American Spirit Arms ASA Side Charging Upper Receiver

 

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.

ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER

American Spirit Arms may not have produced the first side charging AR-15 but they certainly are the first to bring the design to main stream shooters.  I have been pretty anxious to build an upper based around the  ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER for a few reasons. First off I have enough AR-15 rifles that it’s difficult to be creative and not redundant. Additionally I am left handed and the ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER undoubtedly favors southpaws like myself. That said there is actually a more significant reason. I was born with birth defects that affect my hands, particularly my right hand. While the Mil-spec AR-15 is ambidextrous the forward position of the charging handle on the ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER is much more comfortable for me. If you cant tell already this upper being turned into a rifle is a pretty exciting prospect. I purchased my ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER and special bolt carrier from Brownells  of course. While the entire project has not been thought through a project will be forth coming. Stay tuned.
