Why Do I Want a Nickel Boron .308 Charging Handle?

If you’re going to replace parts on an existing .308 rifle or build your next custom rifle you should be able to count on your new components to function smoothly and provide a long service life. NiB-X Nickle Boron coated parts take advantage of the inherent lubricity of that finish working with low friction, even without additional lubricants.

Why is WMD NiB-X Nickel Boron Different?

WMD Guns takes the best qualities of Nickel Boron coatings and makes them even better by applying them in their own proprietary fashion creating NiB-X, a harder, more durable nickel boron coating than those applied by other manufacturers. The WDM Nickel Boron 308 AR Charging Handle is designed to take more friction and abuse than any of its Mil-Spec counterparts. This Nickel Boron .308 Charging Handle won’t crack chip or peel. Premature wear is no longer a concern when you choose a Nickel Boron charging Handle from WMD. The NiB-X finish on the WMD Nickel Boron 308 AR Charging Handle is 40% longer lived than traditional Mil-spec coatings and provide a lubricious surface that allows for easy operation of parts that experience metal on metal friction in the course of operation.
