it does though.. if you are right handed, hold the weapon like so (picture)Ha, ha. I am fully aware of how to unfold it. It just seems that it is not as "user friendly" as it should be. Perhaps it is just me. It definitely does not unfold in any sort of "ready position"...unless you know something I don't. Which is quite possible as I am new to this weapon. If you do, please explain.
then, simultaneously with the right hand on the latch (works MUCH better/faster with the Rapid Deployment Latch from M*CARBO; i have it on my other Sub, this one was on my desk at the time) flip the latch open, while simultaneously flipping the weapon open with your left hand. takes a small amount of practice, but you can deploy the weapon very fast (even with the OEM latch); and it looks smooth (and cool). hope this helps
