Q: We received a firearm for transfer manufactured by PWS. It has an 11″ barrel and is marked as a pistol but it has this collapsible thing marketed as a “brace” by a company called Maxim Defense. Here’s a link https://www.maximdefense.com/product/maxim-cqb-pistol-exc-for-ar15/ We contacted maxim defense and they sent us a letter from the ATF approving an arm brace that they also make. For this “cheek brace” they sent a letter from their own lawyers that says they believe it is OK based on the wording of the original ATF letter. We are entering this thing as a pistol in our A/D book. Can I send you what they sent us? I am concerned that this stretches the SBR rules but if it is legit I’ll go ahead and transfer it.
