Pistol Brace/Stock Information and Warning
Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Background: The BATF has created FINAL RULE 2021R08F
A brace on a firearm/pistol is now considered the same as a stock and is a NFA item.
Possession of an NFA item without being registered as such will constitute a felony and will get you thrown in jail.
To give perspective, adding a brace or stock to a firearm (pistol) now constitutes a NFA item same as a full auto machine gun and without filing a Form 1 with the ATF you will go to jail unless it is registered as a NFA item with the BATF.
The items for sale on this site may allow for a firearm to become an NFA item if put together. You must register your pistol with BATF if putting on a stock or brace (which is now a stock).
