Your charging handle is a key element in building a tactical AR-15 or M-16. Upgrading the charging handle from stock Mil-spec also creates a more reliable weapon. The engineers at Bravo Company have got you covered with their new AR-15/M16 BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle. They have made the handle oversized so when you are pulling it back it is a smoother and more even pull. It also keeps the pin that holds the release latch in place from taking on extra wear. It is machined from Billet Aluminum to withstand heavy operational loads. You can order the Gun Fighter Charging Handle in two sizes, medium and large. If you are an operator that wears gloves often, I highly recommend the large. If you are just wanting to build a smooth and reliable range gun for use without gloves go with the medium. This is an upgrade for your AR-15 or M-16 that you will be extremely happy with. Check it out here for more info.

I really like this charging handle. I had on of the older extended latches when I was in iraq. I had a lot of issues with the large square latch. It always tended to get snagged on my chest rig or clothing. When the carging handle would get caught, it would sometimes cause the bolt to unseat and pop my ejection port cover open. I would then have to tap my forward assist and close the EPC. Iraq is not the best place to have this happen to you.The BCM gunfighter tends to solve this issue with their slightly rounded but not ridiculously oversized latch. I currently run the medium sized charging handle. I feel this is the perfect lengh because it isn’t so long that is will get snagged on anything. I run a chest rig with eight magazines and wear flight gloves and I have not had any issues with it getting accidently caught on anything. However, I feel that a large charging handle causes more problems than it solves. If you ran into the same problems that I described earlier at the wrong time, could get you killed. I feel that the large charging handle causes more problems than it solves. This is just my honest opinion… not fact. So, what works well for me may not work well for someone else. Hopefully this will help someone out.
Keep up the awsome review Jim! Keep it up!

Andrew, I appreciate the feedback from an actual operator and appreciate your service to our country. Good information on the larger latch. I should probably update it to say “over-sized” gloves lol. Definately dont need your bolt in the un-seated position when returning fire. Thanks for the great info man. Hope to see you post more.
