Radian Raptor-SD Charging Handle


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 black face, Radian Weapons (formerly AXTS Weapons Systems) has a special treat in store, the silencer-optimized Raptor-SD Ambidextrous Charging Handle. While it 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 Raptor-SD Ambidextrous 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 this one just for you.

NP3 Coating: The next Generation in Firearms Protection

When you choose a Radian AR-15 silencer-Optimized Raptor-SD Ambidextrous Charging Handle with a 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 finishes. The addition of 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, additional lubricant cost and eliminate the sticky lube soot and dirt combination that gums everything up. Choose NP3 coated components like the Radian AR-15 Silencer Optimized Raptor-SD NP3 Charging Handle and you won’t compromise corrosion resistance either. NP3 coatings give you the best in self-lubricity and durability so you can give yourself a real edge.

    If you are running a suppressor this is a must have. I did extensive research and have built 6 AR’s using different calibers
