The charging handle is an important part of an AR-15; a low-quality model will cause problems with both reliability and ergonomics. If you're upgrading your off-the-shelf AR-15 or building your own customized model, Phase 5 Tactical provides the toughest charging handle around.
Numerous improvements put this Phase 5 charging handle in a class of its own. The first thing you'll notice is the large latch with deep serrations for improved grip capabilities. In addition, the roll pin has been replaced with a sturdy coil spring pin of a much larger diameter, meaning that this charging handle will faithfully soldier on through constant use. Finally, the shaft has been built thicker and sturdier to stand up to the rigors of combat. Phase 5 Tactical has truly raised the bar with this rugged Battle Latch Charging Handle!

I upgraded my charging handle with the Phase 5 and I'm glad I did. Strong and smooth operation, works great on my Delton upper; and it matches the Phase 5 bolt assist device too. I'm a happy camper and will buy another for my other build.
