Light weight pistol brace for Charger



Log in to see fewer ads
I would like to lighten up the weight of my Charger's pistol brace and it occurred to me that since it is only a 22 it doesn't need a heavy steel brace tube.

Does anyone know of a lightweight tube (either aluminum or polymer I suppose) that is available? I've google searched and found carbon fiber buffer tubes which tend to be expensive and for AR15s. Just need something to mount a Shockwave blade brace on.

I recall someone making a pistol brace tube from PVC pipe. Don't recall who but someone may recall that info. Shouldn't be to difficult to make if you knew the thread needed and size tube required.

Mac66,

The KAK Shockwave 2.0 tube is made from aluminum.

If You already have the Shockwave 2.0 Blade You can get the tube only at the below link.

I have a KAK tube for the GearHeadWorks Tailhook 1.

Gorgeous tube but heavy.

It is super extremely well made and is a very flat black, so I hand buffed it a bit.

It was handpicked for me, so there are truly no imperfections--not a scuff, nick, ding nor anomaly in the anodizing.

If you are not bothered by weight and if you go Tailhook 1 this one is the best.

As far as I can tell they don't sell the Shockwave 2.0 blade without the tube and they don't sell the 2.0 tube separately, or at least I couldn't find it on that website.

I am now looking for either a plastic or aluminum tube of proper diameter. Rather than thread it I will simply pin it into place.
