    SAR-1 price? Convert to Folder

    I have a late 90's SAR-1 with less than 200 rounds through it. I am wondering what would be a fair price to ask and if I do not sell it, is it legal in the USA to convert it to a folder? Also if it's legal what would be a quality brand of triangle side folder to use?

    Thanks

    The folding stock legality depends on your location.
    For the value, you can check the history of sales on gunbroker for example and other sites too.
    I don't like triangle sidefolders so I cannot answer that question.

    Honestly I would get a Romanian or Polish wire sidefolder and call it good. No permanent changes to the rifle and you still get the compactness of a folding stock. It's also cheaper.

    Agree on using a Romanian drop-in folder. The SAR-1 is selling for around $600 and it's value is slowly going up. I would not personally do anything to it that can't be undone, like cutting a hole in the receiver for the triangular folder lock and replacing the rear trunion for the triangle stock if needed.

    As for legality, if it is legal in your state of residence (ie you still have a constitution) you would be exchanging an imported part for another imported part, so no problem.

    I believe CNC warrior makes a look a like triangle side folder that will bolt/screw onto a fixed rear trunion.

    It has a Galil style folding engagement.

    I agree with the above posters in using the right side wire folder.

    The Romy right side folder would be the way to go, therefore you could install the factory wood stock back on if needed.

    I have an AK builders side folder kit in my Romak 991 conversion, and it's a solid stock. I would value the SAR-1 over a WASR 10 any day of the week! not sure where you find those for $600 these days, but I would scoop them up for that price! The conversion is not a DIY, unless you are skillful in the AK build trade! Noting looks as good as a triangle folder, IMO!!

    Adding a Romanian wire folder and forward dong and Amber pistol grip turns a SAR 1 into a nice PM md90 quite nicely.
