Your charging handle may not seem important until you you need to run your rifle in a hurry. The VLTOR charging handle combines a host of upgrades over the original AR-15 / M4 charging handle. From a redesigned pivot that transfers force into the body instead of a small roll pin, to a beefed up 7075-T6 aluminum body, this durable charging handle will outlast the competition. Add in a medium length latch optimized for fast manipulation and you’ll never be satisfied with OEM charging handles again.
- Mod 5 small latch
- High strength 7075-T6 aluminum
- MIL-SPEC Type III Class 2 hardcoat anodized finish
- Redirects force off roll pin into the body
The Mod 5 charging handle features a reinforced, small latch, optimized for fast manipulations while reducing snag risk. The extended latch features an aggressive, non-slip front face that makes palm blading and other rapid charging motions fast and effective at getting your rifle back in the fight! To survive this hard use, the latch has been redesigned to redirect the force away from the roll pin (which has also been beefed up over OEM options) and into the hearty forged aluminum body.
The original M16 charging handle can bend and break at the worst time when when you’re running your rifle in a hurry. To prevent this, the VLTOR charging handle upgrades the material to high-strength 7075-T6 aluminum. It’s even finished with a MIL-SPEC grade Type III Class 2 hardcoat anodized finish.
