Will the rifle still be over 26 inches with this stock folded?

Yeah, what's the exact length? Anyone measure it themselves?

I ordered one. I'll measure it when it arrives hopefully tomorrow.

Previously I had posted in Rifleman forum to check the retractable stocks since Dean had mentioned some were recalled due to not making the minimum.

As far as I know Dean would nnot ship the folders if they did not meet minimum specs.

I just received the folding stock. Looks very good.

I took some critical measurements at work of the stock only.

There is a 0.5" spacer between the pin cap (end cap) and the folding mechanism. Another 1.125" to the end plate. Total distance from pin cap to end plate is 1.625" that is 1 5/8".

When I get home, I will measure the complete setup unassembled first to make sure it will meet 26" minimum reequirement.

Short of installing it on the rifle, I measured at least 4 times in different ways.

I lined the stock hole verically below the corresponding rifle hole and measured. It was about 3/16" short. In the open position, the rifle measures over 34". Longer then the stock rifle.

I know what the solution is.:

1) The O ring spacer needs to be 1/2" wider. That would definitely take care of the problem and give a good margin (over 26" total folded).

or

2) Add a 1/2" rubber pad to the very end piece when the stock is folded.

The folder maybe totally legal in other states, but not in California the way it is supplied.

You are welcome.

I will go over to Tap Plastic and have them cut to size a 1/2" plastic piece to attach to the very end. It's the easiest solution. Unless a wider spacer ring is available (which would probably necessitate longer screw bolts.)

I stopped at the hardware store this morning on the way to work and picked up 1/2" longer cap head bolts (M5 0.80 pitch) and plastic 1" spacers/sleeves.

Installed the bolts and spacers. From the looks of it, this should work since previously the stock was 3/16" short.

I'll measure the stock/rifle again tonight.

The spacers I got were white. I need to find black ones or find black metal ones.

Visually, they look like an extended buttpad that has been done for the FN rifle.

I took preliminary measurements and was satisfied that it was going to work with the stock installed. I installed the stock and used tape cover over the spacers to blend them in with the rifle (temporary). I'll find black spacers or have them made.

Anyway, total measurement is now 26 & 3/8" with the stock folded. Here is a crappy picture (due to not using the correct lens) but you get the idea.

I found black plastic spacers at Emigh Hardware in Sacramento. They were 1.25" so I cut them down to 1". It looks good now. I took measurements again as well as pictures.
