    It's not that much lighter if at all. I have nothing against folders, I just wish that ACE would make a better mechanism, the old style ones were tighter when folded but the new style has too much play, probably because it was redesigned so it could be deployed easier without pushing on it ...

    ACE should just make an exact copy of the Galil type folder as that was the original inspiration for their stocks, they've made all their products compatable with each other, which is great but they should have just made an exact copy of the Galil's folding mechanism which is a much better design ...

    I might add you can install the folding mechanism anytime if you desire a folder with this modification. MV out!

    What is that folding stock made of?

    Is it sturdy enough to take a few bumps, or is it best left to weekend commando range sessions?

    The ACE stocks seem sturdy enough "as is" ...
    I'm not sure about a using a Delrin or hollow tube in the design, I alway's replace my tubes with solid stock and use the longest screws possible, ACE uses two 10-32 screws which I wish were a 12-24. I also wish the stocks were steel instead of aluminum. Supposedly ACE stocks are in use in Iraq and Afghanistan but I wouldn't know ...

    So, once you do this mod you can attatch any of Aces stocks? Like the M4 SOCOM ones?

    Thats exciting to know.

    Had to get a Krink first. But this guy is next.

    I always go with functionality over form, if it looks good in the end so be it. Im glad to hear the rifle handles better for you since the modification.

    If it's a stamped receiver then you can just replace the rear trunnion, if it's milled you could cut the tang off a rear trunnion and weld it to the milled receiver ...

    I saved my tangs, just in case. I would think a good tig welder could do a somewhat decent job ...
