I have the slidefire stock for my AR. I've never installed it given that I've only had it for about 2 months (I bought it used at a pawn shop) I don't personally care to ramble through a bunch of ammo given pricing and availability at this time. But being I got a decent deal on it used, I figure it's heading to the ban list soon so it was more of an investment than anything else. And as for the .22, yes it will work. They have video's on slidefire's site showing it used on a S&W MP15-22.

As for the media knowing about it, I don't see how they couldn't. The thing has been on American Guns, it's all over youtube, and on the website it has a copy of the letter from BATFE saying it is legit.

PSA AR-15 is listed for $799 on their website.

And don't worry about the buffer. The .22lr probably doesn't have enough recoil to operate the slide fire.
Actually, it has been done on an M&P 22. A lighter trigger was installed and the faux buffer tube was greased. Oh yeah, the slide fire had to be dremeled out to make way for the oddball shaped trigger guard.

The mossberg ar-22 dose not have a buffer. A buffer system is ware the bolt carrier group gose into a tube in the stock. The tube is called the buffer tube. Inside the buffer tube is a spring called the buffer spring. The buffer spring forces the BCG back into its firing position. The moss AR is just a over priced 702 plinkster with a AR stock and rail system.

The best thing you can do right now is a 10/22 with a fostech outdoors bumpski. They use one in this video among other things.

Right now with the price of a standard ar15 and the scarcity of 223 ammo, your looking at a major headache getting involved in one of those stocks. You may end up with the rifle and the stock all together, but end up realizing you can only find enough ammo for about 10 seconds of " whoa! Did you see that!" Just my opinion

That's definitely a valid point. I bought a Mossberg 590 yesterday, so I've got my home defense needs taken care of. I think I'm going to wait a while on the rifle endeavors and see where things go with the whole gun laws stuff. Worst case, the laws get a lot stricter and at least I have one good gun. Best case, things loosen up and gun prices go down and ammo availability goes up.

Does it have a faux buffer tube? If so, it might work.

I beleive all of the issues covering slide fire were moved at one time by the moderators to this thread:

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f25/everything-slidefire-60197/

Most of the posts in this thread have been addressed before.

Slidefire Stock: It's a pretty cool toy. I've shot one, they work great, and for a "fun gun" deal it's pretty cool if you can afford to feed it.

22lr SlideFire: This is an option that can be really fun and affordable to feed, but there can be trigger issues. In most cases you're going to have to swap out the trigger, and the most affordable choice is to buy the 22lr kit from Slidefire that comes with an aftermarket trigger. The best route is to buy a S&W M&P 15-22 ($500) plus the Slidefire kit+trigger ($500). So you've dumped $1K into a plinker. Helluva fun gun though.

I think the Slidefire is equal parts cool and gimmicky. I don't own one. Perhaps someday I will. Maybe I'll decide a 22lr AR is the right host for such an accessory. I don't see my serious business ARs ever wearing one. YMMV.

Thanks for the link, fsted2a! This stuff gets real old fast.
