The Charging Handle on the AR-15 is a simple latching design that indexes with the gas key on your bolt carrier group, this allows you to charge your rifle, eject and feed rounds manually.
About this Charging Handle: The Strike Latchless Charging Handle represents another step forward for the AR-15.
Simple in its execution, yet robust and reliable, the revolutionary Strike Latchless Charging Handle offers forged 7075 construction, efficient side gas venting, and a solid, comfortable interface for the user.
Reliable receiver lockup is achieved through a novel hidden spring mechanism that uses the Charging Handle insertion slot in the upper receiver charging handle channel.
This channel features a natural radius that will not wear rapidly like the external, 90-degree edge of the standard latch area of the upper receiver.
The flat spring bearing surface is much larger than a steel ball bearing, spreading force and wear out over a larger area.
Increased service life is one benefit of this type of system, as is the comfort and peace of mind that come from a lack of moving or external components that can break or snag/catch on your gear and foreign objects.
The solid aluminum construction is durable and provides a solid mounting point for the ISO Tabs, an add-on component that increases surface area for those using large optics and/or gloved hands.
Ambidextrous: This AR-15 charging handle can be manipulated from both sides, improving ergonomics for both left and right-handed shooters.
Latch Style: Modular Paddles - The SI Latchless Charging Handle can take different latches, and paddles.
Platform: This charging handle is designed for the AR-15 platform. This will not work on the LR-308 platform.
