Does anyone make an upper receiver for the Armalite AR-10 platform that has a side charging design? Like JP Rifles LRP-07 or Fulton Armory Titan, but fits on an AR-10 platform. - Phil

Iron ridge is in the process of building ones for DPMS and Armalite platform. Here's their website http://www.ironridgeguns.com/

I heard IronRidge was going to produce an upper, but could not find verifiable info to that effect. I e-mailed IronRidge and asked. Will post what I find out from them.

Dang it, i was at Iron Ridge facility this past week, they are building a beautiful .308 lower at this time and are working on their upper. It never occured to me to ask if their new upper was side charging. I heard the owner telling someone that he sent a lower to be tested with the military and that they said the Iron Ridge unit had yet to be destroyed during testing but that the Knights Armament had not done so well. Iron Ridge has done their homework and got California certified to ship to us......watch these guys for innovations ...they are developing their own trigger too.....

I contacted IronRidge. As you know, they are making AR-10 and DPMS lowers. These are on their site. They will start with DPMS uppers, with and without forward assist. Also a match set upper and lower with side charging handle. I think this will be for DPMS. Production of an AR-10 upper receiver is still a question mark. No promises or estimation on when, if ever, these would be produced.

Phil, is it FAL-style side charging or AKish type side charging?

I was one of the guys at SnipersHide to get in a group buy for the lowers so I was able to speak with one of the guys at Iron Ridge. And he told me himself. He said they're working frantically to get it done, but still isn't sure when it will be done.

I'm not entirely sure, but maybe the LWRC SABR upper will fit an AR10.

No specifics on the kind of side charging design they may go with. Sorry.

I know..been seriously considering it. I can build an equally nice AR-10, even using some JP parts, for considerably less, but I can have the JP LRP-07 quite a bit sooner, if AR-10 parts non-availability remains unchanged for a while. Out of all the off-the-shelf .308 semi-autos (and that I can get in CA), I like the JP the best.
