The charging handle is one of the first things many people upgrade to AR-pattern rifles. This simple and affordable upgrade can significantly improve the ergonomics of your rifle while making it a better shooter as well.

The Radian AR-10 Raptor-SD Charging Handle is an excellent option for youth .308 DPMS profile AR rifles. It is super durable, with aircraft-grade aluminum construction, and is tested at more than a million cycles without any failures.

Reduces Gas Blowback From Suppressed Rifle

The Raptor-SD Charging Handle has a truly ambidextrous design, making the rifle easier to operate for both left-handed and right-handed shooters. The charging hand latch is also extended to allow easier engagement even when wearing gloves. One of the best features of the Raptor-SD is the ported charging handle shaft, which allows more efficient redirection of gasses in the chamber, and results in a smoother blowback. This helps keep the rifle shooting smoothly even when suppressed.

Match Your Style

To improve the aesthetics of your rifle, the Raptor SD charging handle is available in a variety of finishes like Black, Radian Brown, Flat Dark Earth, Tungsten Gray, Radian Gray, Radian OD Green, and NP3. So, it doesn't only make your rifle more efficient but makes it look cool as well.
