I got my Tantal kit from Bob at Akron Armoury, and I'm happy except I have one question. The folder,it seems to be missing a small spring. There is no tension on the lever so I have to manually put it in the lock position when the folder is open. Is this normal? Or is it missing a small spring?

I think I understand what you're asking. You're not missing anything.

That sheet metal, wedge-shaped part has a tongue that puts tension on the lever only when the whole assembly is shoved into the back of a receiver.

Squeeze everything together, or slide it into a receiver, and you'll see where the spring tension comes from.

You might be missing a spring. I got a Polish underfolder from Bob and it only came with 2 of the 3 little pins for the folding stock. Bob said they would take of it for me so I have no complaints yet. It's certainly possible for little parts to have fallen out during packing or something. I'd give them a call if I were you.

He's talking about a Tantal. Richard steered him straight.
