308 SIDE CHARGER - "LR-308 COMPATIBLE"For those that choose to modify their own carrier, this is our
same high quality side charger upper receiver that does not come with
our modified carrier. For customers that already have their own carriers
and need them modified you can have the factory modify your carrier for
$45. Please call in and talk to any of our Sales Representatives for this service.
At American Spirit Arms we're proud to offer our industry-leading
Side Charger Receiver. This receiver was designed as one of the most
highly desired options for the AR Platform. 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.
*Works with Most LR-308 Pattern
Lower. Due to the various different dimensions of the 308 lowers out
there we make NO Guarantee that these uppers will fit any certain
lowers. Please call or email us with any questions you may have.
Spirit Arms .308 Side Charging Upper Receiver WILL NOT function with a standard
bolt catch. A bolt catch with a 45-degree bend is required for reliable
operation of the .308 Side Charging Upper Receiver. Modified bolt catches are
available upon request.”
