    The later version looks similar, but also different in a few ways. The plastic stock is different, in that the 2 horizontal "bars" are closer together.
    The pistol grip is also different, with the folding knuckle attaching further back and at an better angle, giving less drop at comb and heel.
    The knuckle is newly made and slightly differently shaped, and has an integral "socket" that fits inside the pistol grip rear.
    It also folds to the left, allowing bolt handle operation. (A folding stock that locks the bolt handle in place does not sound like a bad idea to me.)

    While this may look super cool at first glance, that wire butt stock will be the most uncomfortable thing you have ever shot with.
    That G36-style bridge over the action is also a monstrosity that I can live without...

    It's an awful thing from top to bottom and it's about as far from cool for this beer holder as a smelly could be.
