Uncle Sam seems to be giving us a little slack with regard to shouldering a brace. This may be the most common sense filled act to date. I have no recitations of author or articles but I suspect this highly intelligent group can verify the info before anyone actually shoulders one.

Somewhat obscure and confusing wording in the ATF letter but it seems like if you buy a stabilizing brace and don't reconfigure it at all to perform as a shoulder stock and simply leave it in its intended design and function as a stabilizing brace, it is okay to sometimes shoot it from the shoulder?

Meaning, all of these cool SB Tactical "braces" are legal to sometimes shoulder-brace with Short Barrel Rifles?

I guess there's a reason they are charging ridiculous amounts of money for them. The Scorpion Evo brace is $250 bucks!

Anyone have the full letter? I thought I downloaded it from FB link, but it didn't save.
The letter seems very contradictory. It starts out saying simply installing the Sig brace doesn't constitute "making" an SBR, then it says how they were incorrect in their use of "redesign", then in the last paragraph, it looks like they are considering installing the brace as "making" a SBR. The letter said it wanted to clear up any confusion, but looks more confusing to me!

I'm guessing the AR pistol world is about to explode.
