FINALLY !!!! Most of the product is on the web site and ready for order. Uppers and ammo will be on the site for internet orders by end of day Mon. Uppers will be the same price as 6.8, just different order #s. Tks all for your patience.

Order placed.

Ended up with a 16" LW, for velocity sake more than anything.

Now the wait begins...

looks good Bill, was looking forward to it

I just looked and was curious if there were any plans for a shorter barrel? The price is right, but I want something a little shorter for suppressing.

On the 14.7 inch barrel, does the muzzle device come pinned?

If the demand is there yes, a 11.3" fits into our "system" well since this is what we build SBRs on

What gas system would the 11.3" have if you do make them?

Alright, that would work for what I need. I'm sure it'll be a while on this length, but will watch for updates. I was hoping that one would be released with this initial offering since I was ready to buy. Thanks for the reply.

I would imagine a pistol length system for a barrel that short.

I just placed my order for the 16'' heavy and the .458 port door.


Thanks Wilson Combat

How are you producing the bolt?

Reamed out 5.56 or 458S specific?

What treatment/s after bolt face operations?

.

I'm a Marty fan from sway-back... Just asking, sir.

Anxiously awaiting the 11.3" barrels.
Link Posted: 7/1/2012 4:59:09 AM EDT
I see no reason a 11.3" won't work fine with a carbine gas, if we can get 300BLK to work with subs using a carbine gas a 458 should be no problem. We'll whack one of and try it as soon as the machine shop is back up and running. We tore down all our CNCs last Fri and moved them along with several new machines into our new machine shop. Hopefully we'll be back in full production with increased capacity by Wed..

As to the ? about bolts, the initial 100 are slightly modified Bushmaster 450s, if we have capacity we'd like to start making them in-house.

Has anyone noticed our "purpose built" 458 bbl extensions?

Thanks for all the orders, looks like we'll be busy with 458 stuff this week (-:

You mean just the upper receiver? If so complete or stripped?

Link Posted: 7/1/2012 11:36:28 AM EDT
Complete, with the .458 port. I have the Mega Billet one, But think I want a more standard design

Yes, just the upper receiver to go along with the barrel kit. Complete and opened up for the .458 would be a great addition. Just my $0.02.

Yes i noticed it right off the bat, probably because i had to massage my RRA .458 feed ramps so it was the first thing i looked at

looks awesome.

Are there any 458-LW kits left? If so, i would like to order one. I called earlier this morning and the person i talked to wasn't sure if it was available yet. Thanks!

My order shows in process online and when I called yesterday I was told they weren't available yet.

My Card has not been charged, I placed my order on the 30th.

Bill, are you sure they have all shipped?

Edit: Called and was told there is no Eta for delivery that they did not have the kits in yet.

i placed my order for a 16'' heavy kit saturday nite and after seeing your post in the industry fourm and looking at your two links and seeing the striped upper receiver for the .458, i just placed another order.

Any plans for a SBR in 458 SOCOM? I'd buy a 10.5" barreled upper with pistol gas system in a heartbeat from you guys.

I believe it was mentioned that they used .450 bushmaster bolts.

Unless, Bill wants to chime in.
