Radian SD Charging Handle


For those of you who are intent on fine-tuning the performance of your AR-15 using a suppressor but are tired of that end-of-day face covered in carbon, Radian Weapons (formerly AXTS Weapons Systems) has a special treat in store - the Radian Silencer-Optimized Raptor-SD Ambidextrous Charging Handle. This Radian charging handle delivers the same great basic performance and good looks as the original Raptor, the Raptor-SD features a patent-pending shaft machined with ports designed to send gasses from the upper receiver forward, away from the shooter. Instead of a day at the range dealing with the burn and soot of repeated blowback, this gem lets you shoot in comfort with clear eyes.

The Radian charging handle is crafted from the same quality 7075 aluminum as its brethren and Mil-Spec type III hard anodized for superior appearance and performance. This Raptor-SD Charging Handle is designed for AR-15 platforms and will work in the same builds that accept the original Raptor Ambidextrous Charging Handle. Gas tuners rejoice! Radian made a suppressor charging handle just for you.


You don’t need to look any further; the Raptor-SD Charging Handle from Radian Weapons is the cream of the crop in blowback management specialized charging handles. We wouldn’t offer it to our customers if it wasn’t. The Radian charging handle doesn’t just improve the shooter’s experience from what’s come to be expected using stock charging handles on suppressed rifles. Reviewers say it takes care of business far better than other specialized handles on the market.

When you choose a charging handle with an NP3 finish for your next AR-15 build or as an upgrade to your existing charging handle, you’ll benefit from the superior lubricity and corrosion resistance that makes NP3 finishes the next generation in firearms. Adding a Raptor-SD NP3 charging handle to your AR system gives your weapon an edge. The NP3 finish needs no extra lubricants to work smoothly in your rifle and won’t collect debris. Reduce your cleaning time and additional lubricant costs, and eliminate the sticky lube soot and dirt combination that messes everything up. Choose NP3-coated components like the Radian charging handle, and you won’t compromise corrosion resistance. NP3 coatings give you the best self-lubricity and durability to give yourself a real edge.


Not sure if your suppressor charging handle needs a Type III Mil-spec coating or if an NP3 finish? Trust the customer service team at Wing Tactical to help you choose the right components for your build.
