Side Charging Handle Upper?
 
after the last range session with about 10 FTF due to ammo my rifle doesn't like I realized how annoying it was to stop everything, let go of my rand hand grip, make sure my face it outta the way and pull the charging handle. slightly inconvenient. so i've been looking at these side charging handle uppers. What do you guys think?
this one seems the best: AR-15 M4 Side Charger Upper Receiver - American Spirit Arms

yeah its expensive!
with that i could start another AR-15 project...
idk what do you guys think?

I use my weak hand to charge my AR. I hook it with my left index finger.
Did a search on you tube for an example, and guess what I found???

Great vid...he manages that rifle like an extension of his own arm.

You can also install an Ambidextrous Charging Handle with oversize handle extensions on either side. That way you can slap it back with your right hand if left shouldered, without reaching under your weapon. :)

I prefer the link above to the first one.
Adding a slot to your ARs solid side seems like a bad Idea to me. I much prefer the RH side version which merely extends the already existing ejection port.
Heres another alternative that is an older design from Olympic Arms.
