Need wider charging handle

Recommended Posts

The scope on my flat-top DPMS is just long enough to make it difficult and clumsy getting a grip on the charging handle, so I'm looking for a source for a replacement handle that would solve the problem. The ideal width replacement handle, compared to the current measurement shown below, would be at least 3.3"; more would be okay, too.

Thanks, 98Z5V. That's another possible.

I just wish these products gave the width dimensions with the specs. It appears that latch lever on the left side does add some needed width, but would want to confirm that somehow.

9 years ago I compared an AR-10 charging handle to a (brand new-released) BCM charging handle - and some jackass sends an anonymous post not long ago, that I am an idiot...  

I don't get it...

Do not get one of these if you are going for lightweight,  as they are made that much better than a standard charging handle.

 

These are still my go to when a new rifle is built/aquired.
