    Now that makes perfect sense!! I wonder how long till you can buy an upper with that feature in the housing?
    Look twice, shoot once.

    Neck: there are many side charger uppers already available. You can buy an AR Stoner bare Upper Receiver for about $200 from Midway.

    My problem is with the SCR the bolt carrier is different than a standard AR Bolt Carrier so the Stoner Upper won't work.

    This device works on any AR upper, and you can move it from gun to gun in a couple of minutes.. it is also only $135! and it is very well made!

    I'm reminded of a guy who wanted to shoot reduced cast boolit loads in his M1 Garand. I think he just got a spare gas plug and drilled it out to vent off the gas. The M1 could then be cycled manually with the operating handle. For reasons cited earlier (broken charge handle, etc) I guess this wouldn't work out with an AR.
    Sorry if this is a bit off topic.

    Best Regards,
    Jim

    Since Ruger is now selling a version of the American Rifle that accepts standard AR mags, it may end up being cheaper to just snag one of those, either in a Boyd's stock or a MDT chassis.

    Ruger keeps releasing stuff I wish they'd offered 10 years ago, I don't think I'd own a non-Ruger gun if they had.
