Hey guys..............I need an opinion. I have looked at the SEAK II and it's a really nice rifle, but I was wondering what the general consensus was toward folding stocks............Pro and con? Any opinions? Which should I get and why?

Most are uncomfortable and inpractical save for QCB use. They do look cool though and the solid poly and skeleton stocks are alot more comfortable than the underfolders and wire stocks.

I used to be "full stock" all the way until I actually tried a Romy folder on my SEAK. Was very pleasantly surprised at the amount of good cheekweld when using irons and the near-perfect cheekweld & eye position when using the PK-AS sight. Doesn't look as "kewl" as some of the other folders but function is far more important to me than aesthetics.

Because it's not an overpriced AR???

I have been very pleased with the Romanian side folers for a good while, I bought some from FAC that were welded open, just to try them out, ans was very happy with them, I fire left handed and I actually get a slightly better sight picute with a Romy side folder than the wood. It took me a long time to warm up to thier looks, but now kind of like the way theu look. I certainly like the way they work now that they can fold. As a matter of fact I have a couple of extras now that the ban is gone, and it is so easy to make the elded units funtion. I will be holding on to these for use on rifles that I acquire in the future.



Like you I've picked up a couple of spares (now refinished w/AlumaHyde II) to put back and managed to pick them up before the prices went up and also like you I'll be darned if the looks of the Romy folder don't eventually grow on you!
