Bump Fire stocks
« on: May 11, 2012, 08:57:52 AM »
I have seen these bump fire stocks pop up as of late, though I'm sure they have been around for some time. I had recently seen one offered for the SKS but required you to have the Tapco stock (AR style colapsing buttstock.) Has anyone tried any of these? Or are you considering it? Just kinda want to get a feel for how much this might catch on. Thanks.

I wasn't for certain to even try one but the idea is intriguing considering they tried to make SKS's automatics but I don't think it ever worked out for them (thinking the Chinese maybe?) I'll post the link for the one I saw.http://www.gunsamerica.com/940128194/Guns/Rifles/SKS-Rifles/SKS_bump_fire_stock_system_in_kit_form.htm

It says cobra on the packaging, im not familiar with that brand. It is very interesting, i would think it work just fine. I wonder what may have caused the chineese or whomever else from building a full auto sks? I thought they just went the ak bc they re cheaper to buil and didnt feel they had reason to keep improving the siminov. I could easily be wrong actually thats reallu just an assumption on my part.

I think that is exactly what happened. The AK was there and it became pointless. Now as to using this thing I think fixed mags vs. detachable, considering feeding reliability, could put a used one in your hands for cheap.

I use the tapco twenty rounders right now and they feed and work great. 20 rounds would go to fast on a bump fire tho. When the g7 adapters are available i think theyd match the bumpfire stock pretty well.

Indeed the tapco 20 rounders fit nice and tight. Heck when they are empty they fit up real nice to just the bare receiver. I'm definitely gonna get more of those mags. I'm also gonna look around locally for another SKS to keep a stock looking one.

A company called bumpski was going to make a bump fire stock for the SKS. Dont know if its out yet.
It's an SKS, it'll work long after you don't.

Yeah at first i thought this one musta been bumpski, im curious to see how theres turns out. It seems interesting with the different attachment to different rifle options.

This one does not look worth it too. Rather just buy another gun for that price.

Yowsa, yeah the price is crazy but that is approximately what an AR or AK bump fire stock form another company are going for. I probably won't get one but wondering if anyone here would.

Id have to say it depends on what your compareing the price to. Its much cheaper to have less than one thousand into a rifle with a bumfire stock than to pay ten thousand plus for a legal full auto rifle. But then again I Ideas certainly understand that a bumpfire stock isnt for everyone it is fairly difficult to be accurate at over twenty yards with one when in slideing mode.

I just don't see the advantage of having a bumpfire stock on an SKS

The ammo salesmen see the potential advantages !  :lol:

You don't need a three hundred dollar stock to bump. Or a rubber band, for that matter.
