Measure twice, cut once.

I find the easiest way is to coat the rear section with a layout fluid like Dykem or a magic marker so that you can make a clean, easy to see line.

Transfer the measurements from the trunnion using a vernier caliper.

I didn't do any thing like this.

I riveted the rear trunion in with NO cutting, then used a square to mark off the cut lines as seen from the riveted trunion. 20 minutes with a dremel cut off wheel, grinding stone, and sander, and the cutout was perfect.

Trotsky,

Are you referring to a AMD65 trunnion?
I don't understand how you could rivet the trunnion in, without making the side folder cut first.

IIRC, the trunnion will not even slide into the receiver without it.

The trunion would go in, but you would be bowing the hell out of your receiver. LOL The trunion doesn't even fit with the stock extended with out the notch. I would need to see pictures or get a detailed explanation of how you rivet in an AMD-65 folder with no notch.

He probably didn't pin the mechanism. so the stock itself isn't attached. The pin can be installed from the top AFTER the trunion is installed no? So install the trunion, cut the notch, then drop the stock in and drive the pin home. Having never done it, I would guess this way?

I did the same thing. Made the cut after the trunion was riveted. Installed the folder pin and latch after it was installed. Still haven't figured out what the middle hole is for.

meyerse ...

You are absolutely right. I simply did not attach the stock until I was done.

Rivit the trunion in, mark off the notch, cut COSERVATIVELY with a Dremmel cut off wheel, then use a small Dremmel gringsin stone to get close, and a sanding drum to finish. I completed the build yesterday, and it's perfect :) Of course, my stock is pinned for a month.
