The Gear Head Works folding charging handle has been a long time coming. It went through several generations in development along with extensive testing. This was to make sure you received the most solid and best performing folding charging handle available. It is made from a combination of high grade steel and aluminum. It comes with a replacement operating rod for an easy swap. The handle pivots on a solid steel pin that is pressed in and is rated at over 2000 pounds of breaking strength! The self contained ball detent is ground stainless and rides smoothly over the engineered camming surfaces of the slide. It has very positive locks in both open and closed so your handle will stay right where you put it while operating but it still easy to manipulate.
