First Look: Magpul BSL Pistol Brace

posted on January 16, 2020
For the first time in company history, Magpul entered the expanding market of pistol-stabilizing braces with its BSL Brace, providing owners of AR-style pistols with a dedicated add-on designed to provide a third point of contact for a more-steady platform when shooting.

Each Magpul BSL pistol-stabilizing brace features the classic styling for which Magpul is known. The BSL brace is designed for use on mil-spec carbine receiver extensions, making the unit compatible with most AR-style pistols on the market. Each BSL features a simple, easy-to-use adjustment mechanism that allows users to customize the distance from the end of the pistol's receiver to the stabilization wing designed to make contact with the inside of a shooter's strong hand.

The Magpul BSL stabilizing brace also includes an integrated quick-detach sling cup at the rear of the unit, as well as M-LOK compatible slots that allow slings to be mounted for both left- and right-handed users. In addition to the bracing paddle protruding from the bottom of the brace, the addition of a stabilizing sling can further enhance a shooter's ability to steady their AR pistol for more accurate one-handed shooting at increased ranges.

Each Magpul BSL pistol-stabilizing brace retails at a suggested MSRP of $59.95. For more information, visit
