    Great charging handle. Love that the handles are shorter than the regular Warhammer which are just too damn long. The L&S version is the perfect size, and the higher rear shelf lip plus a relief cut for gas is a great added touch for shooting suppressed. Nicely done Lead & Steel!

    Received as ordered and looks to be an excellent charging handle. Can’t wait to finish my AR build using this CHODE!

    Love this charging handle so far. Easy to use and great size. Any chance y’all are making an AR-10 version? I’ll buy that one too.

    This product is worth the investment. Particularly so considering the marketing dept. could have named it ‘micro-shaft’, ‘taint tickler’, ‘testicle pimple’, or ‘vaginal dissapointer’. Bravo!
