Default Un-Pin Sam 7 SF Folding Stock

hey guys, gonna be running a fixed mag on my Sam 7 SF AK and was wondering if anyone could give me any tips on the best way to un-pin the side folder.

the rifle is about 28.5" while folded so it would surpass the OAL required at 26" if running a fixed mag + folded.

I haven't looked at the mechanism too hard just wanted to see if you wizards had any pics or experience with doing it.

Thanks as always!

Not really.
You could leave CA.

If you choose to stay in CA, ANY rifle that is under 26" long in it's shortest functional configuration is considered an SBR.
Any NON-AW SEMI-AUTO CENTERFIRE rifle that is under 30" long in it's shortest functional configuration is considered an illegal AW.

Registered AW's can be under 30" but must still remain over 26".

So you can get around the 30" rule by making it NOT be semi-auto or centerfire or by registering the rifle as an AW.
There is NO way around the 26" rule.

Quote:
(a) Notwithstanding Section 30510, “assault weapon” also means any of the following:

(3) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.

ok, thanks for the info you guys, didn't know about the other part.

If I pin & weld on a longer brake or fake can I'm assuming that's ok to meet the 30" mark without issue?

75% was gonna do that anway maybe that'll twist my arm if that meets compliance without any gray areas..

You can permanent attach a long muzzle device that makes the gun exceed 30" overall length when the stock is folded and that along with a fixed magazine would make the gun legal to have a folding stock in CA.
A folding stock counts as a feature so you need to go fixed magazine as well unless the gun is a registered AW.

Ok cool, definitely would be running a fixed mag if I decide to pin & weld a can then work on the folding.

Thanks again.
