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 rifle style pistol 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 AR-15 pistol or Sig MPX pistol, the Tailhook Mod 1 can fit them all.

Tough brace that actually works & looks great


The Gear Head Works first gen tailhook is an amazing innovation, that gives a clean and rugged look to your AR pistol and works incredibly well as a brace. The stock unfolds to wrap part way around your forearm, taking all the weight of the front of the weapon by using the leverage of the hook. There are no Velcro straps to make noise or wear out, and since it is made of aluminum it is both light and strong. If you want a brace to actually use as a brace, this is it!
