*** SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD ****

I was going to do a .50 build but I've decided to go another route. I'm located in the east bay but I could ship

Bohica Arms MK-II singe shot AR upper chambered in .510dtc
24" fluted barrel

Comes with the modified bolt hold open if you want to use your lower with a different upper.

This upper is brand new and has never been fired. Get this one today instead of dealing with waiting from one from Bohica. The wait from them has now increased to about a year and a half.

$1400

Does this require anything special to be done to the lower i.e different hammer?

All you'll need is a heavier hammer spring. They're about $4 from wolf springs if I remember correctly.

So where does one buy 510 dtc ammo?

its my bday today so I might make this a present to myself, as long as I can feed it properly....

Mrkubota on calguns sells it... other than that I'd just start a thread about it and check. Here's a pm I got from him when I was going to pick some more up:
*do you have any 510?*

No, since the elections I've been swamped with orders clear into March at this point in time.

If you wish to be added to the production list, just let me know what you'd like to reserve. Payment is due the 1st week of the desired production month. (when I order components for the month's run)

2.40ea - .50DTC 690gr ball (mild steel core)
2.80ea - .50DTC 643gr brass solid (range friendly)
3.80ea - .50DTC 647gr Barnes swaged copper HP
4.30ea - .50DTC 750gr AMAX target

All FET and CA taxes included. UPS Shipping is extra.

lee makes dies for the .50 dtc...

I was considering buying this but 2 things came to mind...

I ordered in feb 08 @ 999.00.... he has since changed to the mark 3 and upgraded me for free... something told me that maybe this would be a better route then I saw the price tag...

1600.00 is a bit high... it may sell easier if you lower that price a little....

be carefull, that could be considered price crapping.

$1600 is a fine price. Current pricing on the upper is $1245 plus he is including around $120 worth of ammo. That is over 1450 right there. To pay a $150 "surcharge" to bypass an unknown wait time is not unreasonable.

1600 is a lot, but when you break down the price it's not as bad. And yes, it's a MK2 not 3, but the price everything you get from the company is:

$1295 for a 24" upper in .510
$100 for a fluted barrel
$18 for the modified magazine catch
$120 in ammo
Plus shipping

Considering that comes out to $1533 and you can have this right now instead of in a year + I don't think it's a bad deal. If no one is interested of course I'll lower the price, but right now the price stands.

I have a question.

1) If this fits on an AR lower, You say the only change needed is a hammer spring. How does the ammo feed since the ammo is much larger then the 223 or heck anything else fed thru an AR?

I'm still not getting how exactly the set up is. Do you have any pics with it complete so I can get an idea.

alpalwal
01-26-2009, 2:51 PM
It's a single shot, so it just feeds into the upper.
Here's the link to the bohica gallery

01-26-2009, 2:55 PM
Yes, it fits on an AR lower. It feeds in through the loading/ejection port on the side like a normal single-shot bolt action rifle. It does not magazine load. And the heavy hammer spring is not always needed. Depends on the hardness of the primers on the ammo you are using.

www.bohicaarms.com has pics of the setup.

Guys, I think the 1600 is a hell of a deal, considering I ordered mine in Feb of 08, PAYED for it in July of 08, AND STILL HAVE NOTHING! If I wasnt payed up, I would buy thing thing.

Lee only makes DTC dies to order and they get expensive if you order less than 25 sets. Also, they are an odball thread so, they are designed to only be used in the Lee 50BMG press. CH4D makes several different versions of DTC dies and I know someone (M2 precission) else who might make custom DTC dies. He would charge a fortune (well over $1K for sizing and seating dies) but, his dies are the best. Last I knew, his 50BMG seating die was around $750 alone! If you want to use a standard 50BMG press, Hornady, RSBS, Corbin, Hollywood, etc., go with CH4d dies.

i use the standard RRA 2 stage trigger assembly & spring in my lower & it fires the mr. kubota reloads in my 30" bohica mk. 2 with no problems. only had to dress the side of the hammer per bohica's instructions to allow smooth operation of the bolt.

Does it fit on the lower and cycle properly? I know with some of them people had to whip out the dremel to get the hammer right, among other things.

The only dremeling I've heard of is if you have a 2 stage trigger. Other than that you shouldn't have to do anything. I haven't mounted it on a lower because mine have the standard magazine release still on them.

they pin right onto any lower.
i had to dremel the hammer on my rra 2 stage triger assembly, no big deal, about 15 min & it was perfect.

someone here (besides me since i already have a bohica) needs to buy this upper. they are totally cool!

01-26-2009, 10:43 PM
Yes, you may have to dremel the top of the hammer a bit for the bolt to slide back. Its a real simple job and its mentioned in the instructions. Great upper with good customer support. The MkII are sorta a collectors item since there aren't too many out in the field :D
