Plan to add a bumpski adapter to accommodate an ace folder.

I built that one some time ago. I had a member named Moses make the brake. Not sure what you mean by effective.
If you meant "did it bring it to the legal length" then yes it did.
If you meant "is it loud as Hell" then yes it is.

I was referring to its effectiveness to diminish muzzle rise, given that it has that additional mass on the end of the brake to bring it to legal length.

Here is my TGI, complete with rusty Polish mag. (I replaced the piston to be 922r-compliant.)

The Bumpski adapter for the AMD accommodates Ace stocks. It is secured by the retention pin that secures the original folder, is half the price of the Krebs adapter, and probably a 1/3 the size. Here's a link:

it works great. best solution for adding an ace style stock without having to modify the rear trunnion.

Agreed. I almost pulled the trigger on the Krebs adapter, and then saw the link for the Bumpski adapter on a forum. Hopefully word spreads on this adapter. Not disparaging Krebs, but their adapter is ungainly and overpriced, in my opinion.

Love the way the adapter turned out, but I can't quite wrap my head around how it installs.

Far as I can tell, the adapter goes in place of the old arm, and is held in place by the original pin.

But how the heck is the ace stock attached? Do you have any more pictures of how it mounts?

I think you've found the best solution for fixing the greatest weakness of the AMD!

No freaking shit!? That is awesome. I was going to buy a Krebs this week, but damn, it is bulky as hell, costs too much, looks like shit and adds too much to the LOP. I understand that they were making room for the Krebs top rail to attach, but that thing sits way too high and there are better options for adding optics. Thank you very much for sharing.

Lastly, does the Bumpski adapter work with the existing folding mechanism installed in the AMD's rear trunnion or is it made non-functional? It looks like it would be functional in terms of folding. If it works, why did you install an ACE folding mechanism? Could you have just added the stock and skipped the ACE folding mech?

I think I understand what you're asking. The AMD trunnion simply holds the amd folder in place. There is not another piece to the contraption. The trunnion basically IS the folding mechanism. When you remove the amd stock, you simply put the bumpski adapter in its place, and it is secured in the trunnion with the pin that secured the folding stock. The adapter definitely does not move after secured with that pin. It simply creates a flat face to attach stock or folding mechanism to. You certainly could attach an Ace fixed stock at that point, but if you want a folder, you have to install their folding mechanism first. I paid just about 210 bucks with shipping for everything, as opposed to probably 275 if I had gone with the Krebs adapter......and it looks better.

Btw, you really have to manhandle that pin, or at least I did. So don't be afraid to bang the hell out of it, both in and out.

Just saw your post. A little more clarification. Yes, the adapter is machined to fit into the slot where the folder was, and is secured by the same retention pin. It does not move....very secure. The adapter creates a flat face, adds only about 1/4 of an inch to the LOP, and has a groove and pre-drilled holes that perfectly accommodate the folding mechanism for Ace. If you did not want a folder, the pre-drilled holes on the adapter will accommodate the Ace stock without folding mechanism as well. I'd love to show some photos, but I'm not pulling it apart....loctite and all

You did a great job explaining it, no need for the additional pictures. lol.

I was worried that I would have to drill and tap the adapter in order to add the stock and the folding mechanism. I really didn't want to do that.

I looked around for the parts, but I'm not sure I found the right ones.

Is this what you used?

Those are the Ace parts, but go directly to their website.....midway is way more....

http://riflestocks.com/store/product2.html

For your reference, I chose the 7.5 inch stock, with .5 inch butttpad. I've chosen not to install the butttpad at this point.

I appreciate all your help.

I'm going to try and be patient and see if a used set happens to come up during the holiday season. I'm sure someone somewhere, won't want it...I hope!

Is that the Tapco brake? If so, your opinion? Is it sturdy, and does it function as the Hungarian brake with extension does?
