i think you will have to have a custom barrel made and then install it into an upper. thats probably the cheapest way. or have someone custom make you an upper. i dont think anyone stocks them

I like the caliber. I would also like one in 7 tcu. I have shot a lot of 7 tcu and know that is a good caliber.

Yes and the clips alone cost 45.00. That is pretty ridiculous. A 7tcu will feed in a standard clip and probably be a better caliber for an AR.

6.5 grendel is also a VERY good round but probably the same mag issue

Um....I would think that $45 per mag is WAY cheaper than having a custom barrel made. One-off production ain't cheep!

But good luck!

Ummm... You can buy CProducts magazines for the 6.8SPC or 6.5 Grendel for $15. I'm not sure where you're seeing them for $45, but they'd better be gold plated for that much money!

7 TCU:

Thompson/Center Ugalde - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Thompson/Center Ugalde, or TCU family of wildcat cartridges was developed by Wes Ugalde of Fallon, Nevada, by necking up .223 Remington brass to accept larger bullets. The cartridges were developed for the Thompson Center Arms Contender single shot pistol, and are widely used in handgun metallic silhouette competition and handgun hunting
I've often wondered why the TCU calibers were never chambered in AR's and Mini 14's.

It's set up for short barreled handguns and would work just fine in 14" M4 carbines.

It's got heavier bullets than the 5.56, gives almost the power of the 6.8 and will feed from standard 5.56 magazines.

Having a barrel made shouldn't be much more expensive than getting a 6.8 or 6.5 barrel.
