Just wondering. Seen a few 'recent' buys here that look like they are still using the original, longer/wider Tailhook.

I don’t know, would need the dimensions to measure.
The original mod 1 (not the compact, but the one on the right in the above picture)....is 5.5" tall from the top of the brace to the bottom of the hinge.

Thanks. They must be locked into a contract (I'd assume)....or have a lot of old new stock.
When I got my pistol last year I wanted one of these, I sent RA an email in June and was told 6 weeks, 8 weeks later sent them another one. I was told still waiting for parts and I would be notified when they had them, still have never received anything.
Kermit hooked me up with a SAB3 which I really like (I really like M4 style stocks kinda old school that way) hate RA customer service absolutely love their firearms.
Long story short I don't know, not sure they do either.

Just measured it. It’s a 5.5” tailhook; pistol was new midsummer. (I like it.)
Thanks....I swapped all mine out for the smaller compact model (not cheap at around $110 each IIRC). Much better fit to the gun though.

Yeah, I like the SBA3 on AR pistols....and have one on a KS-12 Komrad. Works well in those applications....though I guess we're about to find out what is and isn't legal in the world of braces. I do prefer the Tailhook for the XCR though. I find very little difference even on my .308 between it and the factory stock for the rifles.
