A Statement Regarding the SIG SAUER Pistol Stabilizing Brace

SIG SAUER, Inc., has issued the following statement about the recent opinion by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in regard to the SB15 and SBX pistol stabilizing braces.

“As reaffirmed in an Open Letter by ATF’s Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division dated January 16, 2015, the Pistol Stabilizing Brace (SB15 and SBX) is legal to own, legal to purchase, and legal to install on a pistol. SIG SAUER® believes that the PSB improves the single-handed shooting performance of buffer tube equipped pistols, and offers the product both as an accessory and pre-installed on a number of pistols.

“The Open Letter goes further to rescind a previous private letter regarding the ‘intent’ of the user of the pistol stabilizing brace. In the letter of January 16, 2015, ATF opines that a person’s actual use of the product as a shoulder stock can change the legal classification of the product. However, the Open Letter explicitly states: “ATF hereby confirms that if used as designed—to assist shooters in stabilizing a handgun while shooting with a single hand—the device is not considered a shoulder stock and therefore may be attached to a handgun without making a NFA firearm.”

“We question ATF’s reversal in position that the classification of the brace may be altered by its use. We are reviewing the legal precedents and justification for this position, and will address our concerns with ATF in the near future.

“We will vigorously defend the classification of all of our products and our consumers’ right to use them in accordance with the law. If we find that the open letter opinion is outside the scope of the law, we will seek further review.”

In A Discussion On Bullet Weight For The .45 ACP

…And Saint Browning raised the .45 ACP up on high, saying, “O LORD, bless this Thy handgun’s cartidge that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy.” And the LORD did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu…

[why don’t we skip a bit, brother]…

And the LORD spake, saying, “Shalt thou use bullets of 230 grains, no less. 230 grains shall be the number thou shalt carry, and the number of grains of the carrying shall be 230. 185 shalt thou not carry, neither a round count thou 200, excepting that thou are pausing when couting 230. 140 is right out. Once the grains being 230, being the right number, be obtained, then loadest thou thy Holy Handgun of 1911, so that thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.”

SureFire Product Releases Announced At SHOT Show

2211-X

SUREFIRE 2211 X
Dual-Output 123A-Powered LED Wristlight
The 2211X is the newest member of SureFire’s innovative 2211® family. This affordable WristLight is powered by a single disposable 123A lithium battery and features a lightweight but rugged high impact- polymer body that secures to your wrist with an adjustable rugged nylon strap, so it’s always on you and ready for action. Its solid-state, dual-output LED is teamed with a precision, faceted reflector that focuses the light into our MaxVision Beam™ that’s wide, evenly dispersed, and has no discernible drop-off in output.
The 2211X is ingeniously designed so that this perfect beam projects directly onto an aggressor when worn on the support hand (non-shooting) wrist when holding a pistol in a standard two-handed grip. Like all 2211 WristLights, the 2211X features one-touch max-output switching—just press the pushbutton switch to unleash every lumen, or press and hold to cycle to the long runtime/ 15-lumen setting for a wide array of non-tactical close- to mid-range tasks. The 2211X costs less than its predecessors but is still tough enough for the streets.

M600 AA

SureFire M600 AA Scout Light®
The M600 AA is a versatile new member of SureFire’s best-in class Scout Light family. It features a recoil-proof, solid-state LED that produces 200 lumens of blinding white light focused by a patented TIR lens into a useful beam with plenty of reach and ample surround light for maintaining good situational awareness. It’s ideal for close- to longer-range applications. Adding to the M600 AA’s versatility is the fact that it can be powered by either AA lithium batteries—for maximum performance—or by AA alkalines, both of which are readily available in remote parts of the world. This low-profile light securely mounts to MIL-STD-1913 rails via an integral thumbscrew clamp and, thanks to its lightweight aerospace aluminum construction, it won’t bog down your weapon or sacrifice its maneuverability. The combat-ready M600 AA Scout Light is activated by either clicking its included pushbutton tailcap switch or by pressing its optional pressure-pad tape switch.

P2X Fury Intellibeam Vertical Final

SureFire P2X FURY® with Intellibeam™ Technology
This auto-adjusting version of our popular P2X Fury takes full advantage of the variable-output capability of one of SureFire’s brightest and most popular flashlights. Using our proprietary IntelliBeam™ Technology—an intelligent sensor and microprocessor-based system—to continuously evaluate and seamlessly adjust light output when needed, based on the scope and other characteristics of your surroundings, this P2X automatically delivers just the right light output. This cutting-edge technology also helps preserve dark-adapted vision by actually evaluating the environment before turning on, so it never activates on high in close quarters. If you’re in an open field and select IntelliBeam, you’ll get all 600 lumens, but if you’re prepping gear or loading a vehicle, it will dial the output down based on the feedback it receives. Just press or click the pushbutton tailcap switch to engage this automatically adjusting technology; to override it, return to off and press or click on again within two seconds to activate maximum
output—it automatically defaults to IntelliBeam mode when it’s off for more than two seconds. Everything else about this flashlight is pure Fury—a solid-state LED; a precision reflector that shapes a flawless, versatile beam; and a rugged, O-ring-sealed aluminum body with a tough Mil-Spec finish.

RM45

SureFire RM45 and RM45L Scout light Off-Set Mounts
The SureFire RM45 and RM45L off-set mounts are designed to offer a low-profile, lightweight, reliable solution for mounting your SureFire Scout Light models to Mil-Std Picatinny rails. All SureFire M300 and M600 models are compatible with the RM45 mount, while M620 models pair with the RM45L mount. Both are engineered to place the Scout Light in the 45 degree off-set positions between the rails. An anti-rotating rail cleat and captured adjustment screw permit secure attachment and ensure that no components will be lost during installation or removal. Precision machined from 7075 T6 aluminum and finished with Mil-Spec Type III hard anodizing, the RM45 and RM45L will stand up to the harshest conditions.

Titan 3-4 View Final

SureFire TITAN-A
ULTRA-COMPACT DUAL-OUTPUT LED KEYCHAIN LIGHT
The ultra-compact, dual-output Titan is a professional-grade keychain light—the first of its kind—that’s painstakingly designed to always be with you. Built to SureFire’s highest standards, this rugged light goes wherever you go and is ready to take on most any emergency, large or small. Its virtually indestructible LED is surrounded by a proprietary faceted reflector to create SureFire’s flawless MaxVision Beam™—a wide beam that’s evenly dispersed and perfect for closer-range activities and applications. An included rechargeable Enelooop AAA NiMH battery powers the light for hours on a single charge on Titan’s low 15-lumen setting; up to 30 minutes on its 125-lumen high setting. The LED is activated and the output level set with a simple counterclockwise twist of the head. A rugged aluminum body—which features a stainless steel ring attached to its tailcap to hold your keys—is only three inches long, making Titan highly portable and lightweight. It’s also very affordable, so you can prepare for the worst by carrying the best.

SureFire XC1
ULTRA-COMPACT PISTOL LIGHT
The XC1 is SureFire’s smallest, most compact pistol light. It features a powerful, recoil-proof LED that’s focused by a specially developed multi-faceted reflector to create our broad, 200-lumen MaxVision Beam™, perfect for illuminating and identifying threats—and overwhelming their dark-adapted vision—at close range. Measuring less than 2.5 inches long and weighing just over four ounces with its single AAA battery loaded, the XC1 won’t weigh down your handgun, making it a crucial addition to concealed-carry pistols. Its compact body is constructed of lightweight but strong aerospace aluminum that’s hard anodized with a tough Mil-Spec finish, so the XC-1 is rugged enough for everyday carry. Ambidextrous switching provides both momentary- and constant-on activation for precision control. The XC1’s unique combination of power, compactness, and durability make it an outstanding choice for duty and home-defense pistols alike.
