View Full Version : 458 SOCOM Assembled

After a few months of getting everything together I finally finished my 458 SOCOM assembly today.

Built from an Aero Percision stripped lower and a pre-built RRA mid-length upper. After recommendations from other calgunners I added the ACE Skeleton stock and buffer assembly along with an RRA deluxe grip. I then added the RRA muzzle brake in place of a flash hider. That with the 2 inch rubber pad on the stock ought to take care of any recoil issues! On top I've got a knock-off version of the Burris P.E.P.R. scope mount (same thing, solid aluminum and designed for high-recoil, half the price)...and the Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40. This should be perfect for my upcoming hog hunt! And any other big game for that matter.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for any tips they may have given me! Thanks!http://i.imgur.com/Rnjn8.jpg

What's up with that puny little 3-4rd magazine?

Awfully high mag scope for that rifle IMO.

Ill stick with 45/70...the Original .458 :)

We don't need no stinking semi autos. Six in the tube and one in the chamber!

It aint the size that matters... :D

I actually have a couple 30rnd troy battle-mags that I'll be trying. Should hold 10 rounds of 458 perfectly. I heard so-so reviews on the PMAGS but I haven't heard many reviews from anyone who's used battle-mags. Worse comes to worse, I'll stick with the mini mag. Holds 4 rounds of 458. I won't need anymore than 4 once i get it zeroed in. But overkill is underrated! :cool:

I was looking at similar scopes. But a calgunner was selling the Nikon used for a price I couldn't resist! I would agree that anything more would be overkill though.

Only problem that I would see with plastic mags is the internal dimensions are usually designed for a double-stack column of .223/5.56. This is why the PMAG's don't work well.

You may want to just pick up some USGI aluminum 30rd'ers (legally 10rd mags for .458socom).

But keep us updated about the Troy Battle-Mags. I'm curious too how well they work.

$3 if you don't reload.

If you reload, .458 socom can be shot for WELL under a dollar a round.
