Ive been looking for a folding stock for my ORF-74 and saw that TAPCO is offering a folding stock for stamped receivers. the stock resembles the Galil stock, and folds to the right.
anyone have a review or info on this?

No review but I like the forearm. I want to put it on my shorty shorty hybrid.

I also would to like to hear from someone that has installed one, looks to me like it would be hard to use when folded ?

I have one on the way from Scottgull in the EE. I'll let you know what I think in a few days.

It RESEMBLES the stock. It doesn't function like it.
I have feelings against aftermarket stocks, folders specifically. They generally suck, and don't do what the real stocks do... Such as allow you to use the rifle with the stock folded (can't use trigger with right hand, nor can you comfortably charge your rifle unless you custom-replace the charging handle with a bent-up one like on Galils and Romanian folders).

That one looks like you can work the handle while folded. Its ugly as hell and the whole hinge looks like ass.

Well, to be honest, It's not that it's that bad a stock, just could have been excecuted much better (stock adapters... AAHHH! they ruin any kind of folder just by moving it back just enough to screw it all up).
