Legion has imported two variants from Russian accessory manufacturer 'Lynx'.

Also interesting is some new type of handguard I've never seen before. Not sure if it's a Lynx product.

I've been designing a similar part. From my own experiments, I can say the first one won't be able to fold even close to all the way, and the second is questionable.

The issue is that the buffer tube is much wider than the AK-100 stock.

Interesting. Not that I personally want to out an AR stock on my rifle, but it will open the door for some other mods.

Does it still fold to the side?

I don't think the point is to fold the stock assembly closed. It's just to allow M4 type stocks to be used on an AK.

Even if it could close, there's no provision for the latch to hold it in place.

I think if people spent the extra cash on a folder, most are still going to want it to fold. It's easy to make it do both, so I don't see why they wouldn't. And adding a way to make it stay in the folded position is pretty simple, I have a couple ideas for that.

The concept is interesting, an M4 stock adapter for a folding stock AK that doesn't fold.....it's like everyone in Russia wants "American" stuff and Americans want the "Russian" stuff......everyone wants what the other guy's got.
