Any experience with this brace? Going to put a BCM 11.5 ELW upper on it.

I've got two of them. Both on pistol marked Aero lowers. I really like them, they have held up for me so far.

If you don't need the adjust-ability feature, the standard version is a better deal. none of the spongy sloppy feel of the Sig brace, and a very solid shoulder weld. A good bit less expensive to boot.

I have the SBPDW on both of my AR pistols and it is very nice, but it’s also fairly heavy due the the steel rods and the big aluminum latch block. Also, when in the fully collapsed position, the rods block the rear takedown pin. Not a real problem, just for information.

My guess is we’ll get a response in 6-9 months.

The SBA3 is just as good of a brace and costs about $75. That's what I use.

Where do you find them for $75? They are $169 on the sb-tactical website.

I presume he meant $75 LESS.

If not I too would like to know where it can be had for $75.

I have a PDW waiting for me to put this 9mm together.
Looking at the SB3 for my 10mm I am still collecting parts for.

The PDW brace is everything I want, except short.
I will probably go with something cheaper and the LAW folder for the next one that I actually want to carry around.

I have one That I bought for my Sig 516 pistol. After I installed it I realized it would not collapse because the 516 has QD sling mounts in the rear of the receiver that block the rods from moving forward. After being mad, and then laughing at myself (for not reading the fine print on the SB website that says clearly it wont work on the 516)I took it off and installed it on my DD Mk18 pistol lower. Everything works as it should, and feels good. Solid. Shoulders similar enough to a regular collapsing stock. No issues or quirks there. I only have one complaint.... just about every time I shoulder it, my beard gets hung in it somewhere/somehow. I may not pull any out, or a couple hairs, but regardless, I think its annoying. May not happen to everyone. For that reason alone, I'll prolly wind up selling it. Other than that, It's as I expected, maybe a little better. I think I'll replace it with new Sb adjustable brace.

It came in. I like how sturdy it is but it weighs a lot.

I think I've seen them at PSA for as low as $250 but I passed every time. Now I wish I had gotten one because I don't recall it being that low for quite a while.

This AR platform gets so addicting. Big Grin

The SBPDW was $216 at Midway in early May when I bought my two.
