Review the Strike Industries Charging Handle
This handle is 29.99 and comes in 3 Colors. I went with traditional Black. I Have never used a BCM or any other brand of charging handle than a standard GI type. I could never justify spending the money. So I saw this one and for a few bucks more than a standard I figured I would give it a try.
First impressions: The finish is fantastic. Very smooth and nice clean edges. The Engraved nomenclature is sharp and very focused.
As soon As I put it into the upper Receiver I could tell a difference. It has a very very smooth action to it. I didn't think I would notice that much but I was wrong. The latch has a crisp smooth release to it. Surprised that it was a big difference over what I normally use. The ergonomics of it was an upgrade, with the cross hatch on both sides gives a nice secure grip. Its very sturdy and seemingly has no flex/play.
My only negative so far is on Strike Industries website the FDE colored one doesn't look very FDE to me. But I did choose Black.
I haven't had a chance to take it to the range, so I will update that later, but I have no doubt that this will be a great item.
I have found the charging handle to be great for the money and will probably buy more in the future. I definitely recommend this to everyone.
Also shipping was Fast and Cheap. 3 days, through usps, I think it was 2.25 shipping.
