I've heard nothing but good stuff about Teppojutsu (spelling?) and a big bore AR is in my future. Can't wait to see the build.

I am going to call him to get things started... I will tell him COLD....
just from speaking to him once sold me on him building it... like talking to Constructor or TimW about thier xtreme 6.8 upper...

I had to ask myself... if I wouldnt take an RRA in 6.8 then why the hell would I do it for the .458.... my answer= MARTY

Any real gunsmith worth his salt should be able to turn one of those blanks into a top end barrel. Any of the barrel makers you mentioned will completely profile the barrel for you and the smith would simply chamber and install the barrel extension. Actually some will even do that for you as well. With that said you can't go wrong with Marty. I have heard only good things about him and in this field thats a hard rep to keep.

A parkerized chromoly barrel is 400.00(350.00 without)
An ss barrel is 475.00...

the bolt is 95.00 plus any upgrades

I am building it exactly the same as my 6.8 althoug I am going to use a really evil looking brake and not the same 5c2 ....

how would the parkerizing hold up as opposed to baked on krylon or duracoat ???? its an extra 50.00 and the krylon is 4.50 :D

I want one, though I dont really know why :D (I do have an excuse for one though, could be the ultimate backup/guide type gun but with a modern twist) but darn ammo is expensive for it....

For $50 you could dura coat the whole upper or gun.You seem todo good work yourself I say go without and take care for it yourself only because I have seen your first attempt. :wink: That also allows you to choose the color. That shade LWRC uses woudl look sharp on that kind of gun if you went solid.

You need to ask where he is getting his blanks from. As that is the cost for a finsihed true match barrel.Not saying its not jsut that you need to confirm its something in the PacNor, Douglas, Lothar range

Via email this morning... Marty confirmed a 6 month wait on parts (barrel+bolt).... I could get an RRA now... but... the wait gives me time to secure all the upper parts I want to use and secure ammo and mags before I have to fork the rest over for the end product... maybe I can come up on a blank and have him do the work... subtract the parkerizing and coat it myself...

a 6 month wait can be good or bad.... I dont like it... so of course.... I need a couple more plans...

thanks Tim... any input will be entertained and tested...
