YHM Latch


An effective and inexpensive upgrade for your standard charging handle. Much easier to manipulate than the tiny standard latch. Primary Arms is always a pleasure to deal with!

Yankee Hill Machine Tactical Latch


Excellent product. Looks and feels great. Exceptional ergonomics for thumb and forefinger charging. A must have for the serious gun fighter.

YHM Tac latch is a very nice upgrade for the money


Good quality latch, feels much better than a standard latch. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again for other builds.

Nice latch

pretty good deal


I like it as much as my BCM charging handles and a lot cheaper!

YH Tactical Charging Handle Latch


I prefer this latch more than the others that stick out way too far. This works just right.

Tactical charging handle latch


Simply put, this is the best bang for the buck. At $8 you can have a superior charging handle. Easy to install. Much cheaper than a $60 upgrade. Best money I've ever spent for a simple upgrade fix. I installed 5 of them for my other AR's.

The charge handle works great, the shipping was even better $3.20! Good to deal with a co. that thinks.

Yankee Hill Machine Tactical Charging Handle Latch


us mail sucks took 9 days to receiveFirst class product, well built and heavy duty works well on my new AR=10 in .308I wish it came with its on roll pin. Would be good to have a spare.



Well worth the modest investment, especially for a scoped AR. Liked it to the point I installed it on my other (non-scoped) ARs.
