Yay or nay?
Buffer tube, instead of screwing into the receiver ring, now screws into the folding adapter. The adapter itself then screws into the receiver ring, between the receiver and buffer tube. This gives it the folding capability, and provides a little "tooth" to retain the bolt in case you were to fire it while the stock is folded. You'd only get one round off then you must extend the stock and then cycle the empty casing out.
We all know it can't cycle while folded however most reviews of it involve people trying it anyway, being able to fire once while folded then unfolding and cycling the empty would be a useful feature for this as otherwise carrying the rifle folded adds a full extra action to be able to fire.
yeah, youre also making the buffer system incredibly more complicated without much gain. The fact that it requires more steps to fire is an obvious draw back to the luxury of a more compact form of transportation. The way the piston is designed in the AR, firing without it being able to unlock is stupid
Yay, has its place especially on SPR's
Boku no google.
To note, this is a Gen 2, which were made out of aluminum. They were too weak to reliably be fired folded.
The current gen, gen3, is made of steel and can safely be fired folded.
So the gen 3 can be fired while folded on multiple occasions without parts breakage now? Has the capability to do that been mentioned by the company at all or been tested by any reviewers to see how much it can be done without damaging the adapter, because if it is able to fire while folded now and then without damage then I might just pick one up.
stupid and pointless feature.
"Thank god I had 1 freehanded shot before I needed to unfold the rifle anyway, then charge it, then I could fire again."
It would be faster just to unfold the fucking thing from the get go
I severely doubt it would last very long, but it can definitely be done. Manufacturer doesn't recommend doing it but it still can. Basically all the force is being applied to a steel tab, it'll get worn or bend eventually.
Personally I just use a gas shutoff valve on mine, but that's another story.
>you still can get cheek weld
All of the PDW-style stocks are fine for cheek weld unless you're one of those guys trying to snort coke off their charging handle or using some garbage scope with an eye box ten feet behind your head.
Butbutbut......muh nose to charging handle
This is a pistol.
All the others are rifles.
Will the BCG extension work with one of these 9mm BCG?
>9mm ar15 with folding stock.
Sig MPX is pretty close to that.
meh. folding stocks are so last year. wake me up when the other end of your fun folds.
yeah i have no idea how effective it actually is.
i just know i find these pics sexy as fuck
