Tantal wire stocks and replacing it...

I'd like to put a different one on besides that wire one. Its too short for my arms and I dont want to put a huge pad on the end of it. I'd like to put a triangle side folder on it, but where do I get one that will fit? I know about Ace folders, but I'd rather stay as eastern bloc as possible with it.

damn, how long are your arms????
If you remove the folding mechanism and wire stock (two roll pins and a screw to remove) what your left with is basically a fixed stock trunnion.... so anything that you can mount onto a fixed stock trunnion. The triangle folder requires quite a few mods and if your using the selector on the left side it may not work. One of the after market K-var type triangle folders that mount up to fixed trunnions might work. Those tack on a few more inches in length too I think.

If it were me, I'd just stick with the wire folder.. or stick with something that requires no permanent mods.
SA58 is right on about removeing wire stock. on mine I removed the pins and screw and replaced the wire stock with wood and I love it. And I can put the wire stock back on if I want to. The only mod I did was drill and tap the 2nd hole so I do'nt have to mess with the pins. also you will have to remove the grip to remove the folding assy. good luck
