Looks like May 20th is it for slidefire, anyone else get the email?

Maybe this gets moved, maybe it's OK - but must be a result of the bump stock ban?

On Sunday, May 20, 2018 at midnight CDT, Slide Fire will cease taking orders for its products and shut down its website. All orders placed by May 20th will be processed and shipped.

Limited inventory will be added to the website as it is available. Any items that can be ordered should ship within 5-7 business days. Additional notifications regarding inventory will be sent as changes occur.

Thank you for your support.


What I don't get though is slidefire sells more than bump stocks - seems like they could reasonably re-invent themselves as a Magpul or the like. Maybe this is partially to make a point about impact to business?

Whatever the case got the email, that's what it said.

There are bunches of people trying to figure out how to file suit against them. Doesn't matter if they 're-invent' themselves if three times their profits goes to legal fees.

For the shooting in LV I assume you mean?

Is that why they are actually going out of business?

It isn't as if I am a corporate insider or anything, but that is what I read between the lines.

Before there's too much "reading between the lines" and not enough facts.
