Default R.A.R.Guns Sidewinder Charging Handle

Well we finally got the prototype and it rocks! I've put together a video for your viewing pleasure.


We have added it to our online store but not the main site yet.

We are now accepting pre-production orders. Those who order and pay now will receive 10% discount and your choice of serial number or name engraved into the charging portion of the handle.

Here is a link to the product.

Damn!



That is a very probable upgrade accessory Anthony! I do see some possible sling carry issues from that handle poking out though, that may need to be addressed.

Si, si, ese muy interesante. $175 is a little off-putting, though

And I thought my PRI M84 Gas Buster Charging Handle with the Combat Latch was expensive at $80.

Yea, it's definitely a little pricey but we did the best we could on the price. We do really feel that this thing works great and is worth it. I wish we had the capitol to produce 50 or 100 thousand to lower the cost. You have no idea what the planning, design, blue print, auto cad and patent lawyer cost. It almost broke the bank. Believe me, if we could make it lower we would.

PS: this is way, way better the a Gas Buster. We will have a tactical use video next week.

Does yours vent the blow-back away from the shooter's face?

And yes, I'm very aware of, "...the planning, design, blue print, auto cad and patent lawyer cost." [sic]

And, I thought billet meant "one-piece"??

Nice idea and by the presentation in the video it sure seems to work very well. I did have one question/idea,

Where you have the 2 long parts connected - with hex bolts, could you not attach the swinging lever at that point, thus shortening the overall length/protrusion of the device?

Just a thought when I first looked at it. Good luck

Cane, billet is just a marketing word. Anyplace it's used from firearms to automotive, it's got the connotation of meaning "machined from a single block" of whatever. Inside the machining industry, a billet is a chunk of material in the form is was wrought at the original foundry, typically a big block. It's basically virgin material before it's been rolled into bar or plate, or forged into some shape.

So, in this case, I'll assume that Anthony means it's "billet" because both pieces were machined from some larger pieces of aluminum. I don't see where he's incorrect calling it billet.
