Very nice. I have no objection to steel cases, and at 16c a round for non-steel bullets, that's a great deal. I'd like to see 'em do the same for 5.56x45 and 7.62x51.

IDF Colt 603 clone with an surplus IDF Eyal scope and an IDF silent quick extend sling. Yes, it's pre-ban. The Eyal is quite a nice scope, and is not hard to use without a cheek riser.

We know why we're losing: many judges tend to defer to the state's judgement. That is why the only win/loss that actually matters is at SCOTUS, which at least tends to be less deferential.

Nothing wrong with Del-Ton. They're not a tier 1 manufacturer, but "low cost AR" is necessarily an area where a certain amount of trade-off is necessary.

I'm not sure this idea is going to work, simply because the common definition of HBARs is that they don't step down like that. That is to say, I don't think your build would be considered legal.
