Sorry :D

I am blaming FJ so feel free to add on the blame!


Hey, I was a late adopter of the big bores. It took me a while to warm up to super low mag capacity, but for hunting it's a non-issue.

My source has a new upper, special for ejection port size, complete BCG with charge handle, two complete bolt heads, 16" barrel, long quad rail, carbine length gas system, for $555 NEW.

Is this a fair price?
Seems ok for me, but asking.

Need to source brass and dies now.

Depends on quality of the parts. The ejection port milling takes all of 10 minutes. Bolt's need a proper ejector and extractor, and even Brownells didn't get those right on theirs. Chamber dimensions on certain barrels are off enough to be a problem on properly sized brass.
