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 new ARCH-EL Charging Handle from Strike Industries is a T-6 7075 forged hard-anodized charging handle featuring a larger aluminum latch surface that functions with ease in adverse conditions. The SI ARCH-EL featuring the aluminum SI Extended Latch will not wear your receiver as fast as steel latches! With its highly polished surface, its ergonomic design makes for a smooth, clean charge. The quality of the ARCH-EL is second to none and it's built for durability. Once you place the ARCH-EL on your rifle, you will see, feel, and know the quality of the ARCH-EL
Latch Style: Extended Latch - Extended Latch Charging handles allow the user more surface area to grip and engage with the charging handle. While this extends just a bit further out from the upper receiver, extended latches are great for users with gloves or those wanting just a bit more leverage.
Platform: This charging handle is designed for the AR-15 platform. This will not work on the LR-308 platform.
