AR15.com member / veteran AlexBosco knocks it out of the park with this one:
About the product:
I have been developing with the Chief Prosthetis at local Veterans Hospital a Stabilizing Brace (SB15) for the ar15 pistol, and a few other pistols that are similar in format, that I think all of us here will appreciate. I haven’t posted anything sooner because I’ve been waiting for the “Patent Pending Approval” from my patent lawyer and the phone call from the ATF giving me the verbal ok. The ATF has finally given me the verbal ok over the phone and I am expecting the Approval letter shortly, which I will post once received. I am a veteran and after 12 years of service and various deployments I have some mobility issues with my shooting hand and arm and the intent of the SB15 is to assist those with limited strength or mobility while shooting from the one-handed pistol precision stance or one handed supported stance.
That’s awesome. I really hope he doesn’t charge more than $120 for it. I imagine the market is a lot bigger than he originally might anticipate. A lot of people with perfectly fine mobility are going to want this thing just to make their AR pistol suck less (those of you that don’t have SBRs know what I mean). If he tries to charge $150 for instance, people might as well just add another $50 and go the SBR route. I’ve never worked with foam rubber, but I’m assuming it’s not any more expensive than the usual polymers. If he keeps to the design pictured, the mold wouldn’t be that complicated either so I don’t anticipate the start-up costs being out of hand.
Alex says the final product will be available in black, tan, and olive drab.
