Does anyone have experience with an ACE folding stock on their milled AK. Specifically on an SLR-95. I was really considering this stock for my SLR but you have to cut the top tang off to mount it which means it's pretty much permanent and I don't want to get stuck with a bad stock. Thanks in advance for any info you guys can give me! i.e.––-Does the folding mechanism lock up tight? Is it well made and durable? Worth the money?

I have an external block on my 95 so I didn't have to cut off the top tang but it doesn't look anywhere near as nice as the internal. It is however a great stock. Very durable and tight, worth the money. Cheek weld isn't the most comfortable but if you can get over that then get it.

I also have one on an Arsenal SLR 95 with the external block. I love it. The stock locks up tight, is super durable and much easier to use than under folding stocks. The top bar of the stock is coated with polymer so it won't stick to the face in the cold. I love mine. I have the internal folder on a Mak-90 also love it.

Yes very much worth the money

I have the internal block (non-folder) and the medium length stock on a SLR93. Love it! Get the short one for a folder.. LOP works better, I think. I have the folding mech and it is tough.. gonna use it on a MAK I think.

The top bar is made out of delrin (all polymer) not coated. Other then that I echo what everyone else says. Great product.

I have an internal block version on my Mak-90

I have an Ace on my SLR-101 milled Bulgarian. I used the internal block and cut the tang. Mine is setup to fold to the left, but you can configure it to fold to the right. I am using the "super short" length stock.







I am very pleased with this setup. It's well made, locks up as solid as a fixed stock, and is very comfortable to shoot.

Man I really like that, may be worth cutting the tang.

How is the cheek weld? Also does it lock closed somehow? Or does it just swing around? Also does it come with that sling mount?

Locking folded will depend if you get the newer push button version
or the traditional version....and depending on which version you get
there are variances on how well the stock retains it's lock when folded.

All of my ACE folding mechanisms come with a sling loop that screws
to the side.

Does anyone have a pic of the adapter with an M4/Ar collapsible stock? I love my SAM but haven't been pushed over the edge to cut the tangs off of it.

I have a question on the folding mech that mates up to the receiver is that material steel?

I have the external folder block for my SLR-95. I dig it. It's solid and works well.

The web site says the locking parts are made of steel but the folding mechanism itself is made from aluminum.
