BCMGunfighter 5.56 Charging Handle

The BCMGUNFIGHTER™ Charging Handle and extended latches feature internal redesigns to direct the force off of the roll pin and into the body of the charging handle during support hand only manipulations.  This new design has a built in backstop engineered into the extended latch and into the charging handle.  As the latch is opened up, its’ travel is limited by these flat surface backstops.  With this travel limiting feature, the stress is taken off the roll pin, and is now redirected into the entire body of the charging handle.

The BCMGUNFIGHTER™ Charging Handle offers two significant advantages.

1.  Since the tiny roll pin is no longer the weak point - it is a much stronger system and tactical latch will stay intact even under repeated support side only manipulation.
2.  With the force kept inside the body of the handle, when the handle is pulled directly to the rear, it moves directly to the rear and does not angle off to the outboard side.

Nice Refinement Rather Pricey October 7, 2015
Reviewer: RPB from Ignacio, CO United States  
Would have liked to have had refinements like that in the military 25+ years back. Would have liked to have taken my weapon home for that matter. Believe it should be an automatic perc for the volunteer military. I think that the Gunfighter handle makes the AR less awkward but I rather prefer what IO is doing with American AK's to AR's.

I've noticed that there are side charging AR receivers on the loose. Know nothing but like the idea. A bit less awkward.

I've been building AR's and playing with some pistol uppers with Gunfighter Handles. Play carefully AK and AR pistols should come with a bit of a sound suppressor. Makes them less useful. Used in a hurry without ear protection rocks your ears for a couple days.

So far I like the Gunfighter best because it has the longest addition to the handle I've worked with. It's noticeably very sturdy.  There are some good newcomer's around with much better pricing, but the handles I've seen don't quite match up to the Gunfighter.

Gunfighter Mod4 April 3, 2015
Reviewer: Derik Becker from Tacoma, WA United States  
Love this new charging handle. My stock oem charging handle came cocked at an angle (defect), the latch fails to fully engage and it the latch also sticks when pulled back. The rifle is brand new and the charging handle is already stripping even before I put any rounds through.

Installed this new BCM mod4 and it's just as I imagined: smooth operation, perfect fit, amazingly comfortable to operate and looks nice as well.

I asked for some free stickers with my order and SKD provided. Been a fan of this company for a long time because they stock all the good items and brands I'm looking for. A+ charging handle, A+ SKD.

Medium latch April 3, 2015
Reviewer: Genaro Negrete from Copperas Cove, TX United States  
Good, solid contact when charging with either the palm of the hand and the fingers. medium latch is still low profile enough to not snag on gear/sling.

Quality as expected January 10, 2015
Reviewer: Hueto  
Baller BCM parts are baller as expected.

What really tickled my cockles was how well it was packaged. The guys at SKD packed my brown box so well that I could barely get my handle out.
