SB Tactical set out to improve the handling of AR-type pistols with its SB15 arm brace. The SBM4 is an enhanced and streamlined design that, like its predecessor, facilitates a safe and functional shooting position when installed on an AR-pistol’s buffer tube. Made from polymer, the unit mitigates the fulcrum effect that a single point of contact can cause by embracing the shooter’s forearm. Adjustable nylon straps help retain the pistol in a safe shooting position. Price: $149. Contact: SB Tactical LLC; sb-tactical.com.

Threaded-barreled, “tactical” lever guns are experiencing a boom in popularity right now, and Ranger Point Precision has a line of screw-on Comet muzzle brakes to accommodate many of the most popular models from Henry, Marlin and Rossi.
The Italian designed Benelli M4 semi-automatic shotgun has served alongside the members of the United States Marine Corps for over the past two decades, and is also a popular commercial option.
The M1911 is now well into its second century of production, though many features of the design have been contemporized, including 9 mm Luger variants with double-stack magazine such as the Staccato 2011 P tested here, which is one of five M1911-style models made by Texas-based Staccato, the successor to STI International.
