What is the general consensus on folding stock AKs.

I would like to know what people think about folding stock AKs.

The way I see it, I have several options:


Under folding kits--Which are best Kits -most affordable

Side folding kits--Which are best kits-most affordable

Fixed stock kit with a folding stock attatchments ie. Tapco Galil style.--Which are best kits -most affordable.


Basically I would like to know the advantages or disadvantages of each approach. Which are the best (most trouble free, comfortable, durable, easiest to build etc.)?


Thanks

I am looking for comfort and durability most of all. Price is secondary, although ease of build is a consideration.

The Ace AKFX is really nice. But way overpriced.

Some people like the underfolders and some people dont. some of the other side folders (aka, the amd 65) require being permanantly attached. others require an adapter. I'd say look at the romy folder and see if you like side folders. if not, you can go on from there. but the price is right for experimentation. imho, i think they're the best. they're cheap and so if you dont like it, its only 40-50 bucks you've blown. they're comfortable, and you can change them out easily without having to use an adaptor or anything.

just my .02

going with the romy folder also lets you have the option of picking up any standard rear tang kit and just having the folder to put on if you want it. if you pick up an amd and you dont like it- you're stuck with the wire folder.
