    I do love that Idea and having ARs the charging handle can be a bit ridiculous at times.
    But $300 for an upper?! Dang. I'll just pick up an AMBI charger.

    There are lots of side chargers around. I really am not that excited about most of them. They seem to be a solution in search of a problem .

    Other than the quad rail I do like the Adcor Defence

    Weird that the only photo does not show the side with the charging handle on it. Oops! :confused:

    I like the idea of a (left) side charging handle to clear my scope, but was appalled at the cost. :eek:

    My solution was to equip all of my charging handles with a "paddle "type extension on the unlocking toggle. This allows me to actuate the bolt without ever taking my right hand off of the fire control group.;)

    Interesting concept, had opportunities to get a a side charging AR. Never really put the money into one. Though a reciprocating one would be better IMO. That way you don't need the forward assist.

    You don't need a reciprocating charging handle to provide forward-assist capabilities. The LWRCI REPR has a non-reciprocating handle that still acts as a forward-assist by pressing it in.

    The charging handle is designed so that a spring normally keeps it clear of the bolt carrier. When you press it in it engages a notch in the side of the bolt carrier allowing you to push the assembly forward, exactly like a standard forward assist on an AR platform.

    The OA-93 had this style since ''1993''.
    I've had one for years. It is however non-reciprocating.

    They also make a rifle version with folding stock.
