Default Got my bcm gunfighter

Charging handle in today and I have to say I really like it, feels much better than the stock one.

Very nice! That is good to hear as mine should be here Friday. Folks on here have a pretty good opinion about it so I'm guessing we'll both be quite happy.

Awesome, I was just looking at getting that. Can you tell me why you didn't get the Badger Ordinance latch?
I need a better latch system bad on my AR Uppers, scopes make them a hassle to deal with. How easy was the install?

The BCM GF has a better mechanical make-up. The moving part keeps constant contact w/ the handle to avoid breakage. I don't believe the Badger does.

Anyone who know how to field strip an AR can install a new charging handle in less than a minute! The Gunfighter is a great product, most of us go for the Model 4 but under a large scope you might want to consider the larger No 3.

ETA:
Changed the above to "the larger No. 3". The No. 5 is the small size.

So you replaced the whole handle. I was thinking about just replacing the latch.

BCM Gunfighter +1

I kinda like the big latch, makes it easier for me to left hand one hand charge.

The only other aftermarket CH id consider is a PRI gas buster for supressed use but, Id prorobably play with a BCM and a bit of silicon before shelling out for a PRI.
