    Ethics issue. He's more than once offered discounts to people to get them to shill on arfcom, which is what got him banned there. He also used to have a 10 paragraph manifesto on his "about" page, with a bunch of bullshit/personal attacks directed toward arfcom staff. Highly unprofessional, unethical, and generally just an asshole.

    My impression was that his personal grudges were such that he had a vendetta against the 6.5G in general and it seemed like he might be sabotaging the caliber out of spite?

    But then again...what do i know....

    It's pretty freaking legit. Noticeably beefier than normal bolts.
    Similarly, upcoming from Faxon Firearms ---

    Interesting. Just looked at his website and he offers some 6.5 Grendel barrels. If he hates this caliber so much why is he offering barrels chambered for it?

    Lots of folks think that Mark Larue is a dick as well but they buy a metric ton of his kit.

    Am I missing something? Not saying he is a great guy but just curious about all this.

    IMO there's no question as to whether or not he makes good stuff; he does. He's just an asshole

    I don't buy from assholes no matter how good their stuff is.

    Harrison is one of the very few people I've banned here, and I've witnessed his nastiness online and have my own experiences, as well, so I get the animosity.

    Personally, I think most Hollywood actors are morons and assholes — but I admit I still go to the movies now and then. In the same vein, despite my opinion of his professionalism and some business practices, I do admire Beene's push for innovation and thinking outside the box.

    So let's bring this thread back around to the technical aspects of the ARP Superbolt for the sake of the OP, if anyone has photos or reports, or such. Thanks.

    BTW, SNS, that Faxon bolt is currently ONLY for their ARAK-21 but it would be REALLY nice to see Faxon offer an improved 65G bolt — HINT!!! Paging Nathan! Dan Young has recently shown a way to improve 65G bolts, if we could do something similar but with Faxon efficiencies and pricing . . . THEN we'd be cookin' with gas! (And there's always Frank Sabatano's Maxim bolt, which is a very solid 65G bolt.)

    And finally, speaking in the context of Bill Alexander's resignation from Alexander Arms, we can't overlook that he, yet again, pioneered clever engineering improvements to the standard AR15 bolt to make it better suited to .50 Beowulf/6.5 Grendel. You guys enjoy all those 9310 bolts out there in the industry these days? Bill was the one who pioneered use of that steel — properly heat treated — as well. We all owe him a debt of gratitude.
