It does look great.....

question:

On the 4th to last picture with the stock folded, it appears that it doesn't fold all the way to sit parallel with the rest of the gun....is it hitting against the FA? Just an optical illusion??

I was just thinking of how cool this would be the other day. Actually, I think I'd prefer just an endplate with a hook, loop, or QD socket for a sling - that way I could shoot it Euro style like I learned to shoot the MP5k PDW.

It does rest against the FA but it's almost perfectly parallel. It doesn't bother me at all.


That would bug the shit out of me...I am weird that way

I would just set it up with an upper with no FA.....no biggy.

Me again......

It is hitting the button on the FA itself, so if you punched the pin out and removed the mechanism of the FA, it wouldn't hit on the FA housing? Damn, I think I just typed "FA" a number of time.

You know.....since a .22 conversion doesn't benefit from the forward assist anyway, I could remove it and make a low profile plug so it had a finished look.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but you think they may had thought of that in their design.

It rotates a full 180 with a forward assist. More without.

Great pics Tom.


Very good info.....why is Badazzar's a different story?

Added....while I have you both here, does it lock in the folded position, or is it held folded by spring tension?

Sweet!

The reason I ask all these tuff questions is because I may have use for 1 or more of these.

Same questions....does it lock in the folded position? If it doesn't, but has enough spring tension keeping it folded, that is still just fine. If it did lock, it could be made to lock in an exact 180 degree location....not a biggy.

Other question......does it seem sturdy enough to use on a shotgun with an AR style stock adapter? Mesa, Cav Arms, etc???

Thanks.

I love how they designed the mount, it doesn't look like the ACE folding mechanisms.....which, to me, looks exactly like an after thought due to the round castle nut against the square hinge. This looks much cleaner, like a folding stock was actually meant to be on an AR style gun.

What's the overall length of 16" AR with this stock folded?

Looks like the attachment bracket adds about another inch to the back of the receiver. I can throw a tape on one of mine when I get home. (I don't have the stock, but I can get you real close.)

My guess without checking....26"-28" depending on flash hider used.

Very nice...although a CTR style buttpad would make it even better.

Cheers

Need a left side folding version.

That way there is no F/A issue and it can be fired with the stock folded.

Also needs to lock in the folded position.

How about mounting one on a Kaos? I need a compact antenna launcher.

That is dead sexy.

Damn you!
Now I will have to plan a dedicated 22 build

There is no F/A issue and it does fire when folded. If you are right handed you want it to fold to the right away from your body.


As seen in this thread it would fully open ONLY on rifles without a forward assist.

I really don't like my brass bouncing off of the folded stock... Murphy has a habit of guiding it right back into the action.

I'm right handed, I like left side folders as I find them easier to manipulate.

Any reason that wouldn't work on an older SiG 556?

Aha! Thank you!

What is the LOP (length of pull)?? It looks a bit short, do you offer a "butt pad" to help out us folks with long arms??

woofe

Damn, yet another toy to buy! Guess I better get mine before Nancy and Barack ban them...

Can you show a picture of how exactly it attaches to the lower? Perhaps from the inside of the receiver? Just curious. Thanks!

That is quite possibly the hottest thing I have ever seen on a .22 AR-15...
