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-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.
The Standard AR-15 Side Charge Receiver without
Carrier will work with a multitude of different calibers including
5.56/.233, 300 Blackout, 7.62x39, 6.8, 6.5 etc
When ordering the 9mm you will only see the difference with the Ejection port Size.
Side Charging 308 Uppers are not intended to fit on either the DPMS or
the Armalite 308 AR Platforms. Our 308 Uppers are designed specifically
to fit onto our 308 Lowers. Please contact us with questions.
