I just ordered the PAK9 pistol and read where you cannot brace it on your shoulder. So I was looking at a padded buffer tube by phase 5 and was wondering if I need some kind of adapter? All the adapters I found where sold out, is there another way I can add on this buffer? Thanks
Well what I was thinking it would be easier for me to handle, I'm short and have short arms. Plus it would be better against my cheek to brace it. Don't know about that ruling cause I asked a question on a brace from a company and the guy asked me if I sent in my 200.00 and paperworks cause it's illegal.

Rights are inherent. They do not come from another's wallet.
That contraption on the end of your firearm looks like it's for a tube. The second pic you posted above will probably work assuming it's the same thread and proper diameter
Looks like the same adaptor on my PAK9.
I run an SBA3 brace. It uses a std. AR buffer tube (Included) and is adjustable.
The Tailhook mod 2 is also a great brace, it is also adjustable but uses a proprietary tube that fits any AR or AR adaptor like yours.
KAK also has several cheaper options. I ran a few blade braces.
most braces come with a buffer tube.
basically three options for a buffer tube.
The round pistol buffer tube which can be used as is or with a brace. The KAK blade uses a round pistol buffer tube but their buffer tube also has dimples in it for the set screw. All the SB fixed braces like the SOB use a round pistol tube.
The std. carbine buffer tube and an SBA3 or SBA4, or a KAK Shockwave M2. All these are adjustable by hand just like an M4 stock.
A proprietary tube like the Tailhook mod 2. Only works on the mod 2.
A brace is not a stock. Adding a brace doesnít change the status of your pistol, itís still a pistol. And per the ATF, OK to shoulder.
Be aware that the ATF has stated that modifying a brace isnít allowed. One letter specifically says not OK to remove the Velcro strap from an SB brace, because thatís how it comes from the manufacturer. BUT thereís lots of other braces that donít come with Velcro, and thatís OK too.
