Not Magpul FDE

by -

Not really Magpul flat dark earth. More of a golden copper color. Other then that, really nice charging handle.

Great Upgrade


Nice large latch charging handle. I have two of these on a couple of rifles. For the price it is a great upgrade over the OEM style.

Can't beat this charging handle for the money

I replaced my stock charging handle on my Colt 6920 with this one. What a nice upgrade over the stock one. The bigger latch makes it super easy to pull the bolt back. No the FDE color doesn't match exactly to the magpul FDE furniture but it is close enough for me, it still looks good.

Good CH

Works great, just not Magpul FDE.

Works great. Well built from what I can tell, used this to replace my stock charging handle. Loses a star for not being FDE. It more resembles a burnt bronze color than a Magpul FDE. Not a huge issue but if you're a perfectionist then this isn't the FDE you're looking for.

Doesn't completly match the MAGPUL FDE furniture on one of my build, but it has good quality.

Works perfectly for what it is


This is my 3rd SI charging handle. Construction is excellent. Feels as solid as the first 2. Never had any bind, twist, bend or break. The color is NOT FDE. Very shiny gold/bronze. Theres nothing 'flat' about the anodizing. Color is the only demerit.

Better Than Mil-Spec


Slapped this on my PSA 18" Stainless AR. Super cool color, definitely sturdier construction than mil-spec charging handles, Just overall makes my rifle look cooler. I like the extended latch but it will poke your belly if your rifle is slung and you're not wearing thick clothing or a plate carrier. Also, you can chamber a round using only one side of the Charging handle, so that's also a nice plus if you're in an awkward position. SI makes quality gear!



This is more bronze/coyote than it is FDE. If you're looking for something close to Magpul FDE this is not the item for you.

It's also likely one of the least comfortable handles to use I've ever had short of a GI charging handle.

The build quality is good though and it is still a step up over the plain old GI charging handle as far as ergonomics go.
