Looking to build a SOCOM and I'm looking for a good 16" barrel and bolt. Any suggestions?

Tromix seems to be the go-to gang for the .458 goodies.

Is there a spencer on here that sells them?

BlackHoleWeaponry is a sponsor that sells 458 Socom barrels, but I don't know if they use the reverse engineered version or the official Marty (creator) verified/approved version. I know Tromix has gotten the blessing to do the 458 Socom from Marty, so that is why many people go to them (along with their really good prices and service). A lot of manufacturers that did not get the blessing have a chamber that must have some variance, since the barrels sometimes have issues. I personally will be going through Tromix myself in the next couple months, but I've heard good stuff about BHW on other barrels. Some more of the 458 experts can probably guide you better than me.

TROMIX is by far the go to for top quality, cheapest price, fastest shipping, and original true to spec chamber. Black Hole Weaponry and Wilson both use the knock-off reverse engineered PTG chamber which often gives problems with some factory loads, and if their extactor is not properly modified can cause problems. TROMIX uses a custom made extractor that will not cause you any problems.
You order TROMIX items directly from them. LINK

Tony is reason the 458 Socom is with us today and Blackhole uses a reverse engineered reamer.
