AR-15 Folding Stock

Dead Foot Arms showed a Modified Cycle System retro fit kit that allows a standard AR-15 platform to transform into a folding stock rifle that allows firing with the stock folded. The system uses proprietary dual spring technology that eliminates bolt bounce and reduces the overall length of a rifle with a 16-inch barrel to 26.5 inches when the stock is folded. The built in folding stock adapter provides positive retention when the stock is folded, and ensures a rock-solid lock up in the deployed position. The system includes: a modified bolt carrier group, recoil springs and folding stock adaptor kit. The end user can use their current butt stock or any butt stock that attaches to a standard AR-15. The Modified Cycle System attaches only to the lower receiver, allowing the use of any upper receiver of any caliber and any barrel length combination and allows the end user to maintain their current zero and sight picture, and supports semi-automatic fire while folded.

    Couldn’t this mod change an AR-15 into an NFA weapon?

    • Nope. Length of the barrel and some other features put an item on the NFA. A folding stock SCAR or PTR doesn’t make them NFA either.

      But a good question non-the-less.

        I didn’t realize that the AR is unsafe to fire when the stock is folded. I thought I recall there is an overall length requirement for stocked weapons regardless of barrel length.

        • You know what. I seem to recall, that there might be a overall length issue with NFA. I don’t claim to be an expert on the subject. As for the AR, when you fire one the springing sound you hear is the bolt-carrier pushing back against the buffer. The buffer resides inside of the AR stock.

          On the DI guns. The piston guns don’t have that.

          Make sense?

            Yes, I understand the function of the AR action. I was just thinking of the NFA/BFATE regs. A friend of mine who is a lawyer always says, “It doesn’t have to make sense, it’s just the law.”

        You can fire this one folded. I didn’t have time at SHOT to get into all the details, but you can see it on their website.
