"Slide Fire" bump fire stock, malfunctions when wet

Convinced a buddy to buy one a few weeks ago after seeing a post here. We were out this morning, a small amount of snow got onto the stock, melted, prevented the stock from functioning. It did not refreeze. The added resistance of moisture (like running your finger across damp skin vs. dry) was enough to prevent the device from working as it was before getting wet. Semi-auto fire was still possible. A few hours in the sun and we were back to wasting ammo

Gonna contact the manufacturer on Monday, find out if this is usual.

BTW, IMHO, its everything you would have guessed.... a big old waste of ammo thats a heck of a lot of fun.
Very little accuracy and controlability.
Its only tactical purpose would be its psychological impact.

10/22 version please!
Someday I'll be good enough to know if a gun is accurate or not.

A can of spray silicone should make that a non-issue! Give it a try and let me know if that helps.

I don't have NEAR enough ammo on hand. `Nuff said.
