Have my tailhook. Have my stock. No adapter! Boooooo

Soon...

I know I know. I've already bought 2 new guns since you posted this because I'm wanting new goodies. An adapter would cost me less.  ;D

You can probably 3d print one for free at your local library.  A few people are working on different designs.  One of the vendors posted an estimated cost of $60-120 per adapter on FB.  I'll probably stick with the printed one for awhile.

Hey guys. New member here and I know this thread is a couple months old but wanted to bump this topic.

I can't get the pictures to pull up on this thread but would like to see them. Maybe someone could message or email me?

Anyways - any updates for y'all on which you like better now after some more time with them?

I posted on another thread but it also seems fitting here. I wanted the Tailhook but without it having their own ATF letter or the ATF giving an open letter I don't feel safe for the occasional or accidental shouldering of the Tailhook. I get the theory behind the "it should apply to all braces now" but there's no documentation that actually supports that. And I'm not going off of YouTube'ers here. I've read all the letters and this is how it makes sense to me. No manufacturer is gonna help defend me in court I'm pretty sure.

Anyways, I wanted the Tailhook but felt my only safe option was the SBTEVO.

A lot of the picture links have been disabled by the worthless Photobucket site.

You can see all my pics here.  When Photobucket turned out the lights on 50% of the hosted pictures on the internet I quickly gave up on updating my posts everywhere.

Super super happy with my Tailhook/YetiWurks adapter/CZ cheek rest setup.  No regrets at all selling the SBT EVO.

So I like the look of both the SBTEVO and the Tailhook Mod 1 , and even though I feel about evenly for both of them cosmetically which one does everyone like the look of better cosmetically?

Had both been available, I would have taken the Tailhook. It's basically 90% the original stock, minus the end part that makes it a whole stock. It literally fits into the gun because it was meant to. The price isn't bad either.

Ok so I'm majorly back on the fence again concerning these two items. I feel like I really want the Tailhook option now for a couple reasons but mainly cuz I think I'd rather have the OEM CZ Custom Stock now. It just looks so good.

But right now I want the FDE version which isn't available and prolly won't be for awhile. So I'd have to buy the full normal stock, then the GHW adapter and Tailhook Mod 1. After all the taxes (CZ) and shipping I'll be at $350 at least for the Tailhook Mod 1 right now. Which is a TON! I might as well file a Form 1 and buy a stock. Just seems so expensive.

Ok so another option is to just be more patient and wait for GHW to get everything back in stock but that'll still run me $270 which is $100 more than you can get the SB Tactical SBTEVO brace for on sale if you find it at the right place at right time.

With that extra money I could upgrade Charging Handle and trigger & trigger job etc.

Only other sane option is to wait for the Tailhook craze to calm down and hopefully MAYBE prices will go down.

If we are going merely off of function - they both work just about the same. Not that huge of a difference for cheek rest or the occasional or accidental shouldering of the device.

What does everyone think? Any help would be greatly apppreciated. I'm wanting to make a decision in the next couple days hopefully.

Get a SBT Evo for ~$150 off one of the register-to-see-prices websites.  Use that until the Tailhook you want is available.

The SBT Evo is very nice and will serve you well should you decide to just stick with it.  I'd use the funds for internal upgrades.
Instructions:  Remain calm.
