Anderson Mfg Charging Handdle


Exactly what I wanted for my AR build. Building a plinking AR so was perfect.

Charging Handle - Quality at an Affordable Price


This is a basic milspec AR-15 charging handle. It is will made with a consistent finish.

good enough


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.

Good Price for a rugged standard Charging handle


Good price, good fit, good finishExcellent shipping and care from Primary Arms

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 worries though. PA took care of it and made things right.

Plain Charging Handle


It's just a plain regular charging handle, nothing fancy, just what I ordered.PA has become my "go-to" place.

Would purchase again


Nice product, great price. Shipped promptly.

good quality


Excellent fit and finish for a standard charging handle. Fit perfect in a ghost firearms pistol upper. Couldn't ask for anything more out of a standard charging handle
