The Geissele Automatics Super Charging Handle (SCH) is a fully ambidextrous, dual-levered, gas-busting charging handle designed at the request of an elite organization famous for its expertise in aerial insertions. Machining the Super Charging Handle from a solid block of 7075-T6 aluminum allows for the levers to be dual contoured with a checkered handling surface to aid with gloved use. The shortened levers reduce snag points and are ideal for use with low-profile optics. Finally, the rear lip has been raised to help redirect the gas from suppressed or short-barreled rifles away from the shooter's face. All parts are hardcoat anodized in black.

Solid charging handle


Thisthis is an excellent charging handle. Feels solid and pulls back nicely. What I like the most about the ACH is that there really isn't anything too big or crazy hanging out its sides. A little expensive, but around the same price as other manufacturers that have a similar design. Can't go wrong with geissele too.

Yeah, it's kinda, sorta, a "Gucci" charging handle but... that being said it is REALLY NICE. You can actually feel the quality when you take it out of the packaging. It's a keeper!

Excellent Charging Handle

Absolute top notch quality charging handle. Comparable to a standard Radian Raptor, but a little lower profile. It does charging handle things well. Super fast shipping from Primary Arms as always.

Great quality


Rigid and well worth the money. The charging handle doesn't stick out far so it stays clear from snagging on clothing and gear.
