    Side Charging AR upper

    Has anyone had experince with these? Looks like a great idea just wondering if the handle recpricates and if I can use a standard ar bolt carrier. They are a bit pricy $300 but it might be worth it. *Note check out the selector markings on the spikes tactical lower! lol

    Who makes the upper? Spikes?

    American Spirit Arms. Made for the AR15 and AR10. I had two ASA lowers I bought quite a few years back, but no experience with these uppers.

    The charging handle doesn't fold, but you can get an ambi charger.

    LWRC has these on the REPR IIRC.....and they are debating doing it for the 5.56/6.8 series of rifles too from what I've read.

    It looks as if the lar grizzly side charging handle is reciprocating. I would prefer a non reciprocating operating system. SDduc, have you used these uppers before? They look like Alexander arms side charger.

    Nope. Just experience with the lowers. No problems with fit or finish.

    I heard a few good things about ASA since their resurrection. I want to use one of their side chargers for a future AR built. Addax is using their uppers on some side charging piston builds.
