Not a lot of AR-styled clones are side-charged. I have a JP Enterprises PCS-12 which has this functionality, and the pictured REPR MKII-SC (Side-Charge) from LWRCI is another example.

    As you may have guessed, the new side-charged REPR is the subject of Today’s Photo here at TFB.

    Basically, there are no changes on the specifications from LWRCI’s current REPR MK II Line.

    According to LWRCI, consumers were looking for the non-reciprocating side charge feature from the REPR MK, and here it is.

    Furthermore, the REPR MKII line up has expanded to include 6.5 Creedmoor and an Elite series featuring Proof Research Steel and Carbon Fiber barrel upgrades. Sounds like a dream to me.

    LWRCI are designed, machined and assembled in Cambridge, Maryland.

    What do you say? Have you tried side-charging on an AR and how did you like it?
