Add To:

The Airborne Charging Handle (ACH) was developed at the request of an elite organization famous for its expertise in aerial insertion. The organization requested a lower profile lever design to reduce the chances of snagging. The ACH’s lower profile design is especially ideal for rifles where the primary sighting system is a red dot or similar low profile optic system. The ambidextrous ACH is 3D machined from a solid block of aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum. Shortened levers are dual contoured with gently concaved radius cuts in the vertical and horizontal planes. The handling surfaces of the levers are checkered for confident operation while wearing gloves. A taller fence at the rear of the ACH aids in redirecting gas blowback when shooting with short barreled and suppressed weapon systems. The ACH and its components are Type 3 Hardcoat anodized.

Will this work in a .308 upper?
MICHAEL M on Dec 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The airborne charging handle is for the AR15 platforms . It will not work in a AR10/.308 upper . They do have the Super charging handle for AR10 but not the (airborne) charging handle.

other better options
not a good charging handle compared to others. does not pull evenly from the right as it does the left. scrapes hard when pulling from the right. now all of my triggers are Geissele so don't get me wrong I love those products but not this one.

Not worth the price, but it IS awesome.
I bought one just to see what the fuss was about. Definitely, the best charging handle I’ve used, but not $35 better than a BCM.

Ambidextrous charging handle.
This handle is the perfect size for an SBR or pistol build. Long as you are using iron sights or a small red dot the ambidextrous function works great.
Ready for the build.

Outstanding quality and a very affordable price. No reason to pinch pennies, when dependability is paramount to defend your family, or yourself.
