Default Bump fire stocks?

So I know full auto is "illegal" in my state, so
I'm thinking of buying a bump fire stock for my Beloved AR. What I'm wondering is if it is worth buying? all the videos look good but how's accuracy? All the videos show close range targets. What about further than 30ft. Anyone used one that can give me some advise?

If your concerned with accuracy dont mess with it, your not gonna hit anything. Running an ar on full auto is unneccessarily hard on your rifle as it wasnt intended for it. You're also gonna have leos called out to your location everytime you fire it if you have neighbors. In my opinion its not worth it.

The ammo manufacturers love them!

I was just taking to some guys about them last night. Accuracy is going to be junk and it costs almost 400 bucks for the stock. Not to mention ammo prices. IMHO I don't think its worth it and somewhat impractical.

There are quite a few threads on the slide fire stocks already. Just use the nifty search feature to find them.

If you want to simulate full auto fire by bump firing your AR, try getting a lighter trigger set about 2-3# will work.
You can do this for less than half the price of the slide fire stock.
This will do three things;
1. It will keep you legal in case the BATF ever changes there mind on the legality of the slide stocks.
2. It will let you take more accurate long range shots.
3. With a little practice you will be able to bump fire 5-10 round bursts without any problem.

I have a Jard 3# single stage adjustable trigger in my AR that will bump fire real easy.

I can bump fire from a rest and put 2 or 3 rounds on a 18" gong at 300yds out of a 5 round burst. You are not going to get much better than that out of bump fire or real full auto.
So my advice is to save your money for more ammo, get a better trigger and learn to bump fire.
But one warning once you start you won't want to stop.

Wasn't the AR15 designed from the M16 a full auto military weapon?
I think the only difference is the fire control group on a mil-spec weapon.
Bump fire is no harder on the gun than fast firing a semi-auto.

I used a slide fire stock my friend had bought. I shoot about 90 rounds & I planted a lot of potatoes with it. My friend was becoming more accurate with it as time went on. It was a fun party favor but not very use full.

This topic has been covered a million damn times.

Those stocks are retarded and make the user look careless and irresponsible.
