I have never seen this mentioned here but heads up........

I was finishing up my polish underfolder build the other day.  Prior to fitting the complicated stock assembly I was looking at the rifle and wondering about the overall length with the stock folded.  Since the stock was going to be "fixed" open until september, I measured it before installing.  Using the sight line between the front and rear sight as the horizontal line and then extending vertical lines front and rear at 90 degrees, I measured almost EXACTLY 26 inches end to end with the welded slant comp.  If I didn't install the slant or used a muzzle nut, the gun would come in under 26".  I had no idea underfolders were this close.  I know a lot of people are planning to install underfolding stocks after the sunset and should be careful.  

I would be curious if all preban underfolder models (chinese, yugo etc) are this close.  I can't imagine the polish kits being unique but you never know.

The Global Trades slant brake is about 1/4" longer than the commie version.

If/when the ban expires, rifles with folding stocks will be measured the way they have always measured, which is with the stock open.

Remember the 26" OAL was part of the NFA of 1934.
It has nothing to do with the AWB of 1994

Wow, that's interesting if true.  Can anyone else confirm this?

I have my doubts though since the weapon is fully functional with the stock folded.  If the weapon is not functional when folded (such as the Kel-tec) this would be true I would think.

E Gads ! Not this subject again !

The OAL of a folding stock rifle is measured with the stock OPEN !

Look at a underfolder Chinese Type 56s , if they weren't legal they would have not allowed them to be sold and their current owners would have been arrested.
