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.

On my behalf a friend recently acquired a Sendra preban stripped AR15 lower. Not much information available on the Sendra hardware other than comments of the anodizing appearing to be purple. True to the comments mine started off purple. My friend who also happens to work in the industry and is an AR15 guy himself would not ship the Sendra as it sat. In a very generous gesture my friend decided to dress up the Sendra.

First off he had the stripped lower coated in GunKote matte black. He then installed a Geissele G2S Trigger, BAD ASS CASS, KNS Anti Rotation Pins, Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard, Magpul MOE+ Grip, Milspec Buffer Tube, H Buffer, Noveske End Plate and a VLTOR IMOD.

This lowered turned out so well I have not yet decided what project to apply it to. Once I have the lower in hand I will post quality images.

Colt LE6940P Rifle. This modular carbine has an articulating link piston (ALP) operating system and offers shooters a highly accurate, lightweight and easy-to-clean AR-platform rifle with an extended lifespan

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Colt Defense LLC, one of the world’s leading designers, developers, and manufacturers of rifles and carbines, has advanced its one-piece monolithic upper receiver to introduce the Colt LE6940P Rifle. This modular carbine has an articulating link piston (ALP) operating system and offers shooters a highly accurate, lightweight and easy-to-clean AR-platform rifle with an extended lifespan.”The new LE6940P puts to use a new, improved version of a piston system that Colt originally pioneered for the US Army,” said David Ridley, Vice President of Colt Defense LLC, “Now, any civilian shooter or law enforcement professional has the opportunity to shoot using this superior piston-operated AR.”

The advanced piston carbine (APC) is a lightweight, highly accurate alternative to the traditional direct gas impingement system found in most ARs. The Colt LE6940P Rifle utilizes a unique articulating link piston (ALP) operating system, which reduces inherent stress in the piston stroke by allowing for deflection and thermal expansion. As a result, shooters are offered a highly accurate firing experience and the weapon’s lifespan is extended.

Measuring 35 inches with the stock extended and weighing just over six and a half pounds, the LE6940P was designed to be lightweight to reduce shooter fatigue. A one-piece monolithic upper receiver gives ease in assembling parts, disassembling and cleaning. The 5.56mm, magazine-fed carbine has a semi-automatic rate of fire with 700 to 950 rounds per minute. Chambered in .223 Rem (5.56 x 45 NATO), this rifle has an effective range distance of 600 meters.

A continuous rail from the rear of the upper receiver to the front sight translates to unmatched repeatability for mounting optical systems, not found with aftermarket rail systems. In order to enhance the shooters’ versatility in both close quarters and long range, Colt has also incorporated a back up iron sight (BUIS) and a folding front sight.

“The LE6940P exemplifies Colt’s continued dedication to innovation,” said Ridley, “Colt was the first to put a piston system in an AR, and we have continued to improve on that system since, giving shooters an unmatched edge.”
