The OCCAM DEFENSE RAZOR is the simplest brace strut solution possible.  The Razor is machined from a single billet of 6061 Aluminum.  We then tumble and coat with a MIL-SPEC Type 3 blasted hardcoat anodized finish.  The RAZOR has 4 anti-rotation QD sockets (2 left, 2 right).  The forward sling mount point is positioned far enough back that you won't grab sling when you're going for the grip, as is common when switching grip.  In order to ensure maximum strength in the hinge connection, we've gone through the extra work of installing Helicoil steel inserts up front.  Helicoils give far better strength than anodized threads alone.  We've also added a clocking detail shown in the pictures above that will make it really easy to align your TAILHOOK MOD 1 vertically (ask us why we put this on...).

The base price includes the strut-- no hinge, no TAILHOOK MOD1c.  The SIG SAUER 1913 Hinge and TAILHOOK MOD 1c are available as options above.

  • Weight: 5.5 Oz.
  • Length: 7.5", 8" (NOTE: For most of our customers the 8" version is the right length!)
    7.5" 7 1/2" 8 3/8" 8"
    8" 8" 8 7/8" 8 1/2"
  • Finish: MIL-SPEC TYPE 3 BLACK (matte blasted finish)
  • 4 Anti-rotate QD Sling mounts
  • Helicoil hinge mount point
  • clocking detail for precise timing of TAILHOOK MOD1 Brace
  • Made in Idaho, USA
  • ITAR Restricted- No export permitted


There is no standard in existence for sling QD Mounts.  We use the dimensions of the highest quality QDs we can find to machine our sockets.  If you're having trouble getting a QD to stick in the socket we suggest buying a replacement QD from a reputable manufacturer.

    An outstanding product. Pairs perfectly with the 1913 strut, and offers a stable platform for weapon manipulation. The Occam Team / Customer Service was outstanding throughout the entire process, and exemplifies a customer-centric small business. Would recommend without reservation.

    Razor strut brace assembly

    Well made. Happy with my purchase. Customer service was excellent. Had to wait to get my brace, but it was an issue with a sub-supplier and Occam did their best to ship as soon as possible.

    Razor Strut/Customer Service

    Posted by Pedro on Apr 27th 2021

    So I received the razor strut and was immediately impressed. Fit and finish were amazing easy to operate and easy to install. I put this on a SaM7k-44 Bulgarian AK 47 pistol. The 9 inch version is a little too long so I contacted customer support and was surprised to find out they would exchange it for the 8 inch version. The whole time I was kept in the loop in regards to receiving the park exchange in the park , exchanging the park and when it shipped. An amazing experience overall! Thanks guys!
