what "Deals"??

#1 Post by Grizz » Sun Dec 01, 2019 12:33 pm

I trolled around for some kind of deal on a 458 Socum OR a 50 Beo upper. There are only two reputeable manufacturers, and there are no deals. I was going to treat myself to whichever one capitulated.

there is an outfit giving Texas a bad rep, with CHEAP firearms, that I can't bring myself to buy..... I could try the parts route and build from spare parts, but that's expensive too. Tromix has the world's worst website for trying to determine costs, and no discounts that I could find. So, still waiting for a recession, I guess.

Yeah, I know. The Scots-Irish in me, nor the Scandi part for that matter, can cough up a grand for another upper... yet. lol LOL

I don't know that I got a 'deal' on it, but I bought my 50 Beowulf upper from Cabela's a few years back, and LOVE it.

I'm sure the other 45 caliber uppers are sweet, too, but there isn't any of them that has anything about it that is better than the Beowulf 50 caliber.

Just get it and have fun....maybe you spend $30 more than an 'on sale' version, but life it too short to get mired in that kind of nonsense.

You'll have way more fun than if you'd spent that $30 price difference on some dinner-and-movie... :D

HEY THANKS YOU ARM TWISTING ENABLERS . . .
BCA AR-15 Complete Side Charging Upper Assembly, 16” 4150 Parkerized Heavy Barrel, 12.7 x 42 Caliber (.50 Cal), Carbine Length Gas System, 1:20 Twist w/ 15” MLOK Split Rail
It's a slick side with right side charging handle. Horrible photo on their website. Nice phone answerer.

Now to find some ammo to cycle test. And then to get the brass and dies and bullets and, Oh My!

Here is a decent video of someone shooting this upper. He is a good shot and doesn't whine about recoil. Refreshing.

Yeah, he was even shooting it prone and didn't even comment about recoil. 8)

So far I really like and prefer the side charging handle that I have on a 223 upper...
