American Spirit Arms Side Charging Upper Receiver – This receiver was designed as one of the most highly desired options for the AR-15. By relocating the charging action to the side, as opposed to the rear of the receiver, the shooter can maintain a sight position and shooting position while charging the chamber with ammunition. Additionally, the charging handle on our side charger receiver does not reciprocate with the action of the bolt. This provides a much safer operation than the alternative.This Product the Side Charger with modified Bolt Carrier Group will work with the Following Calibers 5.56/.223 and 300 Blackout.
The American Spirit Arms ASA Side Charging Upper Receiver requires a modified bolt carrier. View the ASA Side Charging Upper Receiver Bolt Carrier Modification in a new window.
