AR 15 to 458 Socom


I recently saw some guys online talking about converting their AR 15s to 458 socoms. I’m not sure what that means, but I’m sure I’m just missing a few things. Can someone please help me understand this statement? Also how does round conversion work? I know this is the kind of thing you learn over years in the game, but maybe one of you can help me.

Dude. this is an AR-15 forum and you don't know that conversions are possible? conversions can only work based on the platform of the AR-15 receivers. Sometimes its as simple as switching the barrel to the desired caliber, other times you will need a receiver set and kit that are made specifically for the kind of rounds you want to shoot.

They most likely arent conveting anything, but buying the whole gun or whatever to build a completely new one.
