Building the Perfect Bump-Fire .22 with Plinker Tactical and Slide Fire

Building the Perfect Bump-Fire .22 with Plinker Tactical and Slide Fire

Looking for tons of gun fun at a fraction of the normal cost? Plinker Tactical's got you covered. Shooting Times editor Joseph von Benedikt hit the range recently with the brand new Plinker Tactical 35-round magazine made especially for the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22, the price tag on a day at the range goes way down. Not only are they well-built and sturdy, but the mags feed flawlessly with a Slide Fire stock. Plinker Tactical also offers a loading assist tool, making reloading the mag a breeze and saving plenty of time.

In addition, Plinker Tactical offers an improved charging handle for the M&P15-22, which allows for ambidextrous charging, plus an extended handle that allows for easier use while shouldering the rifle.

Plinker Tactical 35-Round Magazine

Plinker Tactical\'s .22-caliber magazine is tough, durable, and with a 35-round capacity, offers more shooting than most magazines on the market.

Plinker Tactical Charging Handle

Machined of aluminum and sporting a robust spring under the polished-steel latch, this ambidextrous charging handle by Plinker Tactical is a useful upgrade when compared with the factory part.

Plinker Tactical Load-Assist

Installing 35 little .22 cartridges in a magazine takes a lot longer than shooting them. The $8 load-assist tool makes it considerably easier and saves wear on your thumbs.

Smith & Wesson M&P15-22

Plinker Tactical\'s products are made especially with the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 in mind, seen here fitted with a Slide Fire stock and CMC trigger.

Slide Fire CMC Trigger

Shooting Times editor tested the M&P15-22 with triggers from several of his favorite companies, but found the setup worked best with Slide Fire\'s CMC trigger.

Slide Fire SSAR-15 OGR Stock

Designed for ARs with a carbine-style buffer tube, Slide Fire\'s SSAR-15 OGR stock easily installs on most ARs with no tools required and no permanent changes to the rifle, allowing for extreme low-recoil, high-speed shooting.
