-NOTE: Non-reciprocating Charging handle is PRE-ORDER ONLY-

We are just waiting for some hardware to come in before it is officially released. We have enough hardware for 20 handles. The first 20 orders will ship on June 1-2. All orders after the first 20 will ship mid-to-late June when the rest of the hardware arrives.

The BRN-180 line of bufferless upper receivers was designed to mimic the original AR-180/AR-18 with it's right-side offset and reciprocating charging handle. While some may appreciate the period-correct look and function of the charging handle, a lot of people prefer a more modern option. A3 Tactical has come up with various options to meet this demand. 

If you don't mind a reciprocating charging handle but just prefer a nicer handle to grab, we have 2 options available to suit your needs. These are simple 10 minute upgrades.

For those that want a more modern upgrade, we also have a non-reciprocating version of the handle. This unique upgrade features a forward mounted guide rail and handle that does not move with the bolt. Simply replace your charging handle with our steel bolt adapter, mount the guide to your rail, and install your handle. The entire upgrade can be done in 15 minutes.

The high-tolerance bolt adapters are manufactured from 4140 steel. Only the low-profile adapter reciprocates with the bolt. The charging handle itself remains on the guide and stays latched via a tensioned ball detent. All components machined from 7075 aluminum and hard anodized. Your choice of grooved round handle, or finger-notch handle.
