    Default Is this a good idea?? Suarez tactical arm brace kit on a glock.

    I find this to be very interesting, but Im having serious reservations. This kit is advertised as 'non NFA', hence not needing a tax stamp, since they say it doesnt constitute an SBR build. We all know that the ATF can change their minds at any time and even if it happens to stay legal, the chances of local law enforcement being up to date on the ATFs rules is much less probable.

    Id really like to get some opinions from you guys. Id love to put this on my glock, but do not want any problems down the road. I certainly dont have the 200 for the tax stamp plus another hundred for the a stock set up. I can spend around a hundred dollars for this, but if it could put me in violation of federal law, Im not doing it.

    Interesting.
    Ugly as sin, but interesting.

    Doesn't seem to violate the law. Not much more to say.
    You already know that it could be made illegal at any point in the future.

    It's about as inexpensive as you're gonna get for that type of setup.
    I was looking at those "Mini Roni" kits with the arm brace online a while ago, but those are much more money.
    You get what you pay for though.

    I may have to try this on my Glock.

    Braces are ATF approved including the KAK. If itís good on an AR pistol then why not on a Glock?

    After all a pistol is a pistol.

    In my opinion you need a vertical foregrip to really use that. I also think a foregrip on a Glock would put your hand way too close to the muzzle so you will also need a can. Of course you need a stamp for the can and then have to register it as an sbr and get a second stamp to install a foregrip. Theoretically you can use a vertical foregrip but Iím not sure of any that would fit.

    What is the point of putting a stock on a gun with a 4 inch barrel?
    By definition that handgun has a limited range of accuracy and effectiveness.
    Handguns are useful for easy mobility, concealability, and close quarters engagement, and the trade off is lost accuracy, lost effectiveness, and a low velocity round.
    That gadget gives you the disadvantages of a rifle or submachine gun with none of the advantages of accuracy, effectiveness, or high velocity.
    Seems completely pointless.

    "stocks" on handguns aid in shooting, there is a reason they had popularity when semi-auto pistols were first invented.

    The main reason for something like this is because .gov tells us stocks on a pistol are evil.

    To summarize Bernclys excellent post, no it is not a good idea.
