Yep...that's what I'm saying. I wouldn't put it on one of my existing AR's, so another would be in order.

2 times a year? wow.

Class 3 license holders get inspected at least two times a year.

Four magazines in under 60 seconds, what sort of accuracy should he be expecting? I doubt that a huge selling point of the Slidefire is how much it increases your accuracy. Personally if I could not rip off 24 five shot sub-MOA groups with the thing in 60 seconds I'd return it.

Anyway, of course it's not something you'd use in a serious fashion, it's just for fun. Well, fun and potentially wrecking a nice rifle.

As you put rounds through a barrel, and approach the end of the barrel life, one thing you notice is a falling off of the accuracy. If you exceed the suggested interval between rounds recommended by the bbl manufacturer, I would suggest that the accuracy would diminish at a faster rate. My question was, AFTER or AS A RESULT OF using the product, had he noticed any drop in accuracy. I apologize, I thought I had made that clear...I have NO expectation that any degree of accuracy would be expected while using the S/F. Beyond the first round, anyway.

As far as pointing out that it's "just for fun" and not for use in a "serious fashion"....thanks for the tip.

Yes my best friend from the army opened his shop and got his a class 3 in 2009 and every six months they come to inspect his shop. They can come whenever they want if there is suspicion or if they just feel like it. It is awesome that he can buy anything he wants but he is always dealing with the ATF.

I was just being facetious, didn't mean to stir you up. But, if facts are important, that quote in your profile wasn't spoken by John Wayne. It was Steven Keats (playing Jackie Brown) in The Friends of Eddie Coyle,1973. It's also a misquote but you can work that out on your own.

Yes, facts ARE important. And while that very well may have been spoken by Keats in 1973, the FACT remains that Wayne, as SGT Stryker, spoke them FIRST in 1949 in 'The Sands of Iwo Jima'

Why don't you work on THAT, kid.

Don't bash it until you have used it. I use my slidefire stock every time I got to the range. The accuracy of my gun has not been altered what-so-ever. I have a trijicon a of on it and it still shoots accurate as can be from 100 yards. The people who are bashing this product tend tithe the people who A. Can't afford it, or B. are jealous of our damn near fully automatic assault rifles.

I get your sentiment, but let's not get carried away. MOST of the posts to the thread are from people I trust, and we are having a discussion/mild debate.

Nobody's "jammin" on your stuff, man.

I'd rather buy a 3 gun trigger, and 500 rounds of practice ammo, than buy a slide fire.

I would probably shoot just as fast and get more rounds on target.

Yeah, they are that fast.
