since this is a topic that keeps rearing its insane head about a ridiculous product im just making it a sticky and hope it keeps the forums clear of this topic.

I don't really understand the infatuation with this product... People always say its a fun piece to mess around with because it simulates FA. My thought is, I can blow through ammo in my S&W AR 15 as fast as I can pull the trigger but after about 4 or 5 fast shots Id be lucky to hit the broad side of a barn at 10 paces... That tells me I'd just be wasting ammo while not hitting the target which to me seams stupid! In my opinion I'd rather spend the money on more ammo and guns than a silly gimmick that has NO practical use...

stickied? really? Why can't we just have these things nuked? Or what about a review article to be done with it?

Ok, for all you experts, just a general question and would like to know your thoughts. How long do you believe the ATF will allow the "SSAR Bump Stock" To remain legal? Or will it remain that way?

If I'm not mistaken its legality is still in question.

The legality is not still in question. It is currently Status: Approved. And I believe it will remain so. In fact, each one is shipped with a copy of the ATF approval letter.

Unlike the other "full auto simulating" devices such as the gat and hellfire trigger systems, the slide fire stock in no way modifies or even affects how the trigger operates. It doesn't have a mechanism to press the trigger for you. It doesn't change the operation of the trigger or any other parts in the fire control group. (trigger, hammer, sear, disconnector) all unaffected by the slide fire stock. You still need to press the trigger one time for each shot and need to do so with your own finger. That is semi auto any way you look at it. The ATF is not thrilled to do so I'm sure, but they have no choice but to allow it. If they ban it, then by extension they are also banning all semi autos across the board. Any semi auto can be bump fired. Even without the stock. Some are just more difficult than others to do it with.

Yes, I have one. Yes, it works. No, I will not sell it.

Lol thanks for the correction and info. I haven't really been keeping up on it. I admit they are cool but I am against just dumping rounds down range. Lol
