I went with a Sota 16" 1:10, also got the Sota bolt.

I also have the Sota barrel and bolt , its been good and pretty accurate even with crap steel ammo, I did have some issues with cycling steel cased ammo " stuck cases in the chamber " but I polished out the chamber and its over 700 rds now without a issue. Also I have 3 ASC mags that run flawless

Hey Pure,

Do you still happen to have the specs on that Sota bolt. You had some serious data on that you sent me a while back.

If I remember right the bolt was a 9110 which is far better steel than 8620 but not quite as good as 158C . I would have to dig those up but I think I still have them some where
