I made one from a knoxx axiom stock...just for kicks...worked okay..."re-purposed" that stock shortly after trying it out one time...

I actually bought that stock intending to modify it including cutting the grip handle off...so it was actually convenient to try the slide fire in the process...

IMO...if you already have a slide fire for another gun you are the leading expert on the subject but it is well proven that you CAN do it with a 10/22...

At this point in time...I cannot see wasting ammo with it...they are NOT accurate or reliable...just fun for a few minutes then it's not worth having after that imo...others may disagree...

Yes, I have one for my AR-15. The first couple of times I used it, not only did I not hit what I was aiming at, it was hard to tell what I did hit!

But with practice (aka spending a lot of money on ammo), I was able to get a pretty good grouping at 100 yards - meaning I got most of my shots into a 12"x12" target. I can go sub 2 moa with the same rifle at 100 yards in semi-auto mode.

I would think the 10/22 would be easier to handle with a Slidefire. My only 10/22 is a TD. If I had a carbine, I'd be more likely to try it.

Yes, it wastes ammo and has no real function - other than they're a whole lotta fun!

PS - thanks for the video. I was just going to go looking on YouTube for such a video.

Here's a video I just found using a Slidefire on a 10/22.

I tried one on a 10 22. It was fun, easy to handle. Did I want one afterwards, no. Was it fun for a day on the range, yes.

It just seemed silly to waste all that hard to find ammo on a 3 second hahaha. But if I had .22 tracers. The slide fire would be the way to waste them!


To each their own

Yep I agree with both you and smiles completely...if money is no object they are fun...

That is very good shooting at 100 yards with an auto imo...slide fire even more challenging for reasons obvious to anyone whose done it...

However...I would also say that your sub 2moa AR is far more accurate than a factory 10/22 (don't know that is what you have just saying...)

I am sure you can do as well as matt2099...he has lots of vids...he has put a lot into it as you can tell...

As for accuracy...mine was literally spraying...I was 'aiming' (if you want to call it that) at one of those spinner/reset stands with 2" targets at about 40 yards...didn't spin a single one of them...it did make a bunch of chatter...desert floor so I could see where they were hitting more or less w/o tracers...this was last year sometime in the fall...and that is with a match barrel, trigger work, and red dot...

Went thru about 150 rounds (I think)...it would run a 10rd dry...a 25rd maybe half or better and then it would stovepipe...yes refinements plus practice would make it run much better...however, I just wanted to do it like smiles said...one time just because it was in front of my...I literally set it up in minutes...just enough to get the feel of it...

If you have a light pull trigger you don't need to do anything more than release the lock on the butt stock and have a very light grip to make it run like that...

I am just not into it...

A full auto 10/22 would be another story...however, not worth the hassle or cost of a license imo...

For me...accurate shot placement and practice with true off hand marksmanship is the only reason I am into 22s...fast off hand shooting is a blast with the 10/22 for me but only if I can hit a small target...

It was a fun thing to do once however...!

My sub 2 moa at 100 yards is in semi auto mode. My AR is pretty much stock except for my nickel boron BCG and my EOTech MPO II.

Only other alterations are a better charging handle, fore grip and sling. My barrel is not chromed, which I here is more accurate than a plated one.

I think I was using Federal XM193 when I punched the center out of that target.

Mag dump full (simulated) auto. Last rounds went right.



Semi auto.
