Ok I finaly got one since Copes got some in stock a few days ago. I had a little trouble installing it but it's on, just turned my rifle upside down and it wen't right in. Now it's on there how do I get it to fold? The lever on the bottom won't budge and the sling mount won't either. I sprayed some Rem oil and it still won't budge, I have some CLP and break cleaner somewhere not sure how much better they will work. Is this normal with the Romy side folders?

I had to move the sling mount with a screw driver/plyers but it did move over to the other side. My pushbutton pushed down with no problem and swung to the side and locked in place fine.

Maybe I got a lemon. I'll play with it a little more if I can't get it to fold I'll call Copes. Thanks!

(Edit) I guess the rem oil worked, picked up my rifle after it sat all night, button went down and stock folded and locked in place. Glad I don't have to send it back.

How does it look? I ordered one from Cope too but couldn't really tell from the picture how they looked.

My folder is in great condition and the finish on it is the typical Romanian rifle finish.

Got mine today from them. I was wondering if anyone put thread lock on the screws to keep them from backing out? I had a little trouble to get mine to fold just put a little oil on it and it works fine.

thanks, ordered it.

i've been putting off buying one for a while- but i had better do it or i'll regret it for a while to come.
who knows when they're comming back or how much they'll cost- but i'll certainly grab them if they do.

Got mine off gunbroker for $55 about a year ago, I guess I can buy another there if I miss out on these.

there are a few sites that are selling them for 55 or cheaper now, should have waited a few days but oh well. 10 bucks wont kill me. there is a thread about it in the main ak section.

here is a hotlink

i got mine from copes today and as to the questions about look- it looks perfect. no problem with it locking.

the only problem i'm running accross is how i can justify being so evil
that and i can't put off ordering a wooden handguard from ironwood anymore, because it needs it.
