Slide Fire Teams Up with Colt Competition on CRZ-16 Rifle

Slide Fire

Slide Fire announced the company had teamed up with Colt Competition on a new CRZ-16 variant called the CRZ-16 Bump Fire Rifle. The new version of the gun, as you might expect, is equipped with a Slide Fire SSAR-15 MOD stock that allows the shooter to “…achieve simulated full-auto fire without compromising safety or accuracy.”

The CRZ-16 Bump Fire Rifle has a 16″ 4150 CrMo steel barrel with a 1:8″ twist. It is chambered for the 5.56 NATO cartridge and uses a carbine length gas system. Up front, Colt Competition uses a low profile, fixed gas block. Surrounding the barrel is a 10″ aluminum hand guard with M-LOK attachment points.┬áTo help reduce muzzle rise and felt recoil, the company uses a two chamber muzzle brake.

The SSAR-15 MOD stock has an integral pistol grip. Colt Competition uses an oversized Magpul trigger guard and includes a single 30 round Magpul Pmag with the gun. The trigger is a colt product that is said to be target grade with a six pound pull.

These rifles have a suggested retail price of $1,199. Taking a look at the Colt Competition site, I see that this is the same price as the standard CRZ-16 with an M-4 style stock and pistol grip. While the rifle has a sub-MOA guarantee, don’t expect to make “simulated full-auto” groups of an inch or so at 100+ yards.

  • Markbo

    “The trigger…. is said to be target grade with a six pound pull.”
    The very definition of an Oxymoron.

    • Nebelwerfer

      The same goes for “Slide fire” and “competition” being used in the same sentence.

      • CS

        I think the idea for this gun is a jack of all trades rifle. You can lock the slide fire stock in place for more accurate shooting.

      • Gary Kirk

        Unless you’re competing to see who can waste the most ammo the fastest..

        • Leigh Rich

          Why is shooting ammo a waste. You are not buying if. I am. If I want to waste ammo. WTF is this to you.
          I have a big pick up truck that wastes gas, Bet you ride a bicycle Gary?

    • Joshua

      Depends on how much is in the take up and how crisp the break is.

  • Texas-Roll-Over

    Whoever is in product management at Colt needs to be slapped

    • PK

      For which reason, that this will sell well, or that this will make them decent profit? It may not be to your taste, or mine for that matter, but appealing to the buying public works.

    • CS

      Colt Competition is not managed by Colt. The name is Licensed to Bold Ideas of Texas who designs and markets these guns.

    • dltaylor51

      Yea he needs to be slapped with a big Christmas bonus,I’m glad this new Colt makes you libs pee your pants.

  • Bill

    “Dear ATF……”

    • PK

      I’m sure they’d much rather be selling M4 clones in terms of select-fire capability, but 922(o) puts a damper on such a desire to fulfill that particular market! Second best choice, I suppose.

  • USMC03Vet

    Pew pew pew

  • PK

    While this isn’t to my tastes, I can certainly see the thinking behind such an offering. There is an ever-increasing demand for full-auto (or the close facsimile thereof) and manufacturers are seemingly noticing it more and more, lately. I expect this will sell just fine to people who would otherwise prefer to buy a Colt-made M4, complete with select fire capability.

  • John


    If you want private security/citizens to have full-auto AR-15s, but without the hassle and expense of following U.S. full-auto gun laws, this would seem to be it.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I can’t agree to that. The only people that think bumpfire and echo triggers are “like auto” are people who have no idea what full auto is like, kids and rednecks I’d say.

      • John

        And most security guards.

      • Lee Enfield

        Elitists exist in every hobby. I scratched a 20K$ itch for $100. My smile is even bigger knowing I’m 20K$ richer.

        • JumpIf NotZero

          Except that you didn’t. You found a fairly unreliable way to waste some ammo. When you get time on a real auto, you’ll understand the difference.

          • Lee Enfield

            Oh I understand now …when you dump a mag with a $100 Slidefire you’re wasting ammo but when you dump a mag with a 20K$ full auto you’re now magically making proper use of the ammo.

            Do you mind explaining how that magic happens?

          • Longhaired Redneck

            That’s very easy to explain. Just have a large disposable income.

      • Leigh Rich

        I disagree. I served during Vietnam so i know FA. Many states do not allow machine guns, SBR or AOW. They can not be owned. This is a fun alternative to re-live the old days.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Ok Colt… We’re all here and we love you, but you’ve hit rock bottom…. This is your intervention.

    • Frank Grimes

      Colt Competition is as much Colt as John McCain is a Republican,

      • Llewellyn Franks

        Are you Arizonan or are you a time traveller from the year 2008?

  • Marvin

    What happens when you put a bumpfire stock on an AR with one of those $500 “legal full auto triggers”?

    • Frank Grimes

      Gun turns into a vortex and you get sucked into it.

      • Marvin

        I was gonna say 1 million rounds per parsec. But those fathoms don’t round up to hectors by foot inch. You know what I’m sayin?

  • DanGoodShot

    The slidefire stock has got to be one of the most pointless products out there. There is simply no practical application for it oyher than standing in one spot and pointing in one direction. I know, I had one. It gave me some giggles the first couple of times. Then got boring quick. Can’t run n gun it. Sux when transitioning between targets. If Colt wanted to do some sort of sim “full auto” they would have been better going with a binary trigger system like the Fostech Echo. Much better simulated full auto trigger. I’m not even going near the 6lbs? “match grade” trigger.

    • Leigh Rich

      Dan. Fostech Echo won’t be out till maybe December this year. Bet you saw one on Youtube and you be an expert on them now. Bump Fire stocks are under $100.

  • dltaylor51

    I put a bump fire stock on my AR and it worked perfectly,it goes back to semi auto with the turn of a lever.
