I've sent an email to AR Performance this week asking for information on their 800 series bolt and barrel extension but I have heard back from them yet.  Does anyone hear know what they charge for the two items?  And also their opinion about the items themselves if they use them currently.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they only sell them to a VERY select few. I was in your shoes a few months ago, looking to get them for the 358 Yeti project, to no avail.

hmmm, so a hobbist is not their priority list for fulfilling a purchase.  If they won't play, I'll just work towards finding an AR10 to rebarrel to 22-250.

There are other sources coming for these "types" of bolts/extensions.  Not exact copies, but do the same job.  ARP's have a great reputation and hopefully the new line from other sources will be just as good since the ARP's are unobtanium for the most part.

Well, make sure there is a big announcement when the other bolt and extensions are available.  AR10 makers love their receivers when it comes to making your own...

A couple of years ago I talked to a mechanical/industrial engineer who is a good friend and they design high performance parts, tooling and gears. The design is not the issue that is the easy part. The thing is that someone has to make a substantial order to justify all the tooling and programming involved. The design I showed to him has trapezoid, larger and stronger lugs and he said that it should be very strong w/o even getting into the actual making of the prototype. The issue again is who is going to order 300-400 bolts and extensions. Those will take for ever to sell. Or maybe someone can make less and pass the expense to the buyers in smaller quantities. 
This is the same problem with any specialty parts, and bolts are critical due to the metals and treatment needed.
So far the 800 are the best in the market, specially because they are a reality and well tested. The problem is the lack of availability.

Has anyone found a substitute for the 800 bolts?
I talked to ARP and no luck. Apparently they have a legal issue that needs to be resolved before they can make more (that's what they told me anyway.)

An outfit called Kramer Defense has filed a patent for AR bolts that has thrown a box of rocks into the machinery.  Its a bogus patent, but it has to go through the courts to get it rescinded.
