[SHOT 2016] New Slide Fire SSAR-15 MOD Stock

Slide Fire SSAR-15 MOD adjustable rapid fire stocks

Slide Fire’s rapid fire stocks have been extremely popular since they were first introduced several years ago. The latest from the company takes their AR stock and upgrades it with improvements and new features based on years of use in hands of shooters.

The first and most obvious change is the adjustable butt stock. Similar to standard AR carbine-style stocks, the new Slide Fire SSAR-15 MOD has six separate positions for a perfect fit for every shooter and every clothing and gear combination.

A change that isn’t nearly so obvious is the tightening of the slide. The first generation Slide Fire stocks had a great deal of play, but new manufacturing processes allow a much tighter fit without compromising free sliding during rapid fire. This will probably be a very welcome change to many Slide Fire users.

The rapid fire switch that permits the shooter to toggle between rapid fire and standard fire has been moved to the base of the new ergonomic pistol grip. A quick twist changes from single shot shooting to rapid fire or back again. In addition to the rapid fire switch, a new lock down switch on the stock allows even tighter securing of single shot mode, providing a solid foundation for careful aimed shots.The pistol grip also features santoprene inserts for a secure and comfortable grip.

The finger rest is ambidextrous on the new Slide Fire, and it can be quickly snapped from right-hand to left-hand shooting without tools. The stock also features an ambidextrous QD sling mount.

The new Slide Fire SSAR-15 MOD fits any standard AR-15 that is set up for an adjustable stock. It is available in black and, just off the machine, flat dark earth.

(Note: The finger rest on the FDE unit in the photo is black, but the rep noted that this would possibly be changed once full production began.)

    Actually this has been out for a while. My buddy snagged this stock in the summer when they first introduced it. it had teething problems as it rubbed and the grip was broken but Slidefire replaced it with no questions. Great company and it is a blast to use it now.

  • Vhyrus

    Looks good, but I don’t think it will be able to compete with the double fire response trigger packs.

    • thedonn007

      I agree. I am hoping that the double fire triggers will get down to about $200. I would pick one up for sure then.

      • Stan Darsh

        Does Liberty Gun Works sell just the trigger parts now? It looks like you have to spend $800 on the complete lower to get the bi-directional trigger.

        • thedonn007

          Franklin armory has one for $400. Fostech has one as well, but I have not seen the price for it yet.

  • Markbo

    How much $ !?!?

    • Twilight sparkle

      I bought one a month ago, they’re priced about $250ish

      (If you order through a lgs you might get a better deal, I payed about $215)

  • Twilight sparkle

    What’s up with the iron sights???

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Is the target customer aiming anyhow?

      I’m also curious as to why their is a 1/4″ gap in the receiver to rail.

      • SP mclaughlin

        Perfect sight radius…..

      • Twilight sparkle

        The target audience probably isn’t but there’s plenty of people who’ve made “bump saws” which actually kinda work, but most people who buy stuff like this aren’t concerned too much with aiming… of course they also wouldn’t want to pay the retail price for this thing.

        I didn’t even notice the rail… I bet one of the slide fire guys is probably an “expert” at “building”

  • Hensley Beuron Garlington

    Improving the designs hopefully gearing up for supporting the new M249S!
    I wonder how these would pair with those triggers that allow us to release shots every pull and release of the trigger? I’d imagine that mostly, it would be fail as the rate of fire might be too fast to reliably complete firing cycles, but I’m just curious.

    • For the price of the M249s, you could buy a transferable machine gun.

      • Hensley Beuron Garlington

        Very true. But they still aren’t neutered FN M249 Saws.

  • USMC03Vet

    What is happening with that AK below? Slidefire for AKM?
