    For the love of god, please stop shouldering pistols. Stop adding fuel to the fire!

  2. SkinnySkinch on January 26, 2023 at 1:40 am

    So the SIG brace for same price is better I guess.. damn

  3. Erik Griffin on January 26, 2023 at 1:42 am

    Imagine that …an item not meant to be shouldered fucks off when you shoulder it🙄

  4. rDigital2A on January 26, 2023 at 1:42 am

    The latch hardware is hot garbage compared to the sig side folder brace.

  5. Rhinox Rifter on January 26, 2023 at 1:44 am

    "They were way nicer to me than my liberal arts degree gives them any right to be."
    I loled, darn near snorted my ice cream out my nose.

  6. Andrettski on January 26, 2023 at 1:44 am

    I gather it only happens with the 9mm? and not the 22LR Charger because I just ordered one and actually got the 1913 SB brace a year ago fearing new ATF legislation so at least I’d have a Grandfather clause argument.

  7. JBrew on January 26, 2023 at 1:45 am

    So best solution is to not get any sb tactical brace and go with the SIG brace.

  8. Leonard Jones on January 26, 2023 at 1:45 am

    All out of stock right now, must be getting parts from China?

  9. Super Schwifty on January 26, 2023 at 1:48 am

    Hop… you’re still using the wrong parts. The Sig X Folding Knuckle with an SB Tactical Pistol Length Tube and SB Tactical SMB4 Brace. The length of pull is right at 13" (which makes this a legal set up). The fold holds nicely but isn’t super flush. Still, works way better.

  10. Josh Collis on January 26, 2023 at 1:49 am

    Great review. Looking for a folding brace now for my zap. Any recommendations?

  11. Online Stuff on January 26, 2023 at 1:53 am

    Just flip the brace to the other side

  12. Joshua Espinosa on January 26, 2023 at 1:54 am

    I have the FS1913 version and it is indeed fixed. This brace is solid and feels good when in my pocket near my neck

  13. The Caucasian Asian on January 26, 2023 at 1:54 am

    Anyone tried the Thordsen Buffer tube adapter? Do you think having a buffer tube and brace would work better than the 1913 folding brace? Currently about to order one or the other for my Charger.

  14. Dennis Kettinger on January 26, 2023 at 1:55 am

    Does the brace make the pistol a short barreled rifle and thus illegal?

  15. Krunchbyte1 on January 26, 2023 at 1:57 am

    Vroom vroom vvrroooooooommm vrrvrrvrvvooooorrooooom

  16. Legion 16 on January 26, 2023 at 1:57 am

    Thanks I was going to buy one of those

  17. Brian Byers on January 26, 2023 at 1:59 am

    hey bozo, how do you spell picture?

  18. Jonathan Williams on January 26, 2023 at 1:59 am

    Thanks for making positive changes in the universe, man!!

  19. armandomrgl85 on January 26, 2023 at 2:02 am

    So do I know if when ordering one, I’m ordering the upgraded one that has the folding issues fixed?

  20. XrayxRich on January 26, 2023 at 2:02 am

    I wish I had seen this video before I bought My Charger.

  21. Malcolm Reynolds on January 26, 2023 at 2:05 am

    I am in the market for the PC Charger so I really appreciate this video and the work you put into it AND your follow up with SB Tactical!

  22. Luke Donaldson on January 26, 2023 at 2:05 am

    This is so weird, I was watching your Marathon videos just yesterday

  23. jay69ela81 on January 26, 2023 at 2:05 am

    It looks like ur trying to bend it

  24. John Moore on January 26, 2023 at 2:09 am

    This brace are you able to fold it to the right side of the gun? Im looking to get a PC Charger and put the bolt handle on the left side, which I think for me would work better and avoid cluttering that side.

  25. thedreamer bigpapikoz on January 26, 2023 at 2:11 am

    Change the folding stock to fold to the right side and it will work

  26. robert allen on January 26, 2023 at 2:11 am

    I was just about to buy one but wanted an honest review first. Thanks I don’t think I’ll be buying this one for my pc charger

  27. Red on January 26, 2023 at 2:11 am

    They really need to make it a more substantial lock up. The lock up teeth and travel are so small that its not surprising that it folds on recoil.

  28. ETHRON1 on January 26, 2023 at 2:12 am

    Tim (MAC) didn’t have any issues with his, so they must have got it right. We know Tim would have hammered it if it did fail.

  29. Frank Martinez on January 26, 2023 at 2:13 am

    Get the Thordsen Picatinny tube adapter and get the SB Tactical SBA3 brace. That’s what I did for my daughter’s PC Charger

  30. John Zajac on January 26, 2023 at 2:14 am

    We had a problem with a stiff brace spring, sent the brace back, and promptly got a new brace which works fine!
    SB Tactical’s customer service shines!

  31. Operator119 on January 26, 2023 at 2:14 am

    I ran into this issue over a year ago on both the PSA AK-V and the CZ Scorpion and came to the same conclusion with two different braces using the same latch design. I’ve used several other stocks and braces with a similar design but the latch on those is better engineered in my opinion.

  32. yay4this on January 26, 2023 at 2:17 am

    Everyone: Email Franklin Armory. Ask for a binary trigger for the Ruger PC Charger to be developed.

  33. Reginal Wilcox on January 26, 2023 at 2:18 am

    So don’t buy this till there is a 2.0 version. I need answers!🤔😤

  34. Shockwave ._. on January 26, 2023 at 2:18 am

    Folding strut 1913

  35. Anonymous on January 26, 2023 at 2:19 am

    But if this was on a dedicated 22lr AR upper, would either have the issue?

  36. CaptainCiph3r on January 26, 2023 at 2:22 am

    SB tactical is such a good company.

  37. Sophisticated Sonic on January 26, 2023 at 2:27 am

    With all the cost involved, i’d be easier to just SBR it. I’m probably gonna do that for my B&T because I don’t have faith in the latch

  38. ItsAmk18-ish on January 26, 2023 at 2:27 am

    😂😂😂 I drawed you this diagram

  39. VB6000 on January 26, 2023 at 2:29 am

    Question to those who know,

    How does this fare on CZ Bren 2Ms 8" Pistol?

    Thanks.

  40. ricebowl370Z on January 26, 2023 at 2:30 am

    I mean I understand not wanting the brace collapsing under recoil that’s definitely a major issue.. but like most people.. not using a brace as intended.. braces are never meant to be shouldered they are meant to be cheek rested.

  41. John Cox on January 26, 2023 at 2:30 am

    Will this brace work with the charging handle on the left side?

  42. Kelly Schulze on January 26, 2023 at 2:30 am

    Where is the SIG Sauer PCB brace made? It’s important because of the ATF ruling as it pertains to 922r compliance.

  43. Boston SAM on January 26, 2023 at 2:31 am

    Sig makes the same one and it’s very difficult to fold. Go figure

  44. B J on January 26, 2023 at 2:35 am

    Seems like the teeth barely bite each other, send like a little filing to let it seat further would completely resolve the issue since it barely closes as is

  45. randomgamer 9780 on January 26, 2023 at 2:35 am

    Seems as a lefty, I wont have this problem, since my cheek would be pushing against the other side of the brace, helping keep it locked.

  46. Armed Prophet on January 26, 2023 at 2:35 am

    I just ordered a FS1913 brace with the aluminum strut for my 22lr charger. Do you think it will fold as well ?
    Do the new braces have a better or more complete locking system ?

  47. Myles Trumbore on January 26, 2023 at 2:35 am

    I mean, the thing is you’re using a brace as not a brace, so I’m not too surprised that it’s doing that given the design.

  48. Bryan Roof on January 26, 2023 at 2:38 am

    Change your charging handle to the other side🤔

  49. justin heer 4 dacomments on January 26, 2023 at 2:38 am

    So where can I get me one of the newer version of this brace

  50. Mark Adkins on January 26, 2023 at 2:39 am

    I have the aluminum one and it has not collasped.
