Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Whelp, I wants new toys, but I ain’ts gots the scratch, so’s time to clear out the collection methinks.
Up on Ye Olde Chopping Blocke is going to be the .458 Socom Retardation Ele-nah-phant Gun.
Now, this ‘un here isn’t the complete weapon. Just the upper, the mags, all my remaining ammo, and reloading dies, along with the primers and boolits.
Literally a pretty good ‘starter pack’

Yeah.. Pictures here:
now on that one, blurry as it is, you can see the half-moon cut-out for allowing thr .458 to feed properly… yeah, you can use standard mags, but the rounds tend to get hung up on feeding with regular mags….
Factory ammo… rare’nfuck right now… try $4 a round…
So yeah, just in my money tied up in it was $1400 with ALL the ephemera.
Email me @ rakkasan101st@protonmail if you want to plead yer case….
Part of the reason I’m sliding away from it is TBH, is the cost, the feeding, the lack of being able to practice, and the feed issues. It seems to jam quite a bit… not sure why, but hey, tis-whut-tis.. rather put that out to y’all. I want to be upfront w/y’all, my loyal readers here. Fucking .458 is a beast and while I like it, I’d rather get something else to work on now that I’m over the project.
Let me know, as otherwise GunBroker is getting it.
