    Law Tactical Gen 3 Folding Stock Adaptor

    Law Tacticalís Gen 3 Folding Stock Adaptor for the AR platform has just hit the market. Having some experience over the last year with the Gen 2 version, Iím very excited to see the improvements made to the Gen 3 version. Clearly, designers paid a great deal of attention to user feedback.

    Initially in this post, Iím going to introduce you to the new unit, and a more in-depth discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the practical use of this accessory will follow.

    Here are the components of the Gen 3 unit. The main body, which has several design changes, is now made of 4140 Tool Steel and Cerakoted black. The Gen 2 was made mostly of aluminum.





    The Gen 3 also comes with a wrench for installation. When it begins to flex during tightening, you have achieved the proper torque on the threaded flange.





    In a list of improvements, the one Iím most excited about is the re-designed Bolt Carrier Extension.





    The extension no longer requires a tool for installation. The Gen 2 version, shown here next to the Gen 3, required a screwdriver to secure in the Bolt Carrier.





    This improvement makes switching uppers and disassembly of the weapon much easier.







    Additionally, the new bolt extension design is now symmetrical. Combined with the improved housing and button material and geometry, there is now less likelihood of damage to the unit should you need to fire off a first round with a folded stock. (Note that firing a shot with the stock folded would create a situation where the BCG has not cycled therefore, the shooter would have to work the charging handle once the stock is unfolded in order to fire the next round. This cannot be done until the stock is fully locked into place.)





    Other improvements include a set screw that locks the threaded flange in place for added security; ensuring the unit will not loosen from the receiver.





    The hinge (which has adjustment for desired tension) was also lowered to decrease the risk that it will interfere with charging handle manipulation.





    The Law Tactical Gen 3 unit is available now for the introductory price of $219.99 and will have a regular retail price of $229.99. (www.lawtactical.com)
