistols. Since then, the company has updated its braces with a variety of different styles, making them smaller, lighter and more secure.

SB Tactical is now continuing its support for the large frame pistol market with the release of the new TF1913 Pistol Stabilizing Brace. The TF1913 brace is designed in conjunction with Palmetto State Armory, and it features a low-profile, left side-folding, triangle design that is compatible with all platforms using an M1913 Picatinny rail on the back of the receiver, such as the SIG MPX, SIG MCX, SIG Rattler, Ruger Charger, Rock River LAR-PDS and other firearms.

The TF1913 ships as a complete assembly that is ready-to-install on your pistol. It has a rigid polymer substrate with a flexible arm cuff and an advanced billet steel-hinge that locks firmly in place in both the folded and extended positions. The pull-through design of the brace provides quick deployment and solid lock-up when extended, allowing you to increase your accuracy and extend your reach to longer distances with a large frame pistol.

TF1913 Features:

  • Complete assembly, ready-to-install
  • Advanced steel hinge design locks in both folded and extended positions
  • Pull-through design offering quick deployment
  • Rigid polymer substrate with flexible arm cuff
  • Includes adjustable nylon strap
  • Weight: 10.9 ounces
  • Strap Width: 1 inch
  • Length: 9.5 inches
  • Width: 1 inch
  • Color: Black


Like all SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces, the TF1913 is designed by U.S. veterans and proudly manufactured in the U.S.A. MSRP for the TF1913 brace is is $199.99. More information on this brace and the other products in SB Tactical’s line is available at

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
