Two New AR-Pattern Pistols to Feature SB Tactical Braces
Colona, IL– Rock River Arms, the leader in specialized Modern Sporting Rifles and purpose-built tactical firearms, adds two new 5.56 NATO chamber pistols to their LAR-15 line. These new semi-auto pistol variants were developed to provide enhanced stability and improved overall performance of the AR pistol platform.
The new A4 5.56 NATO-chambered pistols feature the field-proven SBX-K Pistol Stabilizing Brace designed by SB Tactical. The SBX-K is a shortened version of the original SBX brace, with a lower profile for improved operational handling and on-the-go maneuverability. The advantage of the SBX-K brace is that it offers an additional contact point for shooters beyond the grip and pistol fore end. When used in compliance with applicable jurisdiction laws, the SBX-K brace provides the shooter the option of a cheek weld or securing the brace to the forearm (via an adjustable hook-and-loop strap) for improved stability, muzzle control, and accuracy. As a BATF-compliant part for legal use on a pistol platform, the addition of the SBX-K brace on the new LAR-15 models makes these pistols a viable and reliable option for those looking for a compact at-home or on-the-go personal defense firearm.
The Rock River Arms A4 pistols come in two configurations—one with a 7-inch barrel and 6-inch extended length aluminum free-float RRA lightweight handguard, and one with a 10.5-inch barrel and 9.25-inch mid-length lightweight aluminum free-float RRA handguard. Both RRA handguards are M-LOK compatible for accommodating desired accessories. Chambered in 5.56 NATO for use with 5.56mm or .223 ammo, the A4 pistols with the SBX-K arm brace utilize chrome-lined barrels for durability and long life, RRA’s forged LAR-15 lower receiver, an A4 upper with Picatinny rails that witness to the handguard rails, a single-stage trigger, and a rubber molded Hogue grip.
For optimal close-quarter handling and compact, discrete transport in a pistol platform developed for maximum accuracy potential and reliable performance, the new Rock River Arms A4 pistols featuring the SBX-K pistol brace are the obvious choice for discerning shooters and defense professionals alike.
