Badger Ordnance has integrated several key features to make a great charging handle that some miss out on.
The Badger Ordnance Gen 3 Ambidextrous Charging Handle is designed to be significantly more robust than a GI handle, as well as giving ambidextrous capability. The Gen 3 latches are just the right size and shape to give you rapid access, as well as having great texture to keep your fingers in place, all while having a generous radii to avoid being a snag hazard. Machined from 7075 T6 forgings, this handle is significantly stronger than those made from billet or extrusions. Large Stainless Steel pins hold the latches in place, and the mechanism is operated by a Stainless Steel sling. This charging handle will also have a high shelf on the back, which will give you the benefit of redirecting gas away from your face while shooting suppressed. The Gen 3 Ambidextrous Charging Handle is optimized for use with Mil Spec AR-15/M16/M4 platform rifles.
