bumpfire technique
 
I’m not unfamiliar with the AR15; I was issued a colt M16 in Vietnam and loved it, upon returning home the thing that I missed was the auto function but living in California a class 3 license was out of the question and so was M16s. Now I can’t afford a class 3 but I can afford an AR15 and living in the Oklahoma county side with no one around for a 1\2 mile so I tried the bumpfire technique to simulate auto fire wow what a rush after 40 years it was great.

Has any one tried this technique and what is your opinion?

BTW: nickel rappers make perfect dust covers your AR15 Flash Suppressor

ya do it free hand? or did ya use the rubberband trick? makes for fun but dam ya can run thru some ammo

I do free hand and yes you can run up a good bill if you get carried away I like five to ten round bursts thirty round max per pay day.

I shoot at the side of a hill so I can say I always hit the target. :D

My understanding is that the issue with bump-firing a semi-auto is the risk of the rifle accidentally firing out of battery. Most out-of-battery incidents that I have seen documented have severely damaged the rifle. Full-auto rifles have additional parts to the firing mechanism that prevent this from occurring.

look at that thread of mine called Ak explodes, it can happen to full auto parts or no parts

I see nothing in your post that shows problems with bumpfire no guns firing out of battery as a matter of fact it only shows hand guns.

Let me narrow the subject AR15s there is a large difference between long guns and hand guns and also guns of deferent manufactures, the film that Righteous posted of an AK I have seen in Vietnam before, that appears to a design flaw of that weapon and the only ARs that I know of that came apart was do to a blockage in the barrel.

Do you have any info on AR15 damage from bumpfire?
I truly would like to see.

So if you did bump fire often, woudl it make more sinse to run a M16 BCG and heavier H buffer?

Pretty sure those are completely LEGAL add ons.

I unload one 30 round magazine in 5 to 10 round bursts every payday this controls the cost of ammo at the same time I enjoy the effects of autofire.

I see no reason to modify my AR any more then I already have. :D
