Finding a .458 socom barrel at a decent price is proving a hard thing at the moment. 


barrell comes with the bolt & muzzle brake cheapest I've seen and made in the U.S by faxon for brownell  I believe. Just make sure you get the .875" OD gas block.

I have been fascinated with the .458 Socom, who doesn’t like shooting a thumper. And I bet it is really fun to put some rounds down range. As far as setup I would try to keep it as lightweight as possible with prob 16” barrel and low zoom scout type scope or similar. As far as color it depends, I prefer flat colors and some type of camo pattern if you plan to hunt a lot with it. Whereas if you just want to take it to the range a few times could leave black or a theme paint would be cool.
