    I bought this as a upgrade for my standard AR15 charging handle, this extended latch charging handle offers a great grip as well as fit and finish. Would definitely recommend this handle as a great non ambi option.

    It functions as it is intended. looks great if it was the right color. Be careful when ordering the "FDE Flat Dark Earth" color... It is not FDE! It is Burnt Bronze. ALSO, It is hard to grab the latch with Magpul MBUS rear sight. The sight is pretty wide. If I could return it and get a different color, I would or go with the Radian Raptor in FDE.
