    Default AR15 with AR10 charging handle?

    I was wondering if anyone ever made an AR15 upper with the early/original AR10 style charging handle. That's the "trigger in the carry handle" setup, not the T-pull setup the new "AR10" rifles use.

    I always kind of liked the original AR10 setup; it was ambidextrous, provided a measure of "forward assist" if you needed it, and was tucked up out of the way.

    Didn't "Armalite" make some back in the 90's, or was that only with their ar10's?

    The earlied Dutch AR10's and the early US-made AR10s has the nice trigger charging handle but there was no forward assist capability. That FWD assist came with the later AR10's made for the Portuguese contract. The AR15's with the trigger charging handle and the retro 1990's AR10 have no FWD assist capability.
