They generally look the same, externally.. so what are the detail differences between the DDR and Polish Tantal folding buttstocks?

I know I've seen both, but never the two side-by-side..

What's the 'giveaway'?

Quoted:
Externally they look the same, but the internals of the lever spring are slightly different.


So, they both fit equally well, to standard fixed-stock guns (like Romanian)?

Really, I want to know about the small internal / external differences.

Sure that makes perfect sense..

I also thought there was a subtle difference in the Tantal rear trunnion, which would also be reflected in the stock.. perhaps not.

Thanks, -L

EG and Romanian wire folders are longer than the Polish.

Now that I did not know.

On a slightly different note, I did discover a detail difference between the DDR and Romanian folders.. the DDR unit has a 1" sling swivel!

What a PITA. Now I have to drill & punch out that rivet, and re-install a standard swivel.. where am I going to get the correct rivet?? [>:/]

There are 2 variations on the EG stocks, that being both large and small sling loops.
