While the idea can be considered good for some, I think that it is more of a sell to tactical / rifle match types. As an average Joe, I dont want to give up my upper hanguard wood. If I have to loose my firing hand position for a second to charge the weapon, so be it.

Also that little handle whipping back and forth in my field of vision doesn't turn me on either.

Actualy, that was sort of the point of this for me. I think that the ratchet charging system looks more promising than the lightening bolt. Thats just me though.

It's the answer to the question that no one had asked.

Ive started using my off(left) hand to charge the ak after reloading so dont have to lose your firing hand position. reach under and charge.
It takes a couple times to get used to but you may find you like it better than trad. firing hand charging. I know I do.
Like this (not me)

It's a fix for a non-existant problem IMO. And it appears these mods could create problems of thier own. Leave the AK alone, it has worked really well for half a century.
