The Most Compact Pistol Brace Available
There are lots of pistol-stabilizing braces on the market, but there's only one that holds the distinction of being the most compact brace you'll find: the Gear Head Works Tailhook MOD 1. If you're building an AR-style pistol for compactness, as well as easy storage and transport, this stabilizing brace is a must-have addition to your kit.
Each Gear Head Works Tailhook MOD 1 brace is machined from solid billet aluminum and clamps onto standard pistol-buffer tubes for ARs or adapter spuds for a range of other compact options on the market. As long as the clamping surface measures 1.17-1.2 inches in diameter, the Tailhook MOD 1 will work.
The brace adds stability, thanks to a secured shelf that lowers with the push of a button. When shooting, pull the shelf down and place your forearm on the top of the shelf to rest the weight of your pistol. This allows users to focus on trigger control rather than maintaining the heavy weight of the gun.
Other added benefits of the Gear Head Works Tailhook MOD 1 is the light weight of the system, adding only 4.5 ounces to the overall weight of your gun. A limited-rotation QD socket allows for sling attachments, and the entire unit can be set up for either left- or right-handed shooters. A hard-anodized finish protects the brace from wear and corrosion.
