<Vanity> Bump Stocks for AR's......anyone own them?

I just ordered one, and cannot wait to shoot it. Looks like a real blast. There are several on the market and I do not want this to be an advertisement for one or the other. For those who are unaware of bump firing, it uses the recoil of the gun to fire at a high rate of speed. It looks like FA, but is not.

Needless to say, if hickock45 has a blast shooting it, you know it is fun.

Looks very difficult to control but a great way to blow a bunch of ammo.

American guns had the slide fire on their show awhile back. They loved it !

They look like fun, but for $365.00 for the Slide Fire and $400.00 for a different aluminum brand, I have other spending priorities. If they got down below $200, say $150, I would probably buy one. These manufacturers would see quite an explosion of sales if they could hit that price point.

They are likely pricing in what will likely be a short legal life and ass-tons of liability insurance. lol

From what I’ve observed, I think you are absolutely correct. Would probably be of more value to get a good rifle and learn to shoot well.

If they outlaw these then they had better outlaw belt loops too.

The BATFE can be so arbitrary. If the price point came down and too many people picked up said stock, they might just reclassify it. LOL on the legal costs.

This stock is just a novelty really. Who is going to pay $350 for it when you can get 1000 rounds of ammo and boatload of valuable practice for that amount.

Why couldn't one do all of the above?

You make too much sense.... You know how the .gov thinks. They probably WILL outlaw belt loops now(those on the sides anyway). Thanks for giving the liberal bureaucrats ideas!

Man that guy can ramble, I gave up after 2 minutes.

These guys should write a tight script and put more effort into their videos.

I see videos that look like they are going to be serious flashlight review or gear review, or something, and the guy starts rambling and repeating himself and creating a video of 30% or 60% longer than it should be.

There was one several years ago that worked quite well. Was very popular and well made.

BATFE deemed it full auto and confiscated all of them.

I believe that was because the owner modified the design after the fact. Also, that included a spring assisted device to help the stock move. The one I purchased does not include any assistive device for movement.

I have a slide fire on one of my ARs. Very easy to control. I figured I’d get one while they were still available a few months ago. Unfortunately, it’s at the bottom of a lake..

The final design was approved by the BATFE, and a letter to that effect was included with each stock. They reversed their approval a year after they went on the market.

If it simulates full auto fire, and comes to the attention of either the media or the BATFE, you can bet they will be made illegal.

There is no way of getting around the fact that the rifle only fires when the trigger is squeezed each time.

Semi-auto does not equal auto.

No way around that fact.

I remember when I could go to gun shows and buy 16 bolt carrier, selector, 2 or 3 other pieces, and make a drop in sear. Trouble was I couldn’t hit much, lifted up and wasn’t worth the trouble; except on New Years Eve.

I can’t think of a better way to waste ammo, but if you can afford it go for it.

If you add parts that trip the trigger on a semi (all original parts installed and unaltered) and make it full auto, then that semi auto is classified as full auto.

See lightening link, shoe-string AK, etc.

It is still semi auto......you work for BATFE or something?

Nothing worse than an alleged Pro-2A person trying to act like someone from BATFE.
These are even sold on Amazon.com.

No, I am nor a Fed, but have seen some fellow hunters and shooters lose their right to own firearms for the rest of their lives over stupid law violations. Anyone that trusts the current Dept of Just-us to follow the Constitution and do the right thing is severely deluded.

More than any time in out history, now is not the time to push the limits of current firearms laws.

Who is "pushing" anything? Seems the only one pushing is you, as the Slide Fire has an approval letter from BATFE dated June 7, 2010.

Having watched people shoot with the bump and shoot stocks, most end up developing bad shooting habits and typically just waste a lot of ammunition. Most can’t hit anything with any accuracy beyond 50 - 75 yards. Our range requires them to use the 50 -75 yard pistol range for shooting. There are very few circumstances that this type of setup would be worthwhile. Most (and I say most) people using this setup will become enamored with the “John Wayne” superhero thrill of fast shooting and will never take the time and effort to learn to shoot wisely and well.

Its not something I am going to use often as it would take a toll on the barrel. This just looks fun to do every now and then......shooting is about learning new skills.....and having fun. Everyone I know who has shot one has nothing but extremely positive things to say about it.

This contraption brings to mind the old Chesty Puller quote that adorns a tree at the Sniper School near Camp LeJeune, NC...

“One shot, one kill.”

Best way to watch Hickok 45 is to download his videos to a folder on your HD, and then watch them using a video player app (like Quicktime 7 Pro) that allows you to speed up the video 1.5X.

(Quicktime X has it’s own FF process but I find speeding up 2X is too fast).

With OSX Snow Leopard and up on a Mac laptop, you can also ‘scrub” through any segment that drags on too long with a simple finger swipe.

Watching them online at Youtube takes too long. At 1.5x speed, it’s informative enough (and a great shot) to deal with his banter.

YMMV.
