SIG Sauer Introduces SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace for Buffer-Tube Equipped Pistols

posted on April 30, 2015

SIG Sauer introduced the SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace, a shooter's aid that is designed to improve the single-handed shooting performance of buffer tube equipped pistols. This veteran-designed and U.S.-manufactured accessory enhances accuracy and reduces felt recoil when using an AR-style pistol.

The concept for the Pistol Stabilizing Brace was born from a trip to the range with a disabled veteran, who found it challenging to use an AR pistol one-handed. As the designer, an Army veteran himself, tested various designs, he found that the SB15 enhanced the accuracy and control for all shooters, regardless of physical ability.

"The SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace is an ideal choice for shooters and hunters of all ages and abilities," said Jeff Creamer, SIG Sauer director of product management. "This is a great product that works well, makes the gun look better, and supports a terrific cause."

Made from high-quality, elasto-polymer, the SB15 is manufactured to close tolerances and fits all pistols equipped with an AR-style buffer tube 1-1.2 inches in diameter. The Pistol Stabilizing Brace uses the operator's forearm to provide stable support, thereby minimizing accuracy-robbing spin and shift. A flexible cuff with two adjustable nylon straps allows the SB15 to be custom fit to any user.

The SB15 has been approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) Technical Branch as a handgun accessory that requires no NFA registration and will not convert an AR pistol into a short-barrel rifle.

Offered exclusively through the SIGTac line of firearm accessories, a portion of the proceeds from each SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace sold will go to the support the veterans of Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA).

SIG Sauer will begin shipping its P516 and P556 pistols with the SB15 already installed in states where permitted.  Soon to follow will be pistol versions of the SIGM400 and the SIG716.  The SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace can be purchased separately and carries an MSRP of $139. The SB15 comes with the Pistol Stabilizing Brace, two straps and a letter of approval from the BATFE.
