The typical AR-style rifle or pistol relies on a buffer mechanism housed in its tubular stock extension for reliable operation. That fact precluded development of a folding stock assembly for such guns until Law Tactical came on the scene with its AR Folding Stock Adapter. The device works with direct-impingement or gas-piston operating systems on guns chambered in 5.56x45 mm NATO (.223 Rem.) and 7.62x51 mm NATO (.308 Win.) and with either rifle or carbine stocks having commercial or mil-spec buffer tubes. The latest generation of the U.S.-made device is machined from Cerakoted 4140 tool steel, allowing it to withstand the forces of firing when the stock is closed—albeit for a single shot until the stock is opened and the gun cycled manually. An adjustable tension screw holds the stock in the folded position and a push-button sling swivel pocket is machined integrally on the underside. The included bolt carrier extension can be installed without tools and does not interfere with the original buffer retaining pin. The device adds 1.3” to the gun’s length of pull and 12 ozs. to its overall weight. Price: $220. Contact: Law Tactical LLC, 1301 W. Rock Rd., Perkasie, PA 18944; (267) 209-0529; lawtactical.com.
