    I have a 3 position gas block my 300 whisper, I can turn the gas off to make it hollywood quiet. Then I have to jack the charging hadle to operate the rifle. Kinda like a straight pull bolt action, I have thought many times about making it a side charger.

    That I can see, but now your talking a very speacialized system that is having this done for reasons other than conveniance. I just dont want anyone walking away thinking this type of mod does anything other than add a conveniace over some type of functional advantage.

    I've never played with a side charger but I would assume that you could all but eliminate the gas/carbon/lube etc that normally blows back into your face when running a canned AR.

    Negative.

    The side charging handle does nothing for this. The gas tube and carrier key all act the same in a side charger so you will still have the same carbon build up and gas blow back as a traditionaly charged Gas Operated AR
