ATF Technical Letter About AR Buffer Tubes On Non-AR Pistols

Finally the ATF responded, and […]

I purchased my first AK-pattern rifle in 1998. I built my first AR15 in 2013.

SIG SBX First Impressions Review

| October 17, 2014 | 15 Comments

The phrase “game changer” gets used a lot in the firearms industry. Usually the sentiment is unwarranted, and in short order everyone forgets about company XYZ’s latest interpretation of a 1911, AR15 or AK47. And then every once in awhile a product comes out like SIG Sauer’s SB15 brace, and things really do change. I’ve […]

I ordered my SIG Sauer SBX arm brace on August 7th, 2014. I was directed to call the sales number by SIG’s Facebook page administrators — they stated the SBX was ready for order, but the Web site said “out of stock.” To my knowledge, the Web site has never taken orders but if I’m […]
