Small grab surface

by -

The actual grab surface is fairly short, shorter than I expected. But I may just be spoiled with the charging handle I have on my other upper. It's also quite smooth so I need to make sure I have a good hold on it before pulling to load the next round. Overall good for it's value. For less than $10 this does the job.

Works Well/Would Recommend

by -

I used two of these on recent pistol builds. They fit and function well on both Anderson and Aero uppers with Toolcraft BCG's. I especially like these on pistol builds where a large handle/release would be a possible snag on clothes or gear.

Gets the job done

Great charging handle for a great price. I saw a few other reviews talking about a bump on the top of it causing issues. Mine was rubbing on the top of the inside of the upper receiver, but I just put some CLP oil on it and don't have any issues. Very satisfied

Exactly what I expected.

Its a charging handle. Its aluminum. Its a fair price.

Be careful

For some reason, my didn't fit correctly in my Aero Precision M4E1 upper. I had to use some force to get it in. I ended up having to file down the teeth part of the charging handle.
