    has anyone seen or have any experience with these slide fire stocks that kind of turn your semi auto into an automatic ? it looks pretty cool, i saw this russian dude using it on you tube and it looked like it worked well. it kind of uses the recoil to rock the stock back and forth into the trigger....the guy was laying down some serious lead with it..gimmick?

    first things first, they do not turn your gun into an automatic.

    what the slidefire stocks do is allow you to 'bump fire' your gun......in essence, it allows you to pull the trigger faster by utilizing the recoil of the gun.....but the gun still remains semi auto and require a pull of the trigger per each shot.

    Sure they work, but I refuse to spend that much money on something that makes my rifle less accurate. Would it be fun, sure I guess. A waste of money and ammo? You bet. But that is just me.

    He just told you what it did. Buy one and try it, if you don't mind 30 dollars a second in wasted ammo.

    thats kind of what i was thinking. ammo at these prices pretty much makes it an easy choice...cant do it. i guess it would be nice to have if the stuff hit the fan

    Just stick your figer in the trigger guard and "diddle" it rapidly. Same thing - less money. Great way to waste expensive ammunition. But you'll look so cool doing it.

    The Tavor was also ridiculously easy to bumpfire- in fact, I thought it was full auto. Unlike what Drail suggests, bump-firing uses a stiff finger, not one moving rapidly.

    Mad, not at all. My shooting is done for a purpose, even plinking. If the shot is not going to teach me something or help me improve as a shooter then I am not taking it. I have shot full auto weapons. They have their place and on some levels are very fun. But my AR is not a SAW or 240B, it's purpose is to provide accurate aimed fire. Not turn money into noise.

    I don't see the appeal, personally. Waste of $ to buy, waste of $ to use IMHO.

    But, diff'rent strokes -- if it floats your boat, have a nut.

    Make for entertaining videos but I wouldn't waste my money on one (or the ammo).

    Man...lots of Debbie Downers in this thread. Yes...they work. A buddy of mine bought several and we break them out for some occasional fun.

    We may show up at the farm with 30 or 40 guns. One or two of which might be either full auto or a bump fire stock like you're looking at.

    This is America...if you can afford it and you want it...buy it...who cares what anyone else thinks. Shooting is supposed to be fun...and rapid fire is fun.

    Only if you want to be able to run through your whole ammo supply in seconds without hitting anything.

    As Robert said in post #12, some of us have military experience with the real deal.

    And unless it is a dedicated light machine gun, full auto is a waste of ammo about 95% of the time.

    From what I understand, they are pretty easy to get the hang of.... The 2 magazines seems pretty reasonable

    I have no experience with the slide fire stock, but I do have trigger time with automatic weapons.... If you are just looking to have fun at the range, go for it....but I wouldn't count on it for self defense use.
