Firearm Forum Question: Legally Convert Your AR15 to Full Automatic

Ask A Firearms Question:
I understand that a company sells a legal conversion for an AR-15 Assault Rifle from Semi-Auto to Full Automatic, is this true and who makes it?
Thank you Mortal Combat

Answer:
Blog Administrator -
Yes, it is true that a company called Slide Fire (see Link below) called the SSAR-15 makes a stock conversion for a Standard AR-15 Mil Spec designed rifle. The conversion applies a principal that allows the stock to Bump Fire thus converting a standard semi auto legally issued assault style rifle to full auto. The ATF and Justice Dept in the USA have issued a letter that comes with the conversion kit stating the Bump Fire stock is legal to own and use. Sure Fire is 100 percent American Made.
The Youtube Video below shows how to install the device on an AR15 with a test fire in the full auto position.

)

My opinion and comments: I considered purchasing one of these for my DPMS AR-15, 223/5.56 M4 Style Carbine but decided against it. After consulting with several people this device over a period of time puts stress on the buffer tube and spring. On some rifles it also causes needed repair to the trigger and bolt assemblies. If I were to do this I would purchase one for my AK47 which are built more sturdy with heavier metal and can take the pounding.

Important: Before purchasing the Slide Fire bump fire stock conversion make sure it will fit on your weapon. Either contact the manufacturer of the rifle, example: DPMS; or call Slide Fire.

Cost: Ranges from $270.00 to $360.00 US Dollars for the AR15 conversion kit.

    This is a well thought out Firearms Forum. Have you considered expanding it to other areas such as Preppers or Archery?

    Thinking of getting one of these for my old Colt AR15 that has about 25,000 rounds through it.
    Keep up the good works

    1. Google has become a real PIA lately. The Friends Connect has not worked in over a week. They tend to want everyone to use Google+ and I personally don't want it.
      If you purchase one, can you let everyone here know your evaluation of how it functions and was it worth the money.

    1. Yes, I have received many emails complaining about 2 issues with Google: 1) The drop down box choices which omit Hotmail and Hush mail; 2) Google Friends Connect not working. It appears Google wants everyone to join Google+ and I don't know a single person that uses it.
      I have sent many Feedback notices to Google with no reply and no action on either issue.
