Where to buy just (AR) barrels and bolts for .458 Socom
« on: December 30, 2010, 03:32:35 PM »

Im looking at build my own various uppers in different configurations of the .458 Socom.

Im assuming to convert to .458 all I need is barrel/gas block and larger bolt...correct?

I would like to build a 16" and a 12.5" version for my SBR.  Where do I find the barrels and bolts?

I think you need to open up the ejection port as well.

Ejection port MUST be enlarged, we can do it for you or send dimensioned drawing

Barrels and bolts, we are pretty much the only game in town...

Hi Marty,

(Someone needs to do something about your "newbie" tag...)  Can you post ejection port drawings here?  I'd love to see what the recommended size is.  Is there a compatible ejection cover, or do you just go with having a gap at the bottom?  I saw in an the ancient Accurate Rifle article the upper didn't have a cover at all.

TIA,

GsT

I will see if I can figure out how to post it.  After enlarging the port, the standard port cover still works and covers the hole... just that the hole underneath is larger...

Now, let's see if I can change my "newbie" status... (always wanted at least one star on my shoulder boards... 5 is a little much... I'll settle for 1 with some bars)
