Default Bolt action

Could anyone point me in the direction of either a bolt action AR15 upper or a bolt action that accepts AR15 accessories? A solid hunting caliber would also be preferred. I'm getting stationed in Alaska.

I'm with Mountainman,What the hell!
Why would you want a semi-auto platform to be a bolt action? And,if you're going to be hunting in Alaska,the smallest rifle caliber I'd want is a 30/06. It won't fit in an AR platform,Although there is a company that makes long action AR10 style platform weapons,but they start off around $5000.00,and go up depending on what you want,but it wouldn't be a bolt action.
Safety Harbor does make a 50BMG upper for a AR15 lower that is a bolt action,but I don't think you would like to hunt with the big 50!

umm, interesting question.

you can't just buy a bolt action rifle?

im curious as to what accessries you are thinking of.

with a drill and the proper screws you could mount a picatinny rail on just about any wooden stock.

Vagabomb,

The question kind of threw me. I have a friend that is a custom AR Builder and does or can build a single shot AR with a Bolt type charging handle on the left side of the receiver and it is single shot operation not semi-auto. Can't imagine anyone wanting anything like this in Alaska. Semi-Auto I think would be prefered. But the snag there is you are going to Alaska and the only caliber they come in is 5.56. I like the others can not imagine going to Alaska and hunting with anything less than 308 (7.62X51) There are several good rifles manufactured in that group. Rock River Arms, Remington, Armalite, DPMS and others. Also I have a 458 SOCOM that is 45 Cal. And I know of no quality bolt action rifle that takes AR-15 Accessories? Maybe you can clarify the request a little clearer for us. What are you going to hunt with it?

Those look good. Not sure I can get the right caliber. I want something that can accept the stocks, handguards etc. My uncle has a lot of spare parts he's willing to part with wholesale. Some really nice ones too. Bolt action just seems a hell of a lot more appropriate for the situation.
