I am interested in http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCMGUNFIGHTER-Charging-Handle-s/123.htm medium. I know there is also a charging handle called "gas buster" is that more of a concern? My AR would be used in a defense manner.
I'm not sure what the name of the charging handle that I use is, however it has a large "catch" for my hand. I may be weird, however I often use the side of my palm of my weak hand to rack the charging handle back. Not sure if this helps too much. It doesn't look much like the one you're looking at though. I'll do some searching and see if I can't find it.
Exactly like that :)
I've never had one break on me however I can see your point of why they would. Your images aren't showing up though. I have officially learned something new today. Points to you. Thanks for the info.
These pics illustrate why I was asking how you manipulate the gun. The BCM is designed to facilitate grabbing the latch between thumb and forefinger, instead of the old 'slingshot' method. If you use your index and social finger to pull back on both sides of the charging handle (and you shouldn't), the BCM handle isn't going to help you. It won't hurt, either.
You got any pictures of a Charging handle vs. a Dremel??I'm pretty low speed. Anything that aids in the manipulation of the weapon, for me, is a plus to overall shooter performance.
If this was a $500+ item, I would carefully and critically examine why I "want" it or "need" it. I can charge the weapon with a Mil Spec charger using my support hand only, but the Gunfighter just makes it easier and insures, under stress, that I'm more consistent when remediating stoppages and charging the weapon.
For $43 ? Why would anybody be so critical of such a piece of hardware ??
I like ribbed condoms too.
