I would say the least expensive AR-15 with a good reputation would be the STAG Model 1. Their website lists $950.

Honestly I wouldn't buy the slide fire crapola thing. And use the money to buy something good.

And don't worry about the buffer. The .22lr probably doesn't have enough recoil to operate the slide fire.

I think I remember the S&W M&P Sport going for around 800.

Good point. Although, if it would work with that Mossberg rifle, that thing is only $350 or so, I think.

Why do you think the slide fire thing is crappy? I'm just curious. It seems like it works pretty well from the videos of it on YouTube.

It's generally viewed as a gimmick that really has no value other than wasting lots of bullets quickly.

It's just a bump fire gimmick and costs a lot. People do the same thing (spray and pray) with shoe laces and rubber bands. Center fire ammo is expensive, why do you want to waste it?

I just bought my son a Mossberg Ar-22. First thing we did was disassembled it. It's just a plinkster with quadrail plastic body. That's the difference between an m&p ar-22.(200.00 too)
As far as the slide fire goes. My son can bumper fire it from the hip just like a fully automatic and accurate as hell too at the range. About a 4" group at 15 yards from the hip.
Don't get me wrong, it's a fun little gun. It doesn't have a functioning charging handle. Plastic quadrail for accessories. Comes with one 25 round magazine. If you want another they're hard to find and are about 50.00.

I am extremely dubious of those bump fire stocks. I don't see the need other than the excitement of shooting a rifle in full auto. I would suggest ranges have them and allow shooters to rent it for an hour. Beyond that I don't see the necessity. It is a waste of pricey ammo and has no practical use.

I'm sure ill get railed for this opinion. And for the sake of the companies that manufacture it they should be happy they are under the radar. Because the media would freaking jump on this item like rabid dogs if/when they become aware of its existence.
