Does the folding stock screw need to be staked?

I’m going get a wood stock for my future FA UZI, but I’m curious since the UZI I choose will almost definitely have the folder installed.

I know the wood stock is the better one for actual shooting, kinda like how the A2 stock is better than the A3 stock for an MP5. But let’s say I wanted to switch back to the folder after removing it the first time and breaking the stakes, would it need to be re-staked or would just tightening down the screw be sufficient? Perhaps some blue loctite on the screw threads?

I’m imagining it needs the staking the way the gun was designed, especially for FA. but I’ve never had hands on with an UZI and I’m unsure.

Try to get your hands on a IMI black polymer stock if you can find one. They look nicer, IMHO

the folder is not comfortable to shoot. having a metal bar on your cheek is marginal at best

The Folder looks much cooler, and is ok for shooting (it's a 9mm after all), but the wood is by far more comfortable and practical. Try both and see what you prefer
