Default Question about folding stocks

does adding a folding stock mechanism add to the guns OAL when folded? im thinking of getting an ace folding stock mechanism but if it doesnt add about 1 1/2" - 2" i might be under legal OAL.

if anyone knows the dimentions of folding stock mechanisms please help

What type of gun are we talking about? AK, AR, UZI...
Life is like having a map with precise directions and exact stops, you find out that your directions and stops change as you progress further down your original map.

AK, specifically a saiga .223

they sell an ace folding stock for it which is a fixed wire stock, but if you purchase a folding mechanism separately and install it it will fold, but im not sure if that mechanism adds length to the gun or not, and if so how many inches/cm

Check with the CA DOJ first ( ) They do have laws about folding stocks now. The DOJ is very helpful in items like this.
