Ambi Charging Handle

Filed under: Gear,Photog — hdls @ 5:20 pm

For anyone that is either left handed or shoots leftie because they are cross eye dominant there is a new charging handle out for you AR you may want to consider.

My wife is right handed, but shoots left handed because she is cross eye dominant. One of the challenges with that setup is working the charging handle. Well, good news on that front. Rainier Arms has teamed up with AXTS Weapon Systems to release a new ambidextrous charging handle – the Raptor.

We received our package from Rainier Arms this week and I opened it up and snapped a couple of pictures of the Raptor sitting next to a Bravo Company Manufacturing Gunfighter charging handle – a Mod 4 (medium) if I recall correctly.


We haven’t had a chance to take the new charging handle out shooting yet, but I’ll report back after we’ve put a few rounds down range.

(And yes, I know the photo kinda sucks. I’ll see if I can get better ones.)
