Hey folks! I'm stoked I found this site! Love that this is for Canadians! I have an Umarex Steel Force (which I love) and have ordered a bunch of accessories for it, but one thing I really want is a folding stock!

I can't find ANYTHING in any forums about what would be compatible. On reddit someone said that many folding stocks will work, but I'll have to make sure the measurements are correct. Problem is, all the folding stocks I've found on sites, don't list any of the measurements needed.

I'm hoping my fellow Canadians might be able to chime in and suggest something.

Hopefully these pictures help give you all an idea of what I'm working with. These pics are with the original stock off...

not sure if it would be a direct fit, you may have to modify it but the BT-4 combat folding stock looks like it might work.

also the Umarex/VFC Elite Force K-PDW has a folding stock, not sure if its compatible as well.

Thanks, it looks awesome. Unfortunately I don't think it's going to work with my Steel Force.

You'll notice on my gun that the big chunk of metal needs the stock to slide over it. With the stock you've suggested, I'd have to remove that metal from my gun, which means ripping it open, which is very difficult =(

The only other thing I can think of is an adapter, but I think I'd have to slice off a bit of the metal with a hack saw, because the adapter is shallower than the big piece of metal sticking out the back.

You would need something like an AR folding stock adapter. You will need to modify it to fit or have one custom made.

Thanks for the reply paddyfritz, something like that would be awesome, the only problem is the piece on my gun that the adapter would go on isn't threaded, and this adapter needs a threading

The threaded side is for the buffer tube. The zinc part that sticks out the back of your rifle is only to support the tube, you can machine it if required. It has nothing inside it.
