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.

  • Made from aircraft grade 7075 aluminum
  • Ambidextrous design
  • Durable latch design
  • Mil-Spec anodized black
  • Black reinforced polymer latches
  • 100% Made in the U.S.A.

A steal for the price

by -

I've been wanting to upgrade my mil spec charging handle for a while. I was leaning towards the Radian Raptor LT and lucked out when Primary Arms had them on sale last week. That is the lowest price I've seen. I wasn't disappointed. This handle has a huge, ambidextrous, rugged handle, just what I was looking for. And it is reduced in weight compared to the standard Radian Raptor, but just as sturdy. It makes charging my AR a breeze especially after using a mil spec handle for a solid 6 months of shooting. I will definitely be using this handle on my next AR build.

Very noice!

Great charging handle it feels and looks awesome. It has the lip in the back to help mitigate gas if running suppressed and is serrated on both side to help get good grip if you pinch the handle when you charge. It feels the same charging from either side and when ever my lefty buddy comes to shoot with me I don’t have to hear him cry. I only run BCM or radian charging handles not being snobby about it but I want to know I have a quality part without breaking the bank.

Easy to grip, smooth, almost effortless to pull back.


The original equipment charging handle on my AR-15 required super strength to pull back, even after lubricating. Which was ridiculous where seconds count in a self-defense situation. I did my research and settled on the Radian Raptor LT. Wow, what a difference. It slides back smoothly, quickly and almost without any effort. Sure, it's a bit expensive but considering how well it performs, I'd buy it again without hesitation.

Get one for every rifle you have

Excellent charging handle. There is no drag or resistance when pulling. Smooth, even pull all the way through.

Didn't fit

I have the "regular" Radian Raptor in a different AR and love it. This wouldn't fit my PSA AR pistol upper. Had to stone a lot of material off to make it fit. I don't mean just some finish... I mean actual material. The lugs on the sides just would seat but didn't have clearance to actually push in or pull out. Both the standard charging handles I had on hand fit it so I'm fairly confident my example was out of spec. Should have returned it but I'm stubborn.

Hey guys, new AR guy here. I had to deal with the scraping problems that came with the standard CH from PSA and they were quite annoying. I'm telling you right now, the Radian LT is worth every penny the second you charge it for the first time. I don't see any reason to not use these with the rest of my AR builds down the road. Spend the money and all your problems will dissappear.
