It appears the BATF has reversed it’s opinion on shouldering a AR pistol brace.

SB Tactical has released a statement in it’s blog, that can be found by following this link, announcing The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives issued a reversal letter containing clarification of the BATF’s opinion on the use of AR pistol braces.  The letter contains, as copied from SB Tactical’s site ““an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not reconfigured for use as a shoulder stock – even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder. To the extent that the January 2015 Open Letter implied or has been construed to hold that incidental, sporadic, or situational “use” of an arm-brace (in its original approved configuration) equipped firearm from a firing position at or near the shoulder was sufficient to constitute “redesign,” such interpretations are incorrect and not consistent with ATF’s interpretation of the statute or the manner in which it has historically been enforced.”

Alex Bosco, founder and CEO of SB Tactical. “We are strongly encouraged by the ATF’s reversal of opinion and commend their willingness to continually review policy, including their own opinions, to ensure public safety and the fulfillment of their mission.”

Please, don’t everyone and every manufacture call the BATF tomorrow and continue to ask for clarification. Remember what happened last time.
