The SB Tactical™ Story

In 2010, Rick Cicero was serving his country in Afghanistan when a nearby IED exploded, leaving him wounded with severe and long term injuries, including loss of his right leg below the knee, his right arm above the elbow and lifelong damage to his left leg.

Fast forward to 2012 when Rick was at a shooting range in Florida with his friend and fellow veteran, Alex Bosco. Rick was firing an AR-15 pistol when the Range Master approached to request that he stop shooting because he thought AR pistols were uncontrollable when fired with one hand. Alex left the range that day with our country’s wounded warriors on his mind and a solution for his friend and countless other veterans that have returned from war with injury.

That evening, Alex designed a prototype made from rigid foam, and evolved that design into a rubber mold that could be affixed to AR-style pistol buffer tubes to offer enhanced shooting experiences through improved firearm stabilization. The Stabilizing Brace™ was born. In January of 2013, SB Tactical™ LLC was formed by Alex Bosco and partner, Grant Shaw. Later that year, the Sig Sauer SB-15 would be named the 2013 “Firearm Accessory of the Year,” revolutionizing shooting sports.

The Company

SB Tactical Company

SB Tactical™ LLC was formed in January of 2013 by Alex Bosco and Grant Shaw. SB Tactical™ is an innovative company that conceptualizes, designs, develops and manufactures accessories for firearms. The initial product introduced to market was the SB® 15 Stabilizing Brace™. A utility and design patent was issued for the Stabilizing Brace™ and BATFE approval was secured, positioning SB Tactical™ as the dominant market player for this type of accessory for years to come.

Since inception, SB Tactical™ has distributed product exclusively through partnerships with Sig Sauer for AR pistols and Century International Arms for AK pistols. In 2015, SB Tactical™ began directly selling the Stabilizing Brace™ family of products for multiple firearms platforms to the end user.

The market for Stabilizing Braces™ spans hundreds of different gun platforms across many firearms manufactures, from volume producers to custom fabricators. Four newly designed braces will be released in Q2 of 2015.

The entire Stabilizing Brace™ family of products are 100% U.S. manufactured in Lexington, KY.

Our Products

SB Tactical™ currently offers nine Stabilizing Braces™ for firing large frame pistols. They are made from high quality elasto-polymer and manufactured to closed tolerances to fit all pistols equipped with an AR-style buffer tubes 1 inch to 1.2 inches in diameter. The Stabilizing Brace™ uses the shooter’s forearm to provide significant support and balance, thereby minimizing shift and spin that affect accuracy. A flexible cuff with two adjustable nylon straps allows the braces to be custom fit to any user.


In accordance with Section 287(a) of Title 35 of the United States Code, our patents page serves as a notice of SB Tactical™’s rights in the United States Patents listed on this site.

ATF, BATFERegulatory Approval

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has stated that the SB Tactical™ Stabilizing Brace™ is “legal to own, legal to purchase and legal to install on a pistol.” BATFE has consistently stated that a pistol with a Stabilizing Brace™ attached remains a pistol under the Gun Control Act when used as designed.

  • Founder of SB Tactical Alex Bosco shares the company's inspirational beginnings in an interview with NRA America's 1st Freedom editor Frank Winn. "The SB Tactical 'story' is one of our favorite types to tell. There’s a case to be made that it’s even a uniquely American tale, for our nation isn’t just a place where innovations come to the marketplace, and doesn’t only create jobs and opportunities. It also finds a way to pay back, if only in small measure, those who’ve made that magic possible—guys like veterans Rick Cicero and Alex Bosco. Without their sacrifice … well, game over."

    Doing the right thing is the core of SB Tactical’s mission, and the root of their success.
