I find the idea of a pistol brace on the Glock an interesting idea. I always liked the FAB Defense collapsable tactical stock I saw on on Glock 18’s. I have never had an interest in getting a handgun reclassified just to put a stabilizer on it though. The B&T USW-G17 is cool too, but it has the same problem.

I know that other companies make braces, but most are pretty bulky. I find the Flux Defense really cool, but I’m just not wild about the way metal tips of the brace stick out when closed. I just saw an announcement for the Recover Tactical 20/20 stabilizer brace and it looks pretty cool. I think the way the brace attaches to the Glock is a cool idea, but I do wonder if it would have any impact on reliability.

so what does everyone think about the above brace? Anyone know of any similar non-nfa braces?

You know, at less than $100 I might eventually bite just to try it out. I've wasted $100 on lots of stuff before.

'Two things...if you feel that a stabiling brace is required to stabilize a stock Glock pistol then you should be shooting something else that's smaller and weighs less, and, I fail to see the benefit of such a device unless a longer barrel was installed, i.e., an aftermarket 16" barrel from IGB Austria:

DrewBone,

I never said that I “needed” one to stabilize any of my Glock’s. The brace is just one of those things to spend money on that a Glock really doesn’t need.

I tend to keep my Glock’s stock, all the way down to the plastic sights. Some would say that makes me basic, though I have been known to throw on a weapon mounted light from time to time.

I have always liked the B&T USW-G17 and the FAB Defense GLR-17 brace/stock, but I have no interest in getting a tax stamp or a 16 inch barrel to legally add a brace. I think it looks cool, and to tell the truth, it is probably a better investment then a pistol caliber carbine.

Hey Charlie! In my commentary above I wasn't speaking to you specifically, but was speaking in generalizations. My apologies for not making that apparent :D

I'm pretty much in the same boat as you with my Glock pistols, most of which are stock, with the exceptions of aftermarket extended trapezoid slide locks and OEM extended slide stop levers, both of which help alot with disassembly and operation of the pistols, as my fingers are weak from bad rheumatoid arthritis.

You wouldn't be the first person to buy something for your firearm because it looked cool! I've done the same in the past, but over the years I've come to realize that most of the time looks don't account for much in the way of better performance or utility. I can understand your interest in these add-ons, and if you feel they're worth the expense, by all means make yourself happy! And if it means anything, I'm in agreement with you about the pistol caliber carbines, but with me it has nothing to do with investment...I believe that a rifle caliber pistol has greater punch and range, than a pistol caliber carbine, so they're "worth" more! Below are a couple of mine...

Interesting. I wonder what the length of pull on the brace is? Looks shorter than even the Flux. Maybe not though. Hard to tell. Need more info.

I forgot I did add OEM extended slide stop levers to all my mid and full sized Glocks. I have been intrigued by trapezoid slide locks, but I still haven't pulled the trigger on one.

I really like those rifle caliber pistols you have. I have considered something like the RRA LAR-15 Pistol with 7 inch barrel.

I agree with you. For me, any sort of PCC would have to offer something a rifle caliber pistol with or without a brace cant offer. So, to me for a PCC to be useful it would need to be very compact and concealable. Preferably a similar size as a Mini-UZI.

A Glock with a B&T USW-G17 brace/stock would accomplish this, but that would require a tax stamp. If I were to get the Recover Tactical 20/20 stabilizer brace, I could have it for the look, I could strap it to my arm and for S's and G's. Should the back of the brace ever accidentally make contact with my shoulder, under current rules I would not be violating any SBR rules.

Really cool item there. Other than a “toy” I don’t know that I’d use it as a defense item as I’ll let my handgun be a handgun and for a longer gun I like one of my ARs or Benelli M4 tactical shotgun with buckshot.

Let us know how it works.

Mine is still seating in their FL facility, second day in a raw, although the UPS label was created over 30 hrs ago. :brickwall:
[Update: ETA Monday] :juggle:


Meanwhile, here is the video from someone who is more lucky.

The guy looks overcaffeinated, though! :broccoli:

BTW, my Meprolight sights and RDS QD mount (see above) arrived. Need to find a sight pusher...

Looks like a cool accessory for a glock. So... I just ordered one after seeing this thread.
I like gadgets, I like guns. There is not a whole lot of gun gadgets I like, but this one looks interesting.

Yesterday I finally have shot my new Glock 19.5 with Recover Tactical 20/20 stabilizing brace installed!
IMO, this brace is worth every penny! It really helped me to stay on the target and bullet holes on the paper were touching each other.
Burris Fastfire III 8 MOA with Meprolight QD mount on Meprolight sights held zero perfectly after 200 rds of S&B 115 gr FMJ.
An additional height of the RDS mount helped a lot.
Very ergonomic.
Shooting my Glock with this 20/20 on it was real cheating.

Approx. 25 ft, free standing.

This reminds me of the Roni.

It's FUGLY!
This Recover unit is rather interesting though and I'm not the kind of guy that's into that kind of thing. I could see it as a "get out the car" and spray bullets kind of thing. As others have stated, it would need a longer barrel. Me thinks an 8 or 10 inch barrel.
