Does anyone know where or if I can find a Folding stock for my AR? I saw that Colt came out with one for their SCW but I have not found it for sale separatly anywhere.

A folding stock is not just a matter of swapping out stocks on your current AR. You must have a piston system as well as a special, shorter bolt and a few other modifications. That is why you don't see them for sale. It is a completely difference weapons system designed to look like an AR. Those AR's with folding stocks are more AK or SIG like than AR like.

I'll be picking one of these up over the next year or so as I now have plans for a .22lr SBR.

Ace makes the folding mechanism last time I checked.

Interesting looking stoks. I'd like to see one on an AR myself. And it should really make an unusual looking SBR Capbyrd. If you do start this project, please keep us in the loop.

Folding stocks work great on rimfires. Thy do not need the buffer tube, buffer or buffer spring.

Will do. It'll be a while though. This is pretty far down on the priority list.

One of the nicer folding stock AR piston systems I have seen is made by Para Ordinance if thats what your truly wanting.

They no longer make them and have no parts for sale for them. I was going to buy a stock for my rimfre.

They still have the rifle listed on their website. They might not sell it separately though.

If you still want to pursue the Para-Ord rifle

Could always go talk to the guy who made it originally
