    I recently purchased a SSAR-15 stock for my AR-15 and was wondering if I should be doing anything different when reloading my 223?

    This is not a true full auto situation but it seems like it would be pretty close. I would think slam fires would be more common and I should look at getting harder SR primers or Milspec ones but I don't have any experience with this situation.

    As always thanks in advance gentlemen.

    I've put several magazines of handloads through an AR equipped with the slide fire stock and several rounds through an actual full auto. Nothing different than loading for a semi-auto only.

    Doc I don't know but if the pistol grip and buffertube is the same as as AR-15 I don't see why not.

    I had a pretty good time with it today for the first time.

    If I can find a return policy for not working on a DPMS LR-308 AP4, or a testimonial on it working on that platform, .......


    It's a done deal.

    Debit card is in hand....

    Email already sent to manufacturer. :wavey:

    If I buy one, and it doesn't work, I'd have to buy one of those puny .223 AR's. [​IMG]

    Bump fire works on all semi auto firearms.

    Don't do anything different with your ammo.
