Press Release: Shockwave Responds to BATFE Open Letter on Sig Braces

Salt Lake City, UT (January 21, 2015)—Shockwave Technologies has issued the following statement about the BATFE open letter on Sig braces.

The January 16, 2015 BATFE open letter, OPEN LETTER ON THE REDESIGN OF “STABILIZING BRACES,” is limited to the SB Tactical product line and does not affect Shockwave Technologies products.

As confirmed in a letter by BATFE’s Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch dated December 15, 2014, the Shockwave Technologies Blade pistol stabilizer is legal to purchase, legal to own, legal to install, and legal to use on a pistol. Shockwave Technologies believes that the Blade improves marksmanship by providing additional support of a pistol while a user still holds and operates it with one hand. The company offers the product as an add-on accessory.

“We obviously defend the classification of every one of our products. And customers, of course, have the right to use them legally,” stated Marty Ewer, owner of Shockwave Technologies.

Just a quick peek at one of the Blade pistol stabilizer samples we will be delivering to dealers at SHOT Show 2015.

See you at SHOT Show,




Shockwave ZMAGs In Stock Again

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Shockwave ZMAGs for the M-11/NINE and M11-A1 guns are in stock again. You can place an order here through the site, or you can call us at 801-815-5178 with your CC info.

Thank you,

P.S. We have switched to a black oxide finish for our ZMAGs. We feel this protects the magazines better and gives them a look that’s more homogeneous with the guns themselves.

3D Print of Final Version of Blade Pistol Stabilizer

I printed out the final version of the Blade pistol stabilizer. Thought some people might like to see what it looks like in the real world—even if it is 3D printed in white ABS.

Since we are going to SHOT Show 2015, I wanted to have some samples to show folks. So we are using this 3D print to create an RTV mold that we can then cast samples from in black polyurethane. (Look for me in my Shockwave Technologies hat and t-shirt.)

In this last photo, you can clearly see the ergonomic advantage the Blade pistol stabilizer has over competing products. As you know, when you hold a pistol, your arm comes into it at an angle—not straight on.
