First Look: Magpul BSL HK94/MP5 Arm Brace HK94/MP5

posted on January 15, 2021
Magpul recently introduced the MP BSL Arm Brace for HK94/MP5-pattern pistols, which is designed to be a durable, lightweight, collapsible brace intended for single-hand use. The new brace is constructed with Magpul's proprietary polymer and incorporates design and engineering elements that are said to provide brace functionality and robust use in any condition. Best of all, the BSL Arm Brace is meant to match the aesthetic appeal of the MP5-pattern platform. 

The brace also features a tool-less adjustment system for easy deployment and collapsing of the brace, and it is said to be extremely durable with enhanced ergonomics. It features an integrated QD sling attachment, combined with ample surface area for lateral forearm contact and is said to increase stability when firing. Likewise, the BSL features an M-Lok slot for added sling mounting options.
