Re: My thoughts on my Olympic Arms 22-250 UMAR

I just ordered a UMAR lower with WSSM mags to use with my 300 OSSM and 243 WSSM Olympic Arms uppers. I like to experiment and will check if the UMAR lower and WSSM mag will also work with 50 Beowulf or 458 Socom cartridges and uppers. It looks like it might. A downside of AR-15's has always been their short magazines. The UMAR gives 0.18 inches more (2.40 total), though only with their special shaped mags. They can shoot standard mags but that doesn't give the extra length.

Re: My thoughts on my Olympic Arms 22-250 UMAR

South Paw shooter ...I too have a new umar 22-250 and yes it is giving me head aches already ..5 rounds are very tight in mag.. seems like the bolt doesn't come back far enough to pick up the next round ..not every time but enough to frustrate ... this is my 1st ar and at a loss as to why .. maybe the filing on rear tabs would help ? a little more description of doing this would be very helpful ( maybe a pic or two ) Thanks , Charlie
