    So I bought an SBA4 and I don't like it as well as the SBA3. Midway says they won't take it back or exchange it (check the fine print in the exchange policy).

    Anyone have an SBA3 they want to trade? Mine is unused.

    Straight trade, for a used brace in good condition or better.

    Just the brace, not the tube.

    Just put an SB on my Rattler a few minutes ago. Close to an AR pattern except no buffer tube. Quality seems as good as the other SB braces I have seen.

    Thought I'd reopen this for a brief PSA.

    Had occasion yesterday to employ my KAK 2.0-equipped AR pistol. Maybe adrenaline, who knows, but I found myself holding the pistol in one hand and the brace in the other. Went to a cheek weld with the buffer only and got the shot off with that slight delay.

    FYI.

    I had a little chuckle picturing that.

    I use a Phase 5 buffer tube versus a brace.

    Ideal for 3 point-of-contact work, and can also work from a 4th. (I use a Law Tactical folder with them, so that adds about 1.5" to my length of pull)

    Having phase 5 buffer tube, SBPDW, SBA3; I have the same experiences as all those in this thread about these items. If I had to choose 1, it would be SBA3 due to maybe slight edge/ease of adjustability and lighter weight vs SBPDW. If you add the law tac folder (8.5 oz) to SBA3 (6.75 oz), sure the weight increases closer to SBPDW (18.1 oz) but still lighter, but almost negligible with the folding benefit. I don't recall or every seen if the SbPDW is usable with the law tac folder based on its design. I don't have any experience with the other mentioned braces (Hook 1 or 2, any blades whether magpul or kak) Just some thoughts...

    You can also add 0.75" to the tube by going with an A5 or "intermediate" receiver extension. There are other advantages to the A5 tube, but I won't go into all of that in this thread.

    Tailhooks on sig MCX & Scorpion. They are compact when folded and they actually work as a brace when opened up, which is handy when operating one handed.
