Review: Everyone who's going to get this stock is getting it for one reason; looks. However the functionality of the stock shouldn't be overlooked and i'll cover both parts.

Looks: As far as this goes, it's the best one out there. Nothing matches as close to the real thing.

Functionality: Again, it's very good. The stock folds by pulling up on the stock and pushing over. It's held down by a spring so that it can't fold on you while you use it, very nice. While it looks like metal in all of the pictures, it's not. I believe it's a type of polypropelene plastic/resin. It's extremely durable to blunk force; you certainly won't snap this thing anytime soon. However, given the nature of the plastic it's very vulnerable to cuts and gouges. Although this material does flex ever so slightly, which makes it very comfortable.

Installation: I had a heck of a time here. I'm not sure if i just got an off sized one or what, but it was to big to fit correctly. I used a rubber mallet to get the thing on for the first time and when it was all the way in, the pin holes didn't match up. I ended up taking an xacto knife and trimming the plugs and holes to make them fit. In itself this isn't a big deal, just be prepared for it. It makes the stock EXTREMELY tight and therefore it doesn't wiggle even a little bit. but taking it off or putting it on is a nightmare. I still have to use that mallet to pop the pins in and out because they are so stiff. So once you get this on you probably don't want to mess with it much.
Conclusion: A top notch stock. It is very sturdy, doesn't wobble, and is very durable. Installation is a real pain in the rear, and it's a little on the short side and not adjustable. If you are going for the look i'd definately recommend this.
