Driven by over a decade of feedback from real-world combat operations, BCM® has made continual design refinements and structural improvements to the charging handle in the M4 and M16 to address the current manual of arms for the weapon system.
Optimizing the contours into a snag-free profile that facilitates immediate manipulation with an end user’s reaction side grip. The range of BCMGUNFIGHTER Charging Handles is available with both ambidextrous and MIL-SPEC controls.
Redesigned to eliminate the load on the pivot pin (like USGI handle fitted with an extended latch) and keep the energy from charging close the centerline of the carbine/rifle, BCMGUNFIGHTER Charging Handles provides a larger uninterrupted engagement surface with a smaller silhouette.
A new charging handle is not only a quality-of-life improvement for your AR-15, it also can help you build more confidence in your rifle. Clearing malfunctions and getting your rifle back up and in the fight is certainly possible with a mil spec charging handle, but this is something that can absolutely be improved. This BCM charging handle helps make that a reality.
