Will this system work on your KS-47? Is the KS-47 Charging handle any different than a standard AR15 charging handle?
Jacob P on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I slightly altered mine to fit the KS47 upper by adusting the t-handle side stand off. With a file, you can cut a contour of the hard charger to match the radius of the upper. We're talking a very small amount of material and it fit perfectly.
Has anyone tried this device with the Law Tactical or Sylavan folding stock adapters? Does it get in the way when the stock is folded, not to operate but to keep it folded all the way?

Will this fit/function on a PSA AR-9 pistol?
Denver J on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, google search "PSA AR9/X9 Carbine - DDC Hard Charger Tactical - RageQuit003" and watch the youtube video. This Tacticool Operator uses one on his AR-9.
Franklin F on Mar 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The difference between the two models is at what point on the upper it mounts to. The 001 mounts to the furthest most picatinny slot, closest to your handguard. The 003 mounts more towards the center and the 002 mounts to the rear, closest to the shooter.
Does this device impede the mounting of RDS?optics ?
Luis D on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It does take up some rail space at the front of the receiver, but doesn't seem to take up any space above the rest of it. It looked like a handy add-on, but it didn't take long for me to decide it was just a gimmick. Would not buy if I had handled one first. Wanna buy mine?
Is this product compatible with the PA6.5?
David S on May 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought this for an AR15 chambered in 5.56. The description says it fits standard ar15 chambered in 2.23/5.56. maybe the company will come out with one for 308 and 6.5 but for now as far as i can tell they are only making them for .223/5.56

Is shipping to the UK available for the Hard Charger? Our UK legal ARs have no gas system and are classed as bolt actions.

Great Product, would recommend if you want to turn your AR into a side charger.
Fit and finish are good. It was originally purchased for the KS 47 but the upper turned out to be proprietary. However works great on my AR 9mm and 556 rifles, much cheaper solution to turning your rifle into a side charger than other routes.

The side charger
I got this on the recommendation of a friend, it’s great on my AR9 range toy. You’re gonna reach for it on your other AR’s.
PSA AR9 lower and PSA 2 stage trigger. This has worked out to be a great combination for a range toy

Great accessory with excellent support.
I installed this on an AR-9 pistol build and it works as advertised. It is very solid. The hard Charger works great in conjunction with the Teal Blue Bravo PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release on systems lacking LRBHO.

Works, but just gets in the way, and adds unnecessary snag points.
Unnecessary gimmick. Wish I could find someone to buy it- but then again, I would feel bad selling it - not because I like it- but because it is a booby prize.

easy to set up and sturdy
Subject to change, as i have not out any rounds through it yet, but i popped this onto my AR15 real quick to see how it feels. Very nice to use, slides smooth, and feels badass! Due to the design, it is not ideal for charging while aiming (functions like a normal CH so you might hit yourself in the face), but for the most part one doesnt typically charge an AR while looking down sights anyways. So overall this thing feels great and looks badass.
