Aero Precision AR-308 Charging Handle
Ratings & Reviews
Almost met expectations
by Brice -
Built a new 6.5 creedmoor using an Aero M5 lower and upper, and thought ising the Aero charging handle would be optimal. Plus, Im not spending crazy money for whats clearly the among the simplest and least expensive part to manufacture.
<br>Needed to Dremel and file the thing to work optimally, but okay, no biggee. Would have preferred an ambi version of it, but wasnt available.
Not milled to spec.

Pretty disappointed. This was not milled properly. Had pretty large, sharp burrs on the bottom and the the whole bottom edge was not straight and flat. I didn't notice at first because it was all anodised over. After filing down the burrs and planing the bottom edge to make it flat and straight it works now, but all of the anodizing is gone from a significant portion. This was a budget build, but I'll probably be looking for a nicer one to replace this now.
Make sure it will fit before buying if you have a GII rifle
Just an FYI, there are 2 different DPMS size charging handles to my knowledge, the newer GII 7.62x51 DPMS rifles require a shorter charging handle, one comes with the rifle of course, however it IS shorter than the NON-GII models. <br>More importantly if you like to change your charging handle out with something stronger, there is only one company that makes an aftermarket handle, and I have no experience with it. if I recall it is "PI industries" or something like that. The VILTOR (or bcm-same thing) unfortunately will not work.
