The ATF has changed their point of view on the Sig Braces. If you put it on your "pistol" to use it as a buttstock, you'll have to register it as an NFA item.

I can't say I'm surprised in the least.

no problemo :cool: , the PMPDW is just as a**-kicking fired with the sling-push-pull method the HK and Singaporean SOF guys taught me

So I did a little reflecting on the problem.

FF you've shot bullseye before, therefore you can make the argument that you use the pistol to practice your one handed shooting. The additional weight can only help you hold more steady when you're actually firing your M9. :D

So you can still have the brace as long as you do not misuse it. Seems like an unenforceable law to me.

Here is the whole story. What it boils down to is some idiot sent a letter to ATF and they did NOT change their position on the deal, just an idiot asking the wrong question got it answered.

Actually it's not a law at all, but the opinion of the ATF Technical Branch.

ETA: first post! oops

But it is still verboten to shoulder it. It is perfectly legal to use it as designed, just don't shoulder it around anyone that has run afoul of the BATFE.
