    turn your ar to full auto?

    i was just at a local gun show and saw this product for sale that looked really cool, one of them things where you say why did i not think of that. it turns your ar into full auto by just changing out the but stock for one that can slide back and forth, all you do is push the weapon forward and when it recoils it comes back but as long as you keep constant forward pressure on the it will keep fireing, sort of like a bump fire except now you keep it up into your shoulder instead of buy your hip giving you more acurate shot placement. it was around 300 bucks and if i had an ar i would have bought one, it also has a switch to lock the slide option so now you could fire normal semi-auto the web sighrt is Slide Fire Solutions - Home check it out and get one if i were u before they put some kind of a band on them, tell me what you think, and sorry if this was a topic already.

    I find I'm much more effective, and thus much happier with aimed fire. It's an expensive, unnecessary, money burner with limited application IMHO.

    It's a joy ride that has no real application. Deliberate, aimed fire is to be more admired.

    Interesting product design, and a peculiar way to avoid breaking the law with a full auto weapon. I think it would be a lot of fun at the range, but at the end of the day, the AR15 is what it is because over the years it has evolved, and this would be a core change that would make me uncomfortable relying on my weapon in a real life scenario.

    IMO, deliberate aimed fire is more effective. Hickok 45 demonstrates it here.

    You can do the same thing with a rubber band around the trigger.

    I agree re the greater utility of aimed fire. Bump fire from the shoulder without gizmos is not that difficult.

    Full auto gizmos are just to show off at the range or have some fun into a pile of dirt. Even my MP5, which I could keep a very tight group of constant full auto, I hardly fired full auto except a very small burst now and then.

    The problem with the slide fire stock is that you have to push forward in a way, if I remember correctly, and it's even harder to control and fire accurately than a true full auto m4 from what I've seen. My buddy bought two of them and modified one to work on his S&W 22. I fired maybe a mag through the 5.56 and it just wasn't for me. But, others seem to like it. Pretty much every round I fire has a purpose, whether it's 400 spread out over a week or a 1,500 round class. Each shot I'm focusing on something, whether it's trigger control, using cover, reloading, etc. This does not fit in any of the training categories for me.

    At our local range where they offer them, they can't keep them on the shelves. Some guys just love them…..and the indoor range has a few hundred new holes in the ceiling to prove it.

    I actually have one,and you can control effective bursts with practice,It is a device that replicates FA and its a way most people can get a feel for what FA feels like.My local range banned them due to the fact that there are enough safety issues with people firing standard weapons,they are about as close to a FA gun as most people will ever get,I have access to numerous FA weapons,when compared to an M16/M4 the cyclic rate is slower.I usually pull them out when I'm shooting on private land with friends,my reloads only cost me about $8.00 100 rounds so its not overly expensive,vs $7-8.00 for 20 rounds of cheap 223.
    Most people aren't gonna run out and drop 350.00 on a stock plus burn up 12-15 bucks in ammo in about 4 seconds

    ya i agree with all of u about wasting ammo and decreased acuracy but it would be fun every now and again, ontarget1911 how do you use a rubberband to make it work like that?

    I don't know about a rubberband, but one SOT tied a shoelace to an AR carry handle, ran it down through the triggerguard, and held one end of it in his shooting hand with a keychain ring around a finger. When he asked The Man for an opinon, he got a letter that said "we find that the shoelace is a machinegun". There was a similar stock for the 10/22 that was approved at first, then banned, leaving the owners holding the bag.

    The best way to get an AR to be full auto is with a $20,200 or so check.

    I like my AR just the way it is. I haven't ventured into reloading yet but i plan to in the future. That being said im paying out about 60 bucks per 200 rounds at my local gun shop who i have been doing business with for years. I just don't see the point in shooting a FA with a 30 round mag, so id be tempted to put a 100 round drum on it and thats about 30 bucks in less than a minute or close to it. If i have to do that to impress my friends then i feel bad for them lol. I would rather have a semi auto and make a crazy long shot than just burn up ammo for no reason. Just my .02

    It may not be tactically sound, but it is cool.
