Slide Fire announced a last day for orders Tuesday in anticipation of a bump stock ban from President Trump’s Department of Justice, Breitbart reports.
Slide Fire is the nation’s preeminent bump stock manufacturer, so their decision to close up shop is very telling.
On Sunday, May 20, 2018 at midnight CST, Slide Fire will cease taking orders for its products and shut down its website.
Orders placed prior to May 20th, 2018 will all be processed and shipped. Enter your email below if you’d like to stay updated on any future news. We thank you for your support.

Bump stocks are simple pieces of equipment that replace the stock of a rifle and add a small “support step” in front of the trigger. The shooter rests his finger on this step and pulls forward on the barrel or forward grip to press the trigger against his finger. The recoil of the shot then propels the rifle backwards into a gap in stationary stock where the loose fit gives the rifle freedom to bounce forward. This, along with sustained forward pressure on the rifle, has the effect of ‘bumping’ the trigger back into the shooter’s unmoving finger. So long as a shooter maintains forward pressure, the rifle will continue to fire at a rate much faster than could be accomplished with even the quickest possible series of manual trigger pulls.
These are not accurate, they destroy your firearm due to the extreme heat and are used mainly for fun, these are not used by LEO or the Military, just as a hobby at the range.
The propaganda machine of the Democrats continues to attack the 2nd Amendment, NRA and freedom of American citizens.
