The Patented Tailhook MOD 1C is 30% lighter and 30% more compact than or standard Mod 1. With a profile similar to the SCW Tailhook it truly is the most compact pistol brace on the market today. At less than an inch thick, it can be adapted to practically every platform on the market. To activate the brace functionality, depress the release button and pull the arm down. This creates the shelf that will counterbalance the muzzle weight of your large frame handgun. The ability of your forearm to hold the weight allows you to relax your shooting wrist and concentrate on trigger control. True one handed operation is achieved since you do not need a second hand to attach the brace to your arm. MOD 1C can be set up for right or left handed operation.
