I want to build a 6.5 Grendel upper, and a friend of mine was showing me one he built on a side charging billet upper. I fell in love with it, and want to use a similar one for my build. I found the Alexander Arms billet side charging upper and this looks like a good choice for building a Grendel on, problem is i cant find one. Is there a source online without a 6 month wait?

Eye candy, and the website:

the AA side charger billet upper is made by Mega. John over at rainier arms. has them in stock. But they don't have M4 feed ramps.

Do i need M4 ramps? Ill be most likely using it with a 20" stainless barrel.

Id rather the AA branded version because it comes with the bolt carrier and handle. Id have to order it separately if i go through Rainier.

Why not call up Bill Aexander and have him build you one?

I keep hearing there will be a six month wait. Is this true? If not, i can just order one from AA's website.

True. Does AA make the bolt carriers in the upper receiver sets?

Alexander Arms is now having a sale to celebrate their new website. Lots of uppers and so on on reduced prices. I would most certainly call them and ask. Asking doesn't cost anything, and won't hurt your chances of buying elsewhere if Alexander doesn't give you the answer you want.

You don't have anything to loose..OK, a phone call, but that isn't a big deal...

Re: A source for the Alexander Arms SC Upper?

I just finished building one of the mega machine side charging uppers on my 6.5 grendel. the m4 feed ramps are not needed. the barrel extension that i got has them but it does not interfear with it at all. only problem i am having is i am using the adams arms piston conversion and need to get the new carreier drilled for the side charging handle.
