[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.)
