    In the above video, you can clearly see the user pushing forward with the off hand to fire in full auto. This looks and seems a bit akward to me. Has anyone tried it? It just seems unatural to have to push the rifle forward with one arm.

    What's even more awkward is explaining to the next guy why you're selling it :whistling:


    On topic, I wouldn't think it's that bad.

    A couple pieces of molded polymer for $349?

    I don't think so!

    Maybe if it had a realistic price tag I would consider it just for fun.

    Maybe comments from actual people that have tried it would be more helpful.....

    I have. It takes some practice to use it. However it's not that hard to do. It's controllable & pretty accurate once you learn how to push the forearm, & let the stock do it's work on your shoulder. It's easier with standard hand guards then a forward grip in my experience. Is it worth the $? Compared to the going $11K+ rate of a FA lower, plus $200, plus a 6-9 month wait. You bet!
    But it's a easy way to waste $ in ammo. As a range only toy it has a purpose, but not useful for anything. The stock & grip suck(to me at least). It's nice to use if it's someone else's :) But I wouldn't buy one.

    Been there done that.
    Was not impressed, could be a fun range toy, but that is it.
    Rubber band assisted fire, same results, same accuracy, same technique, just cheaper!
    Try about 20 cents. :rofl:

    not awkward

    got the hang of it within about three mintues

    and fun

    I've wasted $300+ dollars before in a single evening and only got a headache out of the deal.

    It wastes ammo at a rapid rate.

    For me I think its a huge waste of money. For starters full auto firing is not that accurate and from what I have been told most soldiers only use it in certain situations to lay down a lot of lead such as to break an ambush. Most of the time they use semi auto in fire fights. (so I have been told) This stock is not a true full auto so its even harder to be accurate with it. So in the end you are just making noise and wasting ammo (Money) why bother. But that is just my opinion. Buy what makes you happy. Not trying to be a hater, its just does not meet my needs.

    Full auto, is alot like sex. You can buy a toy to simulate it, but why? Just go whole hog, or don't go.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I'm so stealing that line!

    As for the Bumpfire stock, it's illegal in CA so I will never know until I go to a free state.
