I’m loving my new 458 Socom build
Granted, my budget builds are not for everyone, but damn, Bear Creek Arsenal and Anderson Manufacturing sure do make some high quality affordable uppers and lowers, and I’m thankful I chose them both for this build.
Holosun never disappoints and the HS510C is no exception. I see why it is their best selling optic as this thing is a true blessing with how I like to shoot.
Mission First Tactical fits this build perfectly. Even with the mighty thump the 458 brings, the minimalist stock feels great on the shoulder. The hand grip is tight, and fits me like a glove.
Bravo Company USA has really caught my eye recently. I’m loving their rail panels that fit perfectly on my low profile hand guards, even with the big thick barrel and gas block of the 458 where others didn’t quite fit. I’m addicted to the Mod 3 Vertical Grip, angled forward for extra leverage. Good stuff at a great price.
Strike Industries makes all kinds of fun stuff. I’m a big fan of their rail panels, QD sling mounts and their awesome dust covers.
Magpul is also a favorite, although I don’t have much on this build. Great pop-up sights, and of course my fav ranger plates on the mags.
CA Legal Mags has really come through for us restricted Californians.
Deflector Brake makes a neat little product that drops your brass in a nice pile down by your feet. A feature I didn’t really care much about until I learned the value of collecting your brass for reloading. Simple but affective tool indeed.
Many of these accessory manufacturers also make uppers, lowers and barrels, but are usually way out of my price range. Judging from the craftsmanship I’ve seen in these fun accessories, I’m sure the value of their complete firearms are well worth the price. Hopefully someday I will find out first hand.
