Looking to build a SOCOM and I'm looking for a good 16" barrel and bolt. Any suggestions?
Tony is reason the 458 Socom is with us today and Blackhole uses a reverse engineered reamer.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.
