Thanks for the input Dave. I've done my fair share of cussing over this issue for sure!! It's so tight it's like a fixed stock. I live in Vegas, so Im gonna drop by one of Sig's premier dealers tomorrow and see what they say. I've literally tried every way, hand combo, etc... you could possibly try. I'm 100% convinced there's a problem. My 2 buddies had issues also. The Cross rifle they had at the dealer (on display) the stock folded pretty easy, not even close to mine. I checked the rifle out and it was good to go- I thought that was going to be my rifle. What I found out later is they actually had another one in the box all packaged up (in backroom) that was actually mine.It took a bit of cussing here to figure out how to get the stock to fold. There is a trick to it. Push the button down, put left pressure on the buttstock with the palm of your hand to relieve the pressure in the locking area, jiggle( technical term) and lift up. It takes some practice but it locks up solid.
If Sig says this is the way it is, I'll just sell it and buy another rifle. No sense being frustrated as hell over a rifle I'm already starting to hate. I do like the new Springfield Armory 2020 rifles!!
