When LWRC went looking for a durable ambidextrous charging handle to use in their AR-15 rifles, they could not find one that was up to their standards… So, they made their own.
This ambi AR-15 charging handle is machined from high-strength 7075-T6 aluminum. This aluminum allow is know for being extremely strong and light weight and superior to the 6061 aluminum used by many competitors. The aluminum is given a black appearance by the type 3 hard coat anodizing. This anodizing helps to increase wear and corrosion resistance.
The moving components in this charging handle are made from steel to ensure maximum durability. These components are also designed with large bearing surfaces. This helps to distribute the force and reduce wear.
This charging handle is designed to be used in AR-15 carbines & rifles. It is a simple drop in replacement that only weighs 1.9 ounces.
