    Atlantic Firearms is selling a "Sig Pistol" with what appears blatantly to be a stock, albeit a short one.

    http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/com...pistol-stabilizing-brace-detail.html?Itemid=0

    How is this possible? They claim that it fits all pistols with a 1" diameter buffer tube, but I wasn't even aware that Sig rifles used a buffer tube. It's a neat work around if it's legit, but it's hard for me to imagine that the ATF won't clamp down on this. Thoughts?

    Appears to be the length of the buffer tube and adds weight for better balance. You have to have a pretty strange build to use that as a shoulder stock.

    Keep in mind, according to the ATF, a shoestring can be a machine gun, but a bump fire stock isn't.

    Ah yeah I can see that in the pics now that I know to look for it. Pretty inventive. I didn't know sigs used a buffertube system for bolt return.

    They don't. But just like AK's, you can buy adapters so you can fit your favorite AR stocks.

    That's fascinating - wonder how well it works?

    I made something like that out of the (useless) collapsible stock that came with my MAC-11. Really helped with muzzle climb in rock-n-roll mode...

    I think you could scrunch up to the "brace" and use it properly.

    It was submitted to ATF for approval and passed, since it's not designed to be fired from the shoulder. The material is a semi flexible foam, similar to that used in neck braces and such.... not really firm enough to work as a stock when braced against the shoulder.

    Not a product I would find useful at all, but ATF felt it passed the standards.

    Article about the brace here.
    http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2013/06/rabbi/gear-review-sig-sb15-pistol-stabilizing-brace/

    I think it's a cute workaround inherently stupid SBR laws, much like Sig's similarly droolworthy MPX-C with integrated suppressor (- shroud) that can be converted into an integral suppressor for about $200+$200 tax stamp...
