ATF Pistol Brace Ruling

The ATF clarified what they consider a "pistol brace" and what they consider a "stock". The ATF ruled that firearms equipped with “an accessory, component, or other rearward attachment” that provides surface area that allows the weapon to be fired from the shoulder indicate the weapon is designed and intended to be fired from the shoulder. This decision has effectively changed the classification of many pistols into short-barreled rifles.

This ruling does not affect pistol braces that are objectively designed and intended as a stabilizing brace. You can find additional information on the ATF’s website:
