    Optics Planet has them on sale with an instant rebate through 4/21...saw it mentioned in another thread and decided it needed to be posted.

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/sb-tactical-sba3-stabilizing-brace.html

    Black
    FDE
    Grey
    OD Green
    (All have black strap, but you can usually find a SplitFix in a coordinating color)

    It does say 9-18 days to ship for one color I checked (OD), and 4-6 weeks on another (Grey). Shipping is free, but they do charge tax (at least for NC).

    If anybody near Charlotte wants a black one, I have one I’ve recently installed. But, I’d like an ODG one. If you wanna order ODG and swap with me, I’ll chip in $10. Mine has been to the range once to test fire a build, but that’s it.

    If you want a SplitFix, the Kryptek Typhon is a good match for that one. The grey brace is a decent match with the Magpul Stealth Gray.

    @BigWaylon where’s the best place you’ve found to order the splitfix? Hoping for a Kryptek Typhon but black would work as well.

    Directly from Wise Men is the only place I’ve ordered. I think I have 6 from them so far.

    Well, crap. Decided I was going to go ahead and order the OD one and the instant rebate is gone...thought it was good through today. Went from $104 back up to almost $130. :(

    ETA: I’m good...just found it for $98.99 elsewhere. :D

    Yep. Passed on that one. Website was being funky for me. I’d created an account sometime in the last week for an ammo notification. But it wouldn’t take my “forgot password” click after multiple attempts. I thought I knew my password but it said it was incorrect.

    $93.63 @ L&L for ODG. Found it at Gun Pro Deals for $98.99, it was worth the $5 to order from a place I’d had experience with.

    Please see my thread on Locked & Loaded from a few weeks ago. I doubt I’ll be ordering from them again, not really worth the slow shipping, poor CS communication, missing item that took 3 weeks to get, and borderline-expensive shipping. And this was before the panic buying started.

    Wish I had seen that thread before I bought from them! Still no product, no order updates and no word back. :(

    I bought an SBA4 but haven’t got around to completing the build. My understanding is the 4 is more rigid than the 3 so went with the 4.

    Looks like you guys prefer the sba3 over the sba4?
