    If you don't feel like combat reloading, one of these would come in handy during the confiscation rebellion.

    Is that the same as bump-fire, or something different?

    Bump firing is the hand on the fore end pushes the weapon forwards. Between the push and recoil it is kind of similar to a FA except rate of fire is not as controllable as a FA. Although many claim bump firing is accurate; it seems pushing should effect accuracy. That could depend on what one's definition of accuracy happens to be.... ;)


    Here is the slide fire:

    I have not tried one so I cannot fairly comment. :D

    I don't do either, but I am primarily a hunter. Mine are placed single shots, or double taps.

    Have only used a slide fire stock on an ar platform. Fire control was fairly easy with a little practice. Two and three round burst easy to achieve. Same as an M16? not even close.

    Thanks and that was my guess. There are additional movements of the firearm and Newton's "To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction" applies. ;)

    IMO, people claiming bump fire is the same as a FA; never were issued a FA.

    Until I showed up here, I never saw either one. I am not military either. Just a hunter from the time I could walk.;)

    I have a slide-fire for an AR as well. There is a thread about it on here from about a year ago.

    Essentially, when you fire, you hold the gun as normal, then, you use your left hand to "pull" forward slightly on the stock while also pulling back/keep stationary the part in your trigger hand. This engages the slidefire and the recoil works to push the weapon back slightly, but since you're putting forward pressure on the gun with your left hand, the gun fires again.

    This is a delicate dance if you're actually trying to be accurate. But, it has it's place as a tool if you were trying to make a bad guy keep his head down. Now, I don't mean the gun sprays wildly like a water hose. You can definitely keep it on a target close in. But your accuracy diminishes as distance increases--generally this is true with any gun, but it is more pronounced here because of the slight movement you cause by "pulling" the gun forward with you left hand (while keeping it pulled back with your trigger finger hand)>

    If you have only one gun, I would suggest NOT having a Slidefire. If you have several then it may diversify your collection to fill a niche for a very limited use.

    This is just my opinion. Perhaps with practice, you could get really good with that rig. But, I don't want to burn my precious ammo to put in the necessary time.

    Regarding the theme of this thread, I think if you had a semi-auto shotgun with hi-cap drum mag--this setup would be better than having one with a slidefire. At least for me it would; especially since a 12 gauge has a lot more recoil than an AR.

    One thing about the slide fire stock is that it can be locked to prevent it's intended operation although the trigger finger rest is still there. Still think the money for a bump fire stock is better spent on other things especially for a 12 ga.

    I don't intend to buy either one, but I like to understand how they work, and what the differences are. Thank you, for the info.

    As no license was required or no one cared, I could hunt our land. However, there wasn't deer camp, plus no bird, waterfowl, or small game off home turf until I was old enough to get a junior license. ;)
