Never having enough ammo to just go out and test this philosophy, I am grateful to our own Ian Mccullum from Forgotten Weapons for experimenting to see if the SlideFire is indeed useful as a support-weapon. Turns-out, yes. While the Slidefire may not simulate full-auto, it does not maintain the POU (dangit… NutNFancy reference) by losing accuracy. On a support weapon, whose job it is to blanket an area with fire, it turns out to be rather effective.
So, those who own an RPK or perhaps someone looking to purchase one of FN’s new semi-auto SAW’s, a SlideFire or bump-stock may be just the ticket.
What say you? Would the SlideFire meet support weapon objectives?
