Not big enough for .50 Beowulf
by Elliott -
Does not work for 50 beowulf.
<br>From PA: These are not designed to work with .50 Beowulf. These uppers are designed for .458 SOCOM.
Good to Go.

I have built a lot of .458 SOCOMs and wildcats based on the .458 SOCOM so this is not my first rodeo. I usually have my uppers modified by my smith but seeing this upper already modified for less than $50, what the heck, I'd give it a try. The ejection port is just fine so I can only assume the other guy got a standard upper and did not both to follow up with calling PA to get it sorted out. Nobody can fix a problem for which they are not made aware.
<br> The forward assist installed easily, no problem, and the front of the receiver squared up nicely with only a little lapping needed to square it off perfectly. The ejection port cover snaps shut with authority so they did not muck it up by removing too much from the top of the ejection port, as I have seen others do and there is plenty of clearance for the .458 S case to eject unimpeded. I have not experienced any problem with it at all and will order another as the need arises.
This upper is a definate must for your big bore AR build.

Decided to build a 458 Socom, I chose this upper along with the PA barrel, BCG, freefloat grip, and an upper kit it assembled very nicely. I was apprehensive due to the one negative review.... not now. There were some tweaks needed to the barrel and the BCG along with an H3 buffer but then it just wanted to be fed …. this upper worked as it should... will buy again --- got the urge to do a 450 Bushmaster too.

I ordered this 458 Socom stripped upper on sale. I read the one review that said the ejection port would not fit a casing through. When I received mine I hadn’t built my upper yet, so I didn’t have any 458 to try. I do have a 450 Bushmaster and those rounds cleared with room to spare. I have now completed my build and rifle functions perfectly. Thanks Primary for your fast shipping and customer service!
Awesome stripped upper

I ordered this on special sale even though the one review was really negative. I have used Anderson for a lot of builds and never had a problem. The first thing I did was to check the ejection port opening. I have a 450 Bushmaster so I took a round and it fell through with plenty to spare. I received everything today at 1 pm for my 458 socom build, at 6 pm ready to shoot. Now I need to order ammo! Primary shipped so fast it cought by surprise. Maybe the other reviewer was sent a standard upper by mistake. I would tell him to reorder, this thing is awesome. Thanks Primary will add you to my go to vender list😊
May just be the Magazine???
I do not have one of these, but I have a friend that does. This is just additional information that may or may not help. The problem my friend ran into is in the magazines that are available. They must be single stack and modified to handle this round. I'm not sure what he did....I wish I had paid more attention. I never thought about owning a 458 SOCOM until I got to shoot his. Just saying.
One star for one shot.

So I guess I'm first here. Well no need to be second since the "Oversized ejection port for .458 SOCOM" doesn't even fit a casing through it. <br>http://prntscr.com/ill7n5<br>I guess if you want a single shot it works, but there are better options out there.
