Someone was talking at a local gunstore about reading an acticle in a recent gun related magazine that had uppers in 44 magnum as well as several other calibers. Did anyone read this anywhere? Can someone direct me to a web site that has info on such uppers?

[url]www.tromix.com[/url] and will these take standard mags or do they require special mags?

My 50ae upper from tony takes a standard mag with a new follower. Works great and never a jam or failure to feed.

Which gun magazine was this in? According to Tony, besides the one he gave to his dad, I'm the only one who ordered a .44 Mag upper. It uses the body of a regular 20 rnd. magazine with a Desert Eagle 8 rounder stuffed inside it. Dalphon resells Olympic arms uppers in .40, 10mm, and 45 ACP. The 50AE upper listed on their site is made by Tromix (hence the price difference). I tried contacting Dalphon for almost a week. No one ever answered the phone, returned my messages, or wrote back my emails.

hmm what else does one need for a pistol caliber upper? well other than the upper itself.

You shouldn't need anything else beyond spare magazines. The assembly should include an appropriate bolt/bolt carrier and magazine well insert if applicable.

Thanks, I guess I will deal directly with Oly. Considering a .40, do the converted grease gun mags function well? Know of any 'smiths that do these? $65 seems kind of steep for welding a piece of metal onto a cheap grease gun mag.
