First, here it is again with the G17L, without the sling to reduce clutter in the pic. Note that this pistol has a threaded barrel, so it's a little longer than normal:

Did you try locking the slide back with the G17L? I'm curious if your extended slide release will conflict with the brace frame and prevent it from locking open.

Didn’t go to SHOT this year but was notified that these were coming out.

They have been running promotions for these recently - I got three of them on the way for $75 each. Excited to get my hands on one.

How thick is the whole thing in shooting position, without the added side rails? It looks like it adds a lot of thickness, but hard to tell from your pics

The camera angle is weird, so don't trust what you see on the tape measure in that pic. But it's about 2.5" wide with the rails, and about 1.75" without.

What’s the distance between the rear end of the slide and the rear end of the brace?


Here's a top view:

Image

It's about 2.5" from the rear of the slide to the end of that hollowed-out area, and about 11.25" from the rear of the slide to the end of the brace (the part that might inadvertently touch your shoulder). Subtract about 0.25" from those numbers for the thickness of the charging handle.

Back to the Polymer80 . . . here's the part where the rear of the beavertail fits into the chassis:

Image

That's where the P80 has the big problem, it has a longer beavertail and won't drop into place.

Great pics and expanation! Also you were 100% right about my brace installation not having the beavertail properly installed into the brace. IMO the slide release is still difficult to use due to the shape of the brace frame, but it IS functional now. Planning on an early morning shooting session on my property tomorrow. Will update with "range" report.

I removed the side rails; let's face it, I'm not going to attach anything to them, which makes them just about as dumb as Sinus211's thigh rig, which you'll notice he "conveniently" didn't include in his photo. :wink05:

Here's the G17L, sans side rails:

Much better.

And back to the topic of the Polymer80, here's a quick video to look at the possibilities:

Of course he puts the 17L in the brace. Compensating much?

This is cool and all, but I can’t figure out what it is good for other than just fucking around. Can’t conceal or draw it quickly like a pistol. Underpowered for a carbine, and barrel and sight radius is too short. I have nothing against gun stuff that’s just for fun, but I can’t see buying one of these

Uh-huh. :ROFLMAO:

I hit the range this morning, shooting the brace with the G17L in it. It worked fine. Yes, it stabilizes the gun nicely and make it easier to hit what you're aiming at. The recoil impulse to my cheekbone was there, but not that bad.

Was it what I would call "fun" to shoot? Ehhhh . . . not really. "Interesting," yes. The Roni is much more fun to shoot, in my opinion.

Of course, the Recover Tactical is minimalist, light and small -- that's the beauty of it. The Roni is bigger and heavier. So, it's a matter of priorities.

Any regrets on my part? No!
