Do these stocks lock in the folded position?

They do not lock in the sense that you'd have to push something to make it release to fold. It stays folded and does "stick" in position. It will not unfold unless you want it to.

The above is true but if I may clarify, once folded or unfolded you cannot move the stock, it is basicly "locked". You need to push up on the folding device itself to change the position of the stock.

Yes. It is a good design IMO.

How about the "Cut the Tang" modification? Is this a good piece? I want to get a folder, but the foreign ones are hard to find, and I don't like the reciever extension blocks that ACE offers...

Here's a couple of threads I've squirreled away...

Save your money and wait a few monthes for these Vepr folding stocks...

Check out the video.
If they are not made by Ace already, they will put Ace out of the AK folding stock business.

Unless they make one for a milled Bulgarian, the ACE is about my only bet.

Why do they have what appears to be a sling attachment loop on the end of the buttstock that sticks up above the end of the buttstock? Poor design if that is what it is.

Haven't they been saying these were going to be available for about a year now?

The design of the stock overall appears to very much like the ACE stock.

It's a throwback to this...

I think I'd go with an ACE, because it's basically the same but you can get the ace for a little under $150 this folder is $200

Maybe it's the picture but the Vepr stock looks like a TAPCO special. Here are some pictures of my ACE installed on a AMD-65. The "Cut The Tang" installation was easy.

I have seen some threads on here where people have cut the tang off their milled receivers. I think they should be taken out back and flogged for doing that. Its one thing to cut a replaceable trunnion, but to hack up a nice milled reciever is nuts.

Yeah, I agree. I would only do the ACE mod to an AKM. I would definitely save the milled.

A BIG +1! Looking at my beautiful SAM-5S, there is no way I'd cut the tang. That's why I've scounged like hell to get the Bulgarian tubular sidefolder (e.g. SF models) for this weapon. Now I KVAR would just make it available for everybody -- and at a decent price.
