    Look around some, I think primary arms had some for stupid cheap right after I bought the two I needed. Other deals are out there as well.

    I've looked around, from the reviews, the "stupid cheap" one is that way for a reason. Others that interest me are 300.00 range, so I wait for Delta team tactical to restock.

    Crap, they are no longer listing the .458!
    Maybe better grab a .450 BM....

    i have a 16" and an 8" barrel from kak industries, but I have yet to shoot either, just finishing my builds and haven't loaded ammo, yet.... They seem very nice. Great finish, and sharp rifling, and clean muzzle threads.

    I've no idea how Bear Creek Arsenal barrels are, but Primary Arms has them for $90 this weekend. Heavy stainless. Also melonite 458 bolt for $90. Prices valid Sep 15 & 16, 2018.

    The reviews, not so good. Most people had to work on them somewhat for proper function. As to accuracy?

    I figure if one is finished properly and functions out of box, chances of better accuracy are also higher. I want a barrel, not another project.

    The KAK barrels reviews, for even the basic 140.00 model were impressive.

    Holy cow! Everyone told me Delta team tactical was dependable, but a little slow on delivery...Not so! Sent 2 day priority, it was delivered today.

    Nice snug fit in the Aero Presision .458 upper....nice and snug. I will true the front of the lower receiver and begin shopping for handguard, buffer weight, gas block, bolt and slap this puppy together.

    I’ve been dealing with Delta Team Tactical for a few years now. They had some problems when they were growing, but they have always made things right. I built a 300 Blackout with one of their kits about three years ago. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get it to function 100%. I ended up sending it back to them. They installed a new barrel and handrail and sent it back at no charge. They have a great customer service.

    Very nice barrel. Chamber has no sharp edges, nicely made. Finish is consistent, very high quality in its appearance. Way better than what I was expecting...WAY better.

    Now if it shoots well, I will be super impressed. They have the bolt, (not entire bolt carrier assembly) on sale for 50 bucks. I think I will get this and use it in an existing carrier.

    Otherwise, the Brownell's bolt and carrier assembly will do.

    I've ordered several times from Delta Team Tactical, and they have some pretty nice prices. One item was not as I expected, and the return process was super easy and smooth. I've been VERY pleased with them. Just my experience.

    Just finished my 50 Beowulf build (ok, 12.7x42) using the Brownells barrel and bolt combo. One snafu... the extractor was very very sharp, really cut into the rims when I test cycled it. So I got to learn how to radius the sides and corners. I knew if i screwed it up i could just buy an extractor, though. 20180921_141410.jpg
