    I have been hunting with the 458 socom for about 3 years now and I think it is probably one of the best pig killing rds. made. I plan on getting one of Willson Combats 458's this summer so I decided to chop my RRA upper and put it on my dedicated pistol lower. I cut it down to 12.5" and put a rifle length Houge free float on it. I didnt look clean so I lathed out a end cap out of aluminum to close it up. The gun shoots great and the recoil is not as bad at all. I have a Vortex Strick Fire red dot sight on it and it will shoot 4" groups at 100 yards. Thats not bad for a 0 power red dot scope with a 4moa dot.

    That is one secsi pistol grats man. How's the recoil on it?
    Is there much flash or concussion?
    Got any pics of it in action?

    I really like that you did some custom work on it to clean up the muzzle! Looks awesome like a suppressor! Great job man! :D

    Thanks guys. Recoil is not bad at all. Noise is not bad either, but the flash is big.:D
