The Vltor BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle was engineered from the ground up and serves as a high end upgrade for an existing charging handle or as a replacement for a worn out or broken charging handle. Some of the enhancements that have been engineered into the Bravo Company Manufacturing Gunfighter include an internal redesign which redirects the force from the roll pin that holds the latch in place, to the body of the charging handle. By building a backstop for the extended latch to rest against while under a full load, the force is redirected from the roll pin to the back of the charging handle body. This prolongs the life of the charging handle and reduces the possibility of failure in the field. Machined from 7075 T6 Billet Aluminum and hard coat anodized (per Mil-A-8625F, Type III, Class 2), this charging handle is sure to improve the appearance, performance and durability of your modern sporting rifle.
