Teh STUPID got a folding stock

While my barrel is at the shop waiting to be cut down and threaded, I decided to attach the folding stock.  After much hemming and hawing with a little bit of measuring, I took the wood saw to the stock.  Pretty square cut for not having a vice and/or miter box.

The ACE side folder installed nicely

I had to remove a little wood from the bottom edge and also contoured the sides as well.  Here she is in all her bubba glory:

All that’s left now is getting my shortened barrel back, welding the front sight back on, and giving her a paint job.  I was also thinking of installing a stubby Magpul vertical fore grip, I might as well at this point.  I think it might help with operating the bolt, giving me a little more torque to break the action open.  Until next update….

Dive! Dive!
