ATF Pistol Brace Rules
On Jan 31,2023, the ATF published new rules concerning pistols with stabilizing braces.
Pistols which were sold with these braces or, if the brace was added after purchase, are now deemed short barrel rifles subject to the NFA rules and subject to registration.
The Securite team is working with our legal and ATF partners to understand the final rules and develop procedures to help our customers.
As of Jan 31, 2023, we are halting all sales and transfers of pistol braced firearms until the situation can be clarified.
Our best advice is to be patient, review the material below and get educated.
Thank you for your patience as we work through these issues.
