    Default Side Folding Triangle Stock for my AR

    I was on the KAC website today and saw their PDW, which looks really nice BTW. What really caught my attention was the triangle side folding stock. I would love to have one on my AR. Would it be possible to swap my regular collapsible stock for a this side folding metal one without any major mods to the rifle?
    I looks like KAC does not sell the stock as a stand alone unit though. If it's a question of mods to my rifle, a Bulgarian, Russian or any other triangle side folding stock could be used, right?

    Thanks.

    Could be done...would require mods to the rifle tho.

    Those "PDS/W"s are piston driven with a shorter BC. been looking into making one myself, but am still having trouble finding out how the recoil works, since there isnt a buffer assy.

    im guessing it would have to be a shortened internal buffer? Just enough to shoot the bcg back into battery... interesting tho, either way. If someone knows exactly how this whole setup works, id love to learn.

    yea that looks mucho like the proposed ar-15 replacement!

    it has probably got the spring, buffer & bolt carrier group in sort of merged to save space.

    i don't think it would be easy to do on a AR-15.

    I've seen a few AR designs without buffer tubes, they usually were piston driven with the piston attached to the carrier and the recoil spring was wrapped around the piston. Imagine an FAL system with the piston mated to the carrier instead of just shoving against it.

    I like the ones from robinson arms, but they are pretty pricey.

    On the description Pirate put the link up too. They say "piston driven."
    Only thing I see I dont like is the right side folding stock.
    John. I would want a left side folder.
    Other than that. God that thing is awesome.

    I agree. It looks like the right folding stock may interfere with shooting the weapon. I left side folder would indeed so VERY SWEET!

    Hard too tell by looking at it. But with a left folding stock. It seems you could still get at the button too send the bolt home after a mag change.
    Right side seems like it would interfere with ejection of spent casings.
    Wonder why they did that?
    I did not see a price on Pirates link. Thats not good when they dont show the price.
    I'm guessing in the rich peoples range.
