Default Charging Handle Upgrade

I'm looking for the best one-handed charging handle. Is BCM Gun Fighter the best or are there other good options?

I have a BCM Gunfighter charging handle on both of mine and really like it. I never really seached for other handles so I can't help there.

I ahve th medium on one and the large BCM on another.
The large is best for night time half asleep charging so its on my nightstand gun.

For any other purpose it pokes you too much when carried in a sling.

I am curious what other vendors have for improved CH other than BCM/Vltor

I have a badger tactical, I like it fine. The size takes some getting used to but yeah it's fast.

I second on the notion for the Raptor. I like it better than my BCM.

I also second both the raptor and the bcm. I have one of each and can't decide which is better lol, although I do like the raptor if I accidentally convert back to old habits (two finger approach).

Yet another vote for the Raptor. I have it on my rifle and it's smooth as can be. Well built too.

I like the GunFighter, but best is a pretty strong word. It works so much better than a mil-spec charging handle that it's one of the first things I replace.
