In my educated and extremely experienced opinion, a braced Stakeout/Tac-14 is the epitome of the 12 ga weapon system. There is very little an 18" barrelled and stocked 870 will do, if anything, that this weapon concept will not do just as well. And I will put up a "braced" Tac-14 up against any SBS as well. We offer three levels of Stabilizing Brace from a basic and "affordable" kit, to the best of the best, the Folding Brace.

Lets look at all of them.


This is a value-priced, entry level kit. It is an arm brace and not a stock and therefore legal anywhere a Tac-14 is legal (verify local laws). Kit includes an Ergo Grip Adapter, a pistol receiver extension, an AR-15 Pistol Grip, and a Shockwave Blade Arm Brace. A castle nut is not included since the receiver extension tubes is not required to be timed. Easily installed on a Tac-14 by the end user. Check all local laws before installing.

  • Pistol Receiver Extension
  • Ergo Polymer Grip Adapter
  • AR-15 Pistol Grip
  • Shockwave Arm Brace
  • This one is also available for Mosberg Shockwaves


It is an arm brace and not a stock and therefore legal anywhere a Tac-14 is legal (verify local laws). Kit includes a Mesa Stock Adapter, and a pistol receiver extension. Magpul MOE Grip, and SB Tactical Arm Brace. A castle nut is provided primarily for aesthetics. This kit exceeds the design and quality of other kits on that market primarily due to the angle of the "arm brace". Other systems put the "arm brace" at an awkward downward cast angle making efficient use difficult. The angles on this unit are perfect and time tested. Easily installed on a Stakeout, Amphibian, or Tac-14 by the end user. This is the best fixed arm brace unit on the market. Check all local laws before installing.

The short "non-shotgun" weapons have revitalized the shotgun world and allowed these weapons to become a viable modern self-defense, close quarters choice. And the advent of the "Arm Brace" has combined with it to form a truly spectacular, adaptable, and modern weapon. Now we bring the next evolution of this concept, the Suarez Tac-14 Folding Arm Brace System.

Most folding stocks and braces on the market were designed for light recoiling weapons, or made overseas from plastic components. They are weak and will inevitably break due to the plastic construction and insufficiently robust hinge mechanism. The power of the 12 gauge and 20 gauge demands a much more robust hinge system at its heart and that is what we make the center of this kit. Along with a robust, steel, made in America hinge and adapter system, we include an SB Tactical SOB Arm Brace, a modified Magpul MOE Grip and all the hardware necessary to turn your Tac-14 into the ultimate close quarters weapon.

The Overall Length is 33". Folded it is 24". The NFA ruling is that the measurements is with the unit "EXTENDED", so this does not change the designation of your Tac-14.

  • Textured Modified Magpul MOE Grip
  • SB Tactical SOB Arm Brace
  • Pistol Tube & Castle Nut
  • Available for 20 Ga and 12 Ga Tac-14 and Stakeouts
