The Gear Head Works Tailhook Mod 1 is the pistol brace that started it all. What makes this arm brace stand out from the rest is the extremely compact size and durable aluminum construction. With the press of a button, the arm folds out to brace against your forearm and counterbalance the weight of the muzzle. Now you can accurately shoot your favorite large handgun all day long. Because it balances the firearm against your forearm, it allows you to relax your wrist and focus on trigger control. This stabilizing brace can even be set up for left handed shooters. Whether you have an AR15 pistol or Sig MPX pistol, the Tailhook Mod 1 can fit them all.

Love this gearhead brace!


I have this and the SBA3, and I love ‘em both for different reasons. This brace looks awesome, and works amazingly well when you open it and clamp it against your wrist, countering the weight of the pistol with ease. It is rock solid in both positions, and won’t break like some plastic braces. The ONLY drawback is it doesn’t have an approval letter from the BATFE for shoulder fire like the SB tactical braces do. But you can still make a nice cheek weld.

A+!!! Rock Solid

Started out with one on my CZ Evo and loved it! Rock solid and works very well. I just put one in my Draco and I’ll be getting another for my Sig SWAT. One of the best things I ever put on my pistols.

The best of the best pistol brace


I love my tailhook mod1. I think what sets this pistol brace apart from all the other ones is that it's made from aluminum. If I build or buy another pistol I will be buying another.

Fantastic Brace


Fully recommend this brace. It's hell for stout and well made.

Great product for a short AR

Friend milled down a 7075 mil spec 8.35 buffer tube. It fits perfectly in the notch. Created a brace made completely of aluminum with out any play. Looks fantastic.

Too expensive

These are great braces as I like a solid feel. Simple, solid, and lightweight but more worth about $60
