It isn't the same. Slide fire stocks create a huge problem with accuracy.
#630 - there's still a max fire rate and i think the ar-15 is faster  [+] (5 replies) 02/01/2013 on Will delete profile -- see... +1

Okay, I'll buy that, an M4A1 Carbine, which is a fully automatic military variant of the AR-15 in the picture, cycles around 950 rounds per minute, so we'll peg the AR's cyclic rate somewhere around there. A full scale M14 fires around 800 rounds per minute on fully automatic, again, military grade. Since the Mini 14 is a scaled down M1A (the semi-automatic civilian version of the M14) and fires the same round as the AR, it should theoretically have a slightly higher cyclic rate. Either way, we'll just use the M4's cyclic rate, and the M14's cyclic rate to make this easy. Both weapons fire at a faster rate than is humanly possible to pull the trigger. So essentially, both weapons fire as fast as the operator can pull the trigger.

The M4A1 is not the same as the AR-15. The AR-15 is the semi-auto version, so the fire rate is non existent, it is "how fast you can pull the trigger". But, yes if we were talking about the military versions then yes your point is correct. Personally though I don't care about how fast it shoots, I want to hit my intended target. It is much harder to hit firing in full auto, you may hit something just not as often as aiming.

I didn't say they're the same thing. However, the way in which they operate is nearly identical, barring the fact that the AR lacks a select fire trigger group. Osskari was making the claim that the "maximum" rate of fire on an AR-15 is higher than that of a Mini 14. I used the fully automatic equivalents as examples to demonstrate the maximum cyclic rate of the design, not the weapons themselves. My conclusion was that both designs are capable of a rate of fire that cannot be reproduced with a human trigger finger. Therefore, whatever edge one design has over the other is completely nullified, because the rate of fire is only limited by how fast the shooter can pull the trigger. Lastly, as someone who's qualified on the M16 (sharpshooter, nothing special like expert or hawk-eye) I agree with you wholeheartedly that fully automatic *three-round burst in my case* is useless when trying to lay down accurate fire.

you can also buy a slide fire stock for the ar-15 wich makes it (kinda) ful-auto. then it can shoot about 900 rpm
