The AR platform is a great candidate for suppression, especially given that it can be tuned to shoot subsonic ammunition. One exception to that is that, since most ARs are direct gas impingement guns, there tends to be a lot of gas that ends up back in the shooter’s face. SilencerCo, which makes some of the best suppressors in the industry, know this all too well and makes products to help mitigate the negative effects of suppressing an AR.

  • Compatible with AR 15 Upper Receivers
  • 7075 T6 Aluminum 
  • Gas Defeating 

Shooting an AR suppressed is one of the most enjoyable shooting experiences out there, except for the fact that the AR tends to spit a great deal of hot gas and unburnt powder back at the shooter. This charging handle's geometry is meant to better seal up the end of the AR’s upper receiver, making it much harder for gasses to escape. These drop-in above the bolt carrier group just like any other charging handle, meaning that installation on this should take less than a minute for most AR shooters who are familiar with the platform.

great product. prompt shipping!

Good seal, weak latch

by -

Tried this on my 7.62x39 and it did a great job of mitigating gas at the rear when it stayed latched. About every 3rd shot it would unlatch and come back with the bcg and boop my nose. Swapped it with the radian sd on my 300blk, and it works well with that gun which has a lot less recoil.

Works as intended

Excellent charging handle, does exactly what it is supposed to do. This is the second generation that fixes the problem of the old one that would fall apart. This one is great, buy with confidence.

A Nice Reduction in Gas to the Face

by -

I noticed a reduction in gas to the face when running my 300BLK AR suppressed. The price stings a bit for a charging handle, hence the 4 star review.

Works well

Looks like it does block gas from under the handle when viewed from the side while someone shooting.
