You know that there are a lot of things that the guys who designed the original AR didn’t put a lot of thought into. While some of them are internal issues that required redesigning and often a variety of aftermarket replacement parts, there are simpler solutions to some problems. The charging handle is one of those things that can be a problem, but might not be something that’s worth the hassle of a tear out and replace procedure. For those of us who want to improve the real world function of the AR’s charging handle latch assembly without a lot of hassle, Odin Works offers their Extended Charging Handle Latch.

Why Do I Need an Extended Charging Handle Latch?

Imagine you’ve got that great new scope you’ve always wanted. Now imagine you need to operate that charging handle in a hurry and you don’t want to get mixed up with your high-grade glass. Yes, a little clearance goes a long way when you’re in a hurry.

No optics problems? Do you shoot when it’s cold? Lots of shooters don’t live and work where an eternal spring makes life easy. Those of you who have to shoot with cold weather gloves on know the small size of stock buttons and handles on the AR and the lack of clearance in some situations are not compatible with any kind of bulk added to your hands. Some big guys prefer extensions for the same reason, even bare handed.

The Odin Works Extended Charging Handle Latch is designed to be an ergonomic upgrade to any Mil-Spec charging handle. The Odin Works XCH is made from quality 7075 Billet Aluminum for strength that won’t let you down under heavy use.
