It's been cycled over 1000 times so far and we haven't seen any problems. We are taking it out for field testing today. We will post some video later.

South paw won't work unless it's on a lefty upper. It would cost too much to build since there are not that many lefty uppers out there.

We doubled the original order to get the price down. It's now $124.00

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"??
I've honestly never had that happen to me but this is built very similar to a BCM on the charging rod part.

When I was a machinist, billet meant milled, not stamped, molded, forged or extruded.

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
We extended the handle forward to make more like a true side charger. It makes easier to charge while in the prone position and when keeping the sights on target while charging.

We will be adding a tab to the right side to accommodate of hand charging.
