The best way to make .458 SOCOM more fun is to make it select-fire (VIDEOS)

While the .458 is a neat round to begin with, it can get “semi-religious” when coupling it to a select-fire lower and adding a target-rich environment.

The rifle is a set-up from Faxon that includes one of their Big Bore barrels with a huge muzzle device and a forward vert grip. The gun made the rounds at the recent IV8888 shoot in Georgia and Eric takes it for a test drive in the above video.

To slow it down a bit, firearms attorney Adam Kraut runs what appears to be the same hardware captured by a high-speed camera.
