Rekraps Posted November 5, 2021 Report Share Posted November 5, 2021 I believe that I am the first person to receive the above noted M76 SMG folding stock adapter. This unit is designed to replace the OEM folding stock (which is, as we all agree, terrible) and allow modern stocks of many types to be mounted. Until I purchased the adapter, i did not know Opee (Brian Miles) and paid full price for the unit ($235). I own a number of guns and consider myself semi-competent with respect to working on guns. Certainly no gunsmith! Review:The unit arrived in two days packed well. There are two parts, the adapter itself and the grip bottom plate. Included in the box were detailed instructions, which were very useful. The quality of the parts was very nice. IMO, as good or better than any commercial mount or adapter. Phosphate color was a perfect match for my M76. I read the instructions from top to bottom, twice. After removing the OEM folding stock and grip, set them aside. The mounting/fitting process is not complex, however my experience is that you must go SLOW, because if the unit does not fit out of the box, you will have to file two thin bosses down until it does. Mine required that I file the bosses. Using a fine metal file, went through a process of slow filing (the bosses are clearly marked with white) and hand fitting. Do not force fit the unit. When the bosses are sufficiently filed down, then the lightly oiled unit can be pressed or lightly hammered (nylon hammer please) into position. If you attempt to force the adapter into position, it will be virtually impossible to remove. This part of the install took about 30 minutes and at least 15 iterations before things felt good. Very snug is a good word to use. I then removed the adapter and Perma Blued the scuffs (after degreasing). After replacing the adapter, i aligned it with the grip mounting screw, installed the grip base plate (presses into position) and tightened the grip onto the gun. Done. Overall the adapter is worth every penny. The finished mount is VERY strong and will be an excellent improvement over the OEM unit. I'm not sure how many Opee had made, but this is a modification (temporary as it can be removed easily) that everyone should do. As he advertised, no modifications to the gun are required at all. Any work done is on the adapter itself. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
