They start about $75 and go up to about $250.  Pick the one you like.

Don’t have brace, but I have a “tube + blade” that I will let go.    You will still need an adaptor to accept the tube... 

PM me in case you are interested.

fixed, folding or collapsible?

How much ya wanna spend?

I went cheap on mine, buffer tube adaptor & KAK Shockwave. Back then there weren't as many neat options. Fairly light & while not adjustable on the fly, it's adjustable for LOP. Can't remember what I paid for the adaptor but the Shockwave tube & blade is usually $60-$70. Using a buffer tube isn't the slickest looking setup but allows for the most options in braces.

I've always liked the SBTEVO, looks good, folder, and SB braces are comfortable.

And while not the cheapest, the factory folder with a Tailhook mod 1 is one of my favorite looking setups.

I got mixed feeling on the collapsible ones. I've had an MP5-22 rimfire for years and while the collapsible stock looks cool, not very comfortable. Like an AK underfolder. Not as big an issue if you're mounting optics high and using a chin weld but not as much fun getting down to a cheek weld for irons.

Dan Haga designs. Unfortunately the price after everything is closing in 420-500 just for this brace set up.

If it helps, that is an amazing looking Scorpion.

Agreed. But I ended up picking up a second scorpion for just a couple hundred more that was brace equipped  8)

Picked up a new in the box  SBTEVO from a guy on one of my other gun boards for $115.00 shipped. Thanks to all.

That's a pretty hefty price for a brace, but it is undoubtedly the nicest looking brace I've ever seen on a Scorpion. It reminds me of the FN SCAR with the adjustable cheek piece. Very good looking and unique too,  I may have to give this one some serious thought.

Congratulations on a beautiful Scorpion.

I wish that was mine. That's taken off Dan's website. I gave it serious thought too but picked up a 2nd scorpion. I may still do it if I have the patience to wait for sales, etc.

That brace is awesome! I'm sure a few of us on this forum could make one for less than $400....

Mr Haga, it's a pleasure. That is a beautiful stock. I've done small runs of injection molding,  so it would be fun to try to replicate the tailhook adapter for the ACR stock. After pricing everything individually though, your pricing is right on for the work and parts involved.

Just curious, the Bushmaster ACR stock is made from a high-impact composite polymer material. From what I understand, the Dan Haga replacement brace is made from a 3D printed nylon material (correct me if I'm wrong).  How does the strength and durability of the two different materials compare?

From all aspects, the Dan Haga design brace for the Scorpion seems like an extremely high quality product, but I'm just wondering if the strength of the replacement parts are the same as the parts being replaced and could I expect similar durability. I'm not trying to criticize the design. If I didn't like it I wouldn't even be asking this, but I'd like to know if the replacement parts will be as durable as the original parts.

I guess it all boils down to whether 3D printed nylon is as strong as a high impact composite polymer material. Are there any forum members who have experience in this sort of thing?
