I hope I put this post under the correct board. Anyway here's my question....
Is it legal under Federal Law, to install a Slide fire Stock onto an AR15 PISTOL? Anybody have any knowledge of this? Is the BATF okay with putting a Slide Fire Stock, or other Bumpfire Stick on an AT Pistol?

What ral357 said. As I understand it, once a lower starts as a pistol, it has to remain a pistol.

Nope. Don't do it. It'll get you a stay at "club fed".

That's a grey area. If you bought a stripped lower and it was only put in the bound book as a receiver, you could get away with switching it around. You would still need the tax stamp to put the stock on a pistol length barrel.

Yea Bubba can go get some other inmate for his "New friend". Someone who is not me, I don't swing that way. :mad:
Anyway I was just curious and I kinda expected the answer to be something like Doing so would violate the rules of the NFA.
I wasn't 100% sure, Tha ts why I asked. I didn't want to call the arc and ask them because I know what they've done to people who ask those types of questions. They assume you're doing something shady, possibly trace your call, and show up at 5:00 in the morning to "Check out your weapons collection", no no no don't need that. I've nothing to hide, but I like my dogs and don't want them being killed to keep quiet before they busy in. :confused:
Thanks for the comments...o_O

Why don't you just ask the BATF?
Read my last comment and you'll see why I don't want to call the BATF.:p

In addition to the down trots of Club Fed, the sinks are too low and the soap smells funny (so I've been told)
All the more reason to avoid club fed whenever possible. I think I'll just maybe get an AT Rifle for the slide fire stock, if I decide to get one at all. Hav ent decided, so far don't have either one yet.

Some years back there was a fellow at our city range firing an SKS equipped with a 30 round duckbill, clamp-on bipod, and a burst fire crank. He wailed away - I'd venture to say at nothing in particular, creating a lot of dust downrange, and in short order was out of ammo.
And a good share of his money I'd bet.

I had one of those gatling cranks a few years back. It functioned as advertised. Back in 1997 I had a hellfire device on one of my AK' s. I got it to spurt once, but other than that one time, the thing was a biggest price of junk ever made. I couldn't ever get it to work again. Worst 20 bucks I ever spent. I tried it on each one of my five AK' s. Worthless pile of metal junk the hellfire device is.:(

I cleaned up your post some. Watch the language please, and thanks.

I just had to get a Hell Fire system for my SKS back when they first came out. Mine worked just fine, but all I was doing was firing a bunch of ammo thru the rifle, and was unable to actually hit anything shooting from the hip. It's sitting in one of the drawers on one of my gun racks.

Personally, full auto for the most part is useless. Military only uses it on the ground for cover fire. Otherwise they tend to only fire in semi auto and short bursts. As the old adage goes, "Speed is great, accuracy is better."
