I see the Spike's side-charging upper occasionally. I want a pistol upper for my SBR.

What are pros and cons of this setup?

Thanks

I would probably like to know to.

The very first time I used a side charger it bit the hell out of me.........rack the bolt back......hit the BHO......and that side handle runs right into your hand. I have seen one that sat higher on the receiver than it should.....pin location and boreline off. The picatinny rails were not MIL SPEC. These were ASA/VHM uppers I have experience with. The only advantage side chargers offer is that they look cool.

The standard receiver and charging handle work very well, just not as fancy.
