Anyone have experience with a slide fire stock?

I'm looking for folks that can tell me about the slidefire stock. Does it work as good as the videos depict? If I get one I'm not sure if I want one for my ak or my Ar... I wish they made one for the sks. Does it work as good as the videos? I'm not a rich man and I don't want to waste my money if they are junk/ difficult to use. Thanks in advance. The main reason I want it is because I have a feeling our Muslim in chief will outlaw them soon,

I've seen a few guys at the range with them. None of them seem to get a steady rate of fire and a couple had issues getting it to work at all.

I have shot one a few times. Practice helps alot. That said practice requires lots of ammo so it aint cheep. I can pretty effectively empty a 30 round mag in one burst if I care to.

all 25 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple

Let me clear the question up. I can hold any of my center fire semi autos at my side and bump fire them. I'm looking to shoulder the gun and be able to do it with little effort. I prefer semi auto but I want to purchase something that the communist government is going to outlaw if I can have fun with it. Ammo isn't an issue as I have more than a couple thousand of rounds. I've been preparing for years.

They take some getting used to, but after about 100 rounds you get the feel for how to use them, and it becomes easy to lay the fire down where you want it. I don't personally own one(my friend does), but i've used it enough where i have a good feel for it now.

A friend of mind has one and I love it. Takes some getting used to but once you do it is a great stress reliever.

I have one for my AR 15.
HUGE waste of ammo.



So I got one for my AK also.

they are a fun waste of ammo, but not practical in any sense. my advice is to convince a buddy to buy one. after using it a few times, you'll be bored with it.

if you want something that will be banned soon, get some lead and start smelting

My friends don't have any fun guns like I do.... They waste their money chasing tail..... So I can't convince a friend to buy one.

I have one, it lives on my S&W MP15-22. Only change is a better trigger than the stock one.

And yes, it works flawlessly with all types of hi-vel ammo, doesn't have to be hyper-vel.

I've tried it on my 5.56 and it works just as well, but of course that's $$$ and I only have $ so it's gonna stay on my rimfire.

Nice video. I have a .22 that " looks" like an ar, but it really isn't. So I doubt that I could use it on my .22. It is a mossberg 715t

I rented a 9mm AR at the range with one. I can't lie it was fun as hell, but I just cant bring myself to drop $400 on it right now. I was talking with the range owner and he was saying that some guys have bought them as an investment incase the ATF outlaws them one day. As he was saying all it will take is some jack A$$ to use one in another mass shooting and they will be outlawed

That's my main thinking as far as buying one goes.
