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.

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.

Budget Minded


Nothing fancy or exquisite about this charging handle but it functions as required.

it works


Nothing too fancy, good quality at fair price!

Anderson charging handles


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.
