MPN: NIBXCH / NIBXCHBLT
When you choose to upgrade parts on your AR-15 you can choose new components for a number of reasons. Most people who chose to change an action part like a charging handle are looking for greater ease of use or longer wear. When you choose a NiB-X Charging handle from WMD Guns, you get a smooth functioning nickel boron charging handle that won’t scratch, chip, peel or suffer premature surface wear.
WMD Guns offers their NiB-X coated charging handle in two types, either forged aluminum or machined from solid aluminum billet. Whether you’re a devote of fully machined pieces cut from solid aluminum billet or machined finished forged blanks, you can have a quality NiB-X charging handle from WMD Guns. The forged version features a smooth gripping surface for a clean minimalist look, while the billet edition includes a grooved rear gripping surface, perfect for enduring you keep a solid hold even if you’re dealing with wet weather or bulky gloves in cold climates. Both versions of WMD’s charging handle feature WMD’s proprietary Nickel boron surface treatment for long life and easy maintenance.
WMD Guns uses a special proprietary coating process to produce a Nickel Boron coating that is more durable and long-lived than the coating produced by other manufacturers. WMD builds their own solutions from scratch rather than using someone else’s formula and passing it off as their own. WMD’s lead-free coating process produces a harder, more friction proof surface than the nickel boron finishes sold by other companies. The resulting NiB-X coating wears longer and stays cleaner than Mil-Spec and even other producers Nickel Boron finishes. When you choose a NiB-X Charging Handle you give yourself an edge for years to come.
At first I thought I got a dud or the wrong product. But after a little research I confirmed I got the right one. Here is the deal, it has a rough texture, the "tabs" are getting slightly stuck when charging. It is not ambidextrous. I bought this to go on a complete NiB upper build on the current build in progress. I have a NiB upper, NiB BCG (complete) and a barrel with a NiB barrel extension. The 3 products just mentioned all have a slick, very lube like finish. No this charging handle. As I stated above, it has a rough gritty like texture and makes a terrible sandy, gritty like sound when charging. I will give it a try though and see if it improves over time.
I would have liked it to fit right out of the box. I thought about returning it but I needed it to finish my build.
Always quality stuff from Wing Tactical...Fair pricing and fast shipping
Purchased it to compliment a NB M-16 Bolt CG on a 204 Ruger Build. Woks fine, only wish it had a polished finish to match the bolt. Would work a little better if is was "slick" and would make it easier to clean...... Looks nice on the rifle.
Suggest to offer the same in an AMBIDEXTROUS charging handle ....... ???
