Wing Tactical Brings You The Raptor Charging Handle - NP3 Coated

Wing Tactical only carries the best components so there’s no need to wonder if the NP3 coating of the Radian Raptor AR-15 Ambidextrous Charging Handle is a real advancement or just another flash in the pan. As shooters and armorers, we know how important the finish on moving parts is. No one wants a finish that won’t stand up to use. We all know just how miserable it is when a flawed finish starts to give and corrosion sets in. The NP3 coating featured on this Radial Charging Handle isn’t a flavor of the month option. NP3 finishes wear like no other finish on the market. NP3 coating has an inherent lubricity that can’t be beat. It stays clean and wears longer than most coatings commonly available.

NP3 Is At Home Anywhere

NP3 coated parts feature a refined, satin gray look that will stand out from the sea of Mil-Spec black at the range. The finish is non-reflective, so it won’t throw up a flash to give away your position when you’re in the field with it.

Radian’s NP3 coated Raptor Ambidextrous Charging Handle is just what the Armorer ordered for your AR-15 build. Take it to the range to show off, or take it out on an extended tour. Either way, you have a piece you can count on. Even if you somehow make a mark in the NP3 finish of your Raptor Charging Handle, you won’t have to worry about peeling or corrosion running under the coating. Corrosion doesn’t migrate underneath NP3 finishes, so you can take them anywhere and never worry about a failure in the field.
