Hello everyone, first post here.

So basically I live in country where automatic & semi automatic rifles are prohibited for normal citizens. Well technically you can get those firearms if you apply for manufacturer or other higher forms of license. But it takes time, somewhere between 1 to 7 years just to be exact.

I have never fired a semi or full auto rifle & don't even know if I would even like those to begin & hence I don't want to dedicate so much time on achieving something that I may not end up even liking. But here you can buy a smooth bore paradox gun, which basically means its a "shotgun" with a rifled choke. I was thinking of experimenting with a .223 with a 20 inch barrel part of which is going to be smooth bore & part rifled.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me with the rifling twist rate, length of barrel which needs to be rifled & most importantly how different it would be (ballistic wise) compared to a fully rifled 20 inch .223 gun.

Some laws you may want to know.
1) Barrel cannot be shorter than 20 inches.
2) The rifled part needs to be a screw in choke.
3) The rifled part cannot be greater than 50% of the barrel.

Just bought a Del Ton 5.56 Model, and found out that it has no Front Sight Assembly. I did mount a Firefield Red/Green Reflex Sight and have not yet zeroed the weapon in with the new sight, however I want to Put a front Sling Attachment on or put a Front Sight Assembly on and I am not sure how to go about it. I have looked on a few Youtube videos with no success on how to get the sight and sling assembly's that will work, any advice or help would be appreciated.

Is anyone reloading 300 Blackout Subsonic? What have you found to work well?

There is not a lot of selection for bullets and powder so i am wondering if a 168 grain 308 bullet will work

I do not really want to experiment with light projectile subsonic loads but I am not finding any 220 grain projectiles for asle.

I'm wanting to buy/build my first AR-15, I only have a limited budget, say less than $800 US; there's a little wiggle, but not a lot. Am I better off buying a 'cheap' type full built at 500-600 ish, or trying to part set-up a build?... I don't have anything for gunsmithing experience or tools, I'm leaning toward buying a full-built low-price version... and just upgrading pieces and parts, as I learn more and find what I want better. ... I am VERY open to any advice and ideas.

Does anyone have experience with the Tipton Compact Range Vise when using an AR? This looks like a MUCH more economic alternative than the "Lead Sled" range vises or clamps that I have already determined don't work and soak up too much ammunition budget.

Even with 10 round mags we still have the problem of the pistol grip sticking down. I do not find any pictures of this with anything other than a bolt action rifle.

If you have found an economic alternative, please share it.
