I was wondering if it is possible to load an AR15 though the ejector port. Is it also possible to load the magazine though the ejector port as well?
I know this might sound like a dumb question, but I am more formulary with rifles that use fixed magazines and don't know much about the AR series.

Like Red says, Dumbass! On the other hand WHY? Ar15 uses a detachable mag........

you can load the rifle this way, BUT!!!

You must ride the cocking handle down and use the forward ast. If you don't and let the bolt fly closed, you stand a good chance of the rifle slam firing!!!!

Dustin, I'm not sure where you're heading with this question. If you're just curious then, yes, it's possible though very impractical.

May I suggest that you join a range in Kali and start meeting some of the "gun" guys in your area. These guys will show you the ins and outs of AR craft, especially the safety aspects. You'll find the gun crowd very friendly and willing to help.

I really think that you'll find the mag release a whole lot more fun.

I know that if you load a pistol throught the ejection port you will ruin the extractor.

There are single round "sleds" sold to hand load these rifles. Try Funton Armory, they probably have one as will Brownells.

There is NO reason to ride the charging handle closed, the "slam fire problem" was recently solved -- in 1964 (sixty four). Unless you use pistol primers in reloads you're good to go.

NRA High Power long range shooting is often done this way as the very heavy bullets needed to buck the wind at long ranges are too long for the magazines. To get uniform bullet seating requires tripping the bolt release.

Thanks Chuck! I think you covered all the bases.

WRONG!
Having chambered and seen chambered literally tens of thousands of rounds during High Power match slow fire stages and I have yet to see a slam fire.

There is no good reason to load your magazine through the ejection port. Biggest risk is causing the bolt catch to release while your finger is in there and having the bolt come shooting forward on it. OUCH!

One of the ranges I shoot at is single fire only. Most people who own AR-15's load a round in through the ejection port. I seat an empty 10 round mag, and go to town.

I have loaded and fired about 750 rounds that way, and have never had a problem.

I should have included this in my original post. A friend of mine recommended this rifle, although I will end up going with the FAB10, I just could not figure out how to load this rifle – and as far as I could tell, it looked like you would load it thought the ejector. My friends load their SKS though the ejector port when they don’t use strip clips, so I was wondering if you could do the same with this rifle.
