Anderson Manufacturing 6061 Aluminum Charging Handle
You can't build an AR-15 without a charging handle, and this 6061 forged aluminum charging handle from Anderson Manufacturing is a good choice for a basic build. It is precision CNC machined and hardcoat Type III anodized black. Nothing fancy here, just a well-made part that will deliver reliable service, and economical enough to keep one on hand in your spare parts kit.

Does what you need it to do.

It does the job for the price! I’m a fan of Anderson manufacturing lowers so figured give their charge handle a go.
Had to modify to work properly
by Rielly -
It's alright. Right above the hole for the gas tube on the top there was a bump that actually would catch, so it was hard to actually chamber a round. Took a little grinder to it and it works fine. Not too happy about needing to modify it out of the package. But you get what you play for I guess
Basic but effective

Cheap and functional. Was building an iron sight upper and wanted something simple / light / affordable. Finish is fine. Works as expected.
Nice Affordable Charging Handle

Nice mil-spec charging handle for a great price. Mine has performed perfectly with a psa bcg in a pistol upper. Very affordable and are a steal when on sale. Will buy more. As always PA customer service and fast shipping is excellent.

Using a PSA premium BCG my charging handle failed to load the weapon due to it being smashed against the inner top part of my upper receiver. Not impressed.
As expected, nothing fancy but does the job.

As expected, nothing fancy but does the job. For a budget build these are great especially when you find them on sale.
