The Gear Head Works Tailhook Mod 2 is a new and improved AR-15 pistol brace that allows you to have an AR-15 pistol with a barrel shorter than 16 inches. It is designed to be used with one hand with the brace hooked around your forearm for stability. What makes this version unique is the new telescoping latch that gives you 5 positions of adjustment for a total length of pull of 12.75”. This stabilizing brace is injection molded out of reinforced polymer and is strong enough to stand up against impacts. Because it completely covers the receiver extension, it also allows for a comfortable cheek weld for when you want to take more accurate shots. The Tailhook Mod 2 comes with the proprietary receiver extension, castle nut, back plate, and is compatible with carbine length buffers and springs. This pistol arm brace can be installed on any pistol that can accept an AR-15 receiver extension. The Tailhook Mod 2 is a great option if you are looking for a better way to accurately shoot your favorite large handgun.

  • Black reinforced polymer
  • 5-position telescoping function
  • Uses a proprietary receiver extension
  • Sling loop attachment point
  • Compatible with Carbine spring and buffer
  • Includes receiver extension, castle nut, and back plate

The fold out arm on the Tailhook Mod 2 acts as a counterbalance to the muzzle end of the pistol. Because of the new telescoping feature, you can adjust it until it balances perfectly which makes shooting for long periods of time much easier. The included sling loop attachment point can be used for additional stability when shooting.

Gear Head Works started as a hobby and quickly turned into a company that manufactures innovative aftermarket parts for bullpups, AR-15s, and many other rifles.

This is hands down the best pistol brace on the market! Switched from a sba3 to get away from flimsy rubber and velcro. Solid piece and the swing out arm allows me to one hand shoot my 10.5 blackout with ease! Very min movement get one you won’t be sorry!!

functional beyond compare


I built an ar 15 pistol on an Aero Precision upper and lower. This brace is so much more easy to use than comparable braces with velcro straps. It helps control the firearm due to much easier deployment and weight distribution.
