SB Tactical Releases the CZPDW Pistol Stabilizing Brace

SB Tactical Releases the CZPDW Pistol Stabilizing Brace
“The new CZPDW Brace from SB Tactical looks very natural on the Scorpion Evo pistol. So much so, it’s hard to tell it is not an OEM component.” Source:

When SB Tactical first unveiled their pistol stabilizing brace, it revolutionized the American firearms industry. No longer were AR pistols limited to being just range toys. Now, these handguns could be used by both able-bodied individuals, and those with otherwise limiting health factors.

While originally limited to just AR-15 pistols, due to both an initial ATF letter as well as the brace’s use of the receiver extension, these braces have been adapted to dozens of different large-format pistols.

As with every gun they’ve been adapted to, SB Tactical has sought to innovate, and adapt the brace to fit the aesthetics and ergonomics of the new gun. So naturally, it was only a matter of time until they unveiled a collapsible model designed for one of the most popular pistol caliber carbines / large format pistols on the market today: the CZ Scorpion EVO. 

The folks at CZ are dubbing it, the CZPDW. Check the press release below for further insight.

“Designed specifically for the CZ Scorpion EVO S1 pistol, the CZPDW offers three-position adjustability with a fast and convenient pull-through design. The CZPDW greatly
enhances the usability of the firearm by adding a third point of contact for stabilization
and does not change the classification of a pistol in accordance with GCA provisions.”

Here, they’re just mentioning that the use of their brace doesn’t violate NFA regulations, and enhances the accuracy of large format pistols. The actual details aren’t until the following paragraph.

“(The CZPDW)...utilizes the established Manticore Arms Scorpion Evo Slider Stock housing that is made of 6061 hard-coat anodized aluminum and features an integral QD sling attachment. Offered in black and FDE, the CZPDW weighs 13.1 ounces and measures 3.25” collapsed, 7.0” at mid-point, and 9.25” fully extended.” 

Here’s the real meat and potatoes of the piece. This new brace interfaces with Manticore’s Evo Slider Stock housing. This means the brace can be adjusted for length like the stock of the MP5 Navy. Thus, shooters aren’t stuck with either a super short useless brace or one that is so long it impedes both access to the controls and the ability to obtain a sight picture.

“Adjustable for length, the new SB Tactical CZPDW Brace fits an even wider variety of shooters.” Source:

One thing not mentioned by the article, is that the housing can be used with a standard collapsible stock at a later time. So if a shooter wants to convert their Evo pistol into an SBR, they can buy the CZPDW brace first. And once their tax stamp comes in, purchase the stock and utilize the Manticore Arms housing. It’s a great little setup, and one that demonstrates how forward-thinking the engineers at SB Tactical are.

If the success of their other products is any indication, this new PDW-style brace for the CZ Scorpion Evo should be a real slam dunk. Shooters looking to buy one can find it available now on SB Tactical’s website: for $279.99.
