The Geissele Automatics Super Charging Handle is a fully ambidextrous, dual-levered, gas-busting charging handle designed specifically for the AR platform. 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 levers themselves have been extended over the standard AR-15 charging handle for faster and easier operation regardless of which side you're charging from. 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 Desert Dirt Color (DDC).

The Super Charging Handle fits standard AR-15 pattern uppers.

Geissele Part # 05-313S

Note: Geissele's Desert Dirt Color (DDC) finish refers to a variety of shades of desert terrain designed to better break up a rifle's outline. These colors can vary drastically even between products from the same batch and ARE NOT intended to color match. Per Geissele Automatics, the only way to receive a uniform color across all parts and accessories is to have them painted with a different finish such as DuraCoat or Cerakote.

Better Than the Raptor

by -

This is the first Geissele product that I've owned and I am thoroughly impressed with it. I just want to start with the color of this charging handle - it's absolutely every bit as beautiful in person as it looks on the website. But more than that, this is the best feeling charging handle I've ever used. I have a Raptor charging handle on another AR, and this charging handle is by far superior feeling in my opinion. The curved handles are very comfortable to grab, and the entire charging handle is made with incredible precision, making it glide in and out of my rifle very smoothly. So far I'm very pleased with this charging handle and though I do not shoot my AR suppressed, this charging handle is a "gas-buster" which will definitely be nice to have if I do start shooting my AR suppressed.

Smooth and Functional

I have never used any other charging handles other than the stock mil-spec handles and this was a massive improvement to this function. The Geissele handle is very well built. It has a large serrations on the grip that make it comfortable to use and helps to keep your fingers on it if you are wearing gloves. It also actuates smoothly on both sides. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for ambi functionality or looking for an upgraded handle.

Great charging handle.

Super easy to use. The color is cool, although it doesn't really match any common color patterns. (FDE, sand, etc.) Fit is great, no binding. Very nice when using a suppressor. Absolutely no blow back from the charging handle on a 300 Blackout, 10.5" upper with an Omega; Super or sub rounds.

As smooth as it is stout


This handle is the real deal, smooth, highest quality built charging handle you will find. It's truly ambi ... locks and unlocks identically from either side or both sides simultaneously. I prefer their Airborne version with the short handles, but they are no where to be found unless you buy a complete Super Duty rifle or pistol (which I have and I'm GLAD I did via Primary Arms!!) The Super Charging Handle is indeed super.
