    I got one of each but since I've never build one from scratch will be attempting to learn as I go. Hopefully I'll be able to get input from you more AR literate than myself.

    Maybe. It would’nt be the OSA version but I can always order a folder if I think of a reason to have one.

    Ehhh, ok, I didn't know that. That was kinda my thought initially when I saw it (there's little to nothing on PA's page about the function), then someone said you COULD fire it with it folded, it never occurred to me that was 'single-shot'.

    I don't know about how it "could" fire more than once, but if it's a single-shot, it's of less utility for me. I think I may still get one, but not 2 like I had planned.

    Anyone know if you could use the folder in a 'pistol' configuration? Meaning with the proprietary buffer and a pistol tube? I've been thinking about something super compact for a PCC, I wondered if this might be an option. Something you can put a 4" or 5" barrel on and fold up to put in a backpack or something....

    It should work just fine for a pistol.

    Anyone who thought the folder would fire more than once in the folded position clearly doesn’t understand the operation of an AR.

    This is what I want too, a foldable PCC, I'm thinking due to the proprietary buffer, it won't work all that well. May work with a CMMG 9mm upper, as they recommend normal buffers and a carbine tube. Which is why I'm leaning towards a 300 blackout if I get one.

    Eventually I should have a CMMG 9mm pistol, so I could try it out.

    I am in for a couple forged, mainly just because I like the cause, but definitely don't think you can have too many stripped lowers sitting in the safe right now. I am not a billet fan, unless its something crazy unique and over the top which these billets are not. I also really want a folder just because its different, but I can't bring myself to buy one, I can't think of any use I would have for it and I really am not into the backpack gun idea.

    Since it is something a little special I think I will do a dream build on one of them, buying all the pieces individually and specifically what I want instead of kits or sticking with one brand.

    Right now, one forged. If I can get the money before the 15th, then I might add a folder.
