Anderson Manufacturing Standard Charging Handle - AR-15
You can't build an AR-15 without a charging handle, and this standard charging handle from Anderson Manufacturing is a good choice for a basic build. It is precision CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum 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.

basic charging handle- dropped right in and works fine. Quick shipping (mailing) from PA.

Charging handles break.Buy a good one, then throw one of these in the bag for a spare.Or get a better latch and run this one... your call. Not the best but it works.

Excellent price for mil spec handle. No flaws
Good Price for a rugged standard Charging handle
Good price, good fit, good finishExcellent shipping and care from Primary Arms
Great Price & Quality
Great charging handle for the money. The more expensive, extended latch designs work great on the scoped rifles, but this is just fine for a RDS setup.

I have many Anderson components, satisfied with all.
Good Quality at a Good Price
It is a basic charging handle that functions as expected. Primary Arms shipping and service is the best I have experienced.
Plain Charging Handle
It's just a plain regular charging handle, nothing fancy, just what I ordered.PA has become my "go-to" place.
A nicely finished standard charging handle.

Not much to really say about it. It's obviously a quality charging handle and I would say it's the equal to a standard charging handle from any of the other quality manufacturers. This is a great, cheap upgrade for those of you with a commercial AR with a flimsy 6061 charging handle.My only issue was upon initial inspection I noticed the roll pin was sticking up. Just for kicks I checked and it would not go into the upper this way. Seated the roll pin and all was good. Relatively minor issue, but it does suggest Anderson needs to pay a little more attention to detail.
No Frills, Good Quality

Not much to say but the fit and finish is good. It functioned as expected. If you're needing a standard CH for budget build consider this one.

Nothing too fancy, good quality at fair price!
Anderson charging handles
by walter tanaka
Ordered several of these because of Andersons use of 7075 aluminum. I received one in a package with their name on it. The rest in plain plastic bags. As you compare them it was obvious they were made by different companies. Wondering if the rest are Andersons or what. Will contact with them to find out.

Charging Handle - Quality at an Affordable Price
This is a basic milspec AR-15 charging handle. It is will made with a consistent finish.
got a bad one?
turns out the handle i got did not function properly. it wouldn't travel all the way in, so it wouldn't latch without a push. the BCG was banging into it.no worries though. PA took care of it and made things right.
by Gregory Caldwell
Used this handle matched with an.andersin bolt and upper and it works as it should, feels a little gritty but is getting better as it wears in
A lot for a little
Used with Anderson Upper and BCG, for the money you can't beat this combo.
