We just received word today that, per the ATF, it is also perfectly legal to hold the Shockwave Blade pistol stabilizer against your cheek when firing. Just make sure you maintain a ray of sunshine between the rear of the Blade and your shoulder. In other words, “don’t use it as a shoulder stock.”
Using the Blade for a cheek weld also gives you an incredible amount of additional stability. I wouldn’t have believed it if a customer of mine hadn’t tried it (with one of the latest prototypes we handed out during SHOT Show) and prompted me to give it a try. That third point of contact against your cheek really gives you a great amount of stability. (I guess three points really do determine a plane. Who knew that junior high school geometry would come in handy some day?) And the recoil of 5.56mm or .300 BLK or even 7.62mm x 39 is easily managed with just one or two hands. 🙂 And according to my contacts at FTISB, two hands on a pistol doesn’t “automagically” redesign the pistol into an AOW—regardless of what the “interwebs” say.
We start shipping here in a few weeks. $54.95 plus $4 shipping.
