View Full Version : Tried a Slide Fire stock yesterday!

I stopped by Country Boy Sports near Homer in NE Georgia yesterday and thought I would share my experiences. I was looking for ideas/options regarding an RRA rifle that I want to change around. I got there early and while talking to Kerry the owner about his ARs I mentioned the Slide Fire stock on an AR sitting on a display case and he said I could try it for $5. I asked could I have any fun for $5 and he said I can take all the ammo that I want and just pay for what I use. I ended up shooting 80 rounds of Tula outside the shop for $20.

Anyone in the area that is thinking of getting the stock should go try it there. He had about 20 of the new style stocks on the shelf. They have a web site for those interested.

We were alone when we started, he may not be as ready to demonstrate the stock if the store if full of customers.

Need one for my S12... Might be expensive to feed, but who cares? :50cal:

I agree on the price to feed these things.

I told him that once they get something that looks good and works this good on a 10/22 or 15-22 then I'll have to have one. I did see YouTube videos of this on a 15-22 but I'm not sure if it is as fool proof in operation as it is with the heavier recoiling .223. I did plant the seed in his head so I bet he'll be trying it soon.

On a .22, it should be illegal! :rofl:That would be awesome. Not sure if it kicks hard enough to work.

While the stock is very cool,......a rubber band will get the same results.

I read about the rubber band trick yesterday and wanted to mention it but I wasn't sure if the rubber band was considered taboo here.

I'm going to try this the next time I get to shoot and see if I can get it to run with my .22 conversion bolt.

That's my main concern, it was fun to try but if I bought one I bet I would only use it once or twice, then think "well that was a very expensive couple of minutes" as I took it off and put it in the old parts box.

When did honesty become so taboo?

I think the name of the place and the town in which is is located says it all.

Thanks for paintin' THAT picture!!!

I used to love to occasionally bump a few rounds, but I can barely afford one bang per pull now!

whenever i get the urge to waste money and ammo i drive an hour into pasadena and hit the pasadena gun center where i can rent an actual fully automatic weapon for like 25-30 bucks. after 2 mags i'm over it. so far the combined total spent on full auto fun has been about 90$ over the course of 15 years. i don't think i'll be dropping the cash on a slidefire anytime soon.

besides, even if i enjoyed full auto fire i know my luck, the day i boguht one the atf would deem them illegal without any sort of grandfather clause.

I had a trade set up. The initial offering was for a Saiga 12, bump fire, drum mag, etc. I watched the videos, and I had gotten pretty psyched. Then I thought how much this rig would cost me. How much would shooting this cost me. How using this for HD is so far out of acceptable that I back off entirely. This is not to mention that it may deemed illegal, one day. I saw the story of how the designer sent prototypes and the finished product along the way. It takes just one person to take it all away.

I've noticed that the amount of fun you have using a Slidefire is inversely related to the amount of time you have spent firing real machine guns.

Bingo.

It ain't even close to the same thing.

guy had one on a 15-22 >> what ever the smith ar15 22lr look a like is, at the range here in kokomo IN, last week, that thing was awesome, now if they only made a 500 round beta mag for a 22 convesion.....

I agree also but I feel that either the rubber band or Slide Fire while being a novelty is a fun way to waste some ammo from time to time.

A few weeks ago I rented an MP5 in Athens and shot 100 rounds. It was much different than I had expected. It was much harder to control and not as impressive as I had thought it would be. Anyway I went home and read all about RDIAS and 10/22 trigger packs. I just can't afford the entry price.

MrMurphy

If you think an MP5 is hard to control, you needed someone to show you proper stance and trigger management. The MP5 is about the easiest SMG to shoot well.

Uzis are also pretty steady but recoil a bit more being open bolt.

could you get the slide fire stock installed on a GSG 5 by any chance lol?

Be honest:

Do you have any training with firing assault rifles and submachine guns?

OdinIII
01-31-2012, 21:04
No formal training with assault rifles. I did attend a class about a decade ago on long range rifle shooting.

The MP5 was the first FA that I've fired. I bought my first AR after the AWB sunset and just recently got another one in a trade a couple months ago.

I bet if you and Murphy knew me personaly that we would have totally different opinions of each other. I didn't mean to make it sound like I thought the Slide Fire should be deployed on the next SWAT raid.

I didn't take it like that. I took it as you saw a new gadget at the store, got to try it out, thought it was fun, but not sure it would be worth spending money on to own.

I've never fired full auto, and I would have taken the shop owner up on his offer too. It looks fun as a toy and would be a hoot on a .22lr. Not sure I would pay the asking price though.

An acquaintance of mine has a pretty nice FA collection, and he has the only open bolt guns I have ever shot. They definitely take some getting used to.

MrMurphy
02-01-2012, 04:36
Agreed.

I've shot (regularly) the M60, M249, M240.

For familiarization, the MP40, Uzi, suppressed Uzi, Ingram/Cobray in a variety of flavors, the MP5A3, SD3, SD5 and .40 variant (MP5A5), as well as the M4 and M16 of course in both the M16A2 and M16A2E3 (full auto) variant. Shot an Stg45 with blanks on semi.


Open bolt guns do take a little getting used, but not a ton, more an 'anticipation" when the bolt slams forward.

Yep, that was the first thing I noticed the first time I shot his M76 (or a clone, I can't remember which). It definitely feels wrong when you are used to closed bolt semi's and autos.

There really isn't enough recoil for it to work. You have to somehow get the trigger pull down to a pound or so and be very skilled with the device.

He didn't. I was watching the match to get a feel for three gun to decide if I wanted to try it or not. I decided that if I try it, it won't be at this particular gun club.

I fired a friend's M1 Thompson last month, very controllable and accurate in short bursts, but that was probably because of the weight.

Full-auto is fun... so long as you're not paying for the rounds, which over here amounts to approx. 50 cents per round...

Agreed.
