Today, Shockwave is proud to introduce the all-new, compact Blade 2.0 for AR-15 pistols. This version of our highly successful Blade pistol stabilizer is even smaller and lighter—and more versatile—than the original. Injection-molder of high-strength glass-reinforced polymer, the Blade 2.0 assures durability.
The patent-pending Shockwave Blade 2.0 mounts to a proprietary carbine-style buffer tube, manufactured by KAK Industry. Blade 2.0 features a slim, low-profile design and a steel adjustment lever for changing the position of the pistol stabilizer on the buffer tube with just a finger. A standard sling slot allows users to safely carry their firearm when on the move.
Blade 2.0 is ATF-approved. In a letter from Tech Branch dated October 31, 2017, the ATF opined that “attaching the Shockwave Blade pistol stabilizer to an AR-type handgun alone as a forearm brace does not make a[n] NFA weapon.” The letter goes on to caution users against making any changes to the Blade 2.0, including a host of generic brace alterations—some of which obviously don’t apply to the Blade 2.0. A copy of the 8-page ATF opinion letter is available here.
