If its "easily" reversible you are in a very grey area at best. I would say (and I am not an expert by any means) is that it's illegal.
from my reading of his post, he did not say that he was using the easily reversible method. He wanted to modify that method and make a permanent fixMad Russian said:If its "easily" reversible you are in a very grey area at best.

Just the man I wanted to hear it from. Thanks!BKLYN_C said:Weld the right outer fork to the stock arm. Problem solved.
well, a special someone on here once talked to a special licensing division who gave a special statement "if it moves, it's telescoping", following that logic I would say "if it don't move, it's fixed"mattyj513 said:I am definitely set on the underfolder stock. The method I am talking about would definitely not be easily reversible, but I got that idea from a method that is. I have no intention of being a test case or getting jammed up over this, I merely wanted to see if this would be an acceptable way of fixing it, as opposed to having welds on the outside of the receiver and the arms of the underfolder.
smart. now what kind of weld, a mig/tig bead weld, or spot? as to not screw up the internals and springs of his rifleBKLYN_C said:Weld the right outer fork to the stock arm. Problem solved.
so a quick bead from a mig welder should do it then?BKLYN_C said:Weld, braze, solder. There is not ATF opinion letter on what kind of bonding must be to consider the stock unmovable.
You can weld the fork while the stock is off the rifle.
In legal terms, the stock will no longer be foldable as you will be required to disassemble and REMOVE stock completely off the rifle in order to put it into folded position.
