The Raptor-LT ambidextrous charging handle aims to alleviate some of the problems with MIL-SPEC Charging handles, without adding excessive weight. The LT features the same heavy duty 7075-T6 aluminum construction, with latches that are then overmolded with high-strength fiberglass reinforced polymer to create the perfect balance of strength, weight, and durability. Where MIL-SPEC charging handles feature a small latch on the left side of the rifle, intended for two-fingers to grasp and charge, the Raptor LT features larger, ambidextrous latches ideal for charging with the blade of your palm for increased speed and reliability.

  • Ambidextrous design
  • Durable latch design
  • Mil-Spec anodized black
  • Flat dark earth reinforced polymer latches
  • 100% Made in the U.S.A.

A MUST HAVE purchase!

Just upgraded my mil-spec charging handle to this. Solid charging handle. I am satisfied all the way around. Don’t let the LT scare you. This is lighter than your non-LT charging handle, however, this is still a solid charging handle. Great grip. Bulky surface for comfort. My girlfriend is a lefty so the ambidextrous action makes my rifle easier for the both of us to shoot. She loves this charging handle too! Do yourself a favor and buy this.

Worth the Upgrade

This is really not that bad for the performance you get. Some people will say "I will never pay 60 bucks for a charging handle", I use to be one of those people. Easy to charge my rifle now and the FDE look is always pleasing. Very durable and has a proven track record, can not go wrong with Radian. Now I will need to put it in my other Rifles as well.

Quality product!

Radian Raptor charging handles have ended up being my favorite, others had too big of handles or too sharp of handles! Had to return the sharp one, but this design seems to be just the right size and the feel is excellent. I've purchased them in regular finish and NiBoron and like them. Then saw the LT version, which was less expensive, because the handles are polymer, but risked trying something new, and glad I did! The polymer finish has a matt feel, slight texture, so it's not slippery, plus it doesn't get cold like the metal ones, and it's less expensive. I kinda like it more than the regular one, and the colors don'd cost extra! Try it, you'll probably like it.

Worth It

I've been looking at replacing my milspec charging handles for some time, but just didn't like the look, or feel, of so many others that friends run on theirs. A friend bought one of these, loved it, and showed it to me. I loved the look of it, and after running some rounds through his gun, I was sold on it. It's big enough to do the job, but not so big as to be in the way. It feels sturdy, although definitely lighter than milspec, and seems to slide much easier as well. In addition, the FDE color is close enough to Magpul FDE, it doesn't stand out on my gun. I've already bought 2 of these (1 FDE, 1 black), and will be switching over the rest of my rifles as soon as I can.

Great Buy!
