    These make standard CH's look like a POS!

    What is special about this charging handle??? I've seen 'em advertised, but don't understand what features it offers.

    Thanks.

    Biggest thing is that the latch doesn't stress the roll pin.

    Very nice. I wouldn't mind having one myself. But, is there a real world problem with latch roll pins breaking? Is it "gilding the lily?"

    Is yours the "medium" or "large" mod? What are the pros and cons of each? In other words, why get a medium and not a large? Seems like it would afford a more secure grip.

    Well the main thing is it's designed for support hand only manipulation. Using this technique puts stress on the latch roll pin, leading to failure.

    They've redesigned their CH to distribute the stress throughout the body of the CH, and not the roll pin. They also beef it up by using billet aluminum.

    I happen to use the support hand method to manipulate the CH. I find that it feels much smoother, and more sturdy.

    The angle on the latch also makes it easier to charge the rifle. With the standard latch and the badger gen ii that I had on the rifle before, I found that I was kind of having to pull back and to the right to prevent my fingers from slipping off. With the gunfighter, the design is good enough to where you can just hook your index finger over the top and pull straight back. The latch itself is obviously a little thicker, and it provides a good amount of purchase for your finger.

    I have the medium latch on my rifle. It's more than sufficient, and worth every penny.

    I got the medium latch size. The large seems too long, like it would snag on gear/clothing.

    Its all personal preference, for me the medium has plenty of surface area to work with. The large may be better if your gonna wear gloves.
