Had a top notch experience with customer service! The SBA3 brace without buffer is hard to find and when I saw that Freedom Trading had it in stock I had to grab one. Love the color of this brace. The only knock I’ll give it is that it was super tight when I threw it on my milspec buffer. I gave it a shot on two others (both milspec) and this thing is very very tight. Way tighter that the other SBA3’s I have. Hopefully it loosens up after use. Gave it 4 stars because of the figment, other than that it’s high quality. I’ll definitely be shopping here again!
