Radian Raptor Charging Handle Black + NP3 556
- Maximum Purchase:
- 5 units
This is the original Radian Raptor charging handle but with a shaft coated in the world famous NP3 finish. Handles are left black anodized.
The magic here is in the handles. Ambidextrous in design, both left and right side handles are extended as well as textured with vertical serrations to provide a secure grip no matter the conditions. They are extended enough for good purchase even around low mounted scopes and other equipment, but not so much that they are a nuisance.
Above: The Raptor charging handle is approx. 0.517" wider than the original AR15 charging handle. Note the Raptor's right side handle is extended more than the left to clear the forward assist button.
The right-side lever is extended slightly more than the left to account for the forward assist button on most AR15 upper receivers. This well thought-out ambidextrous design allows rapid charging of the weapon from either strong or support side.
This Raptor Charging Handle is precision manufactured from the same high-end aircraft grade 7075 aluminum that quality MIL-SPEC uppers are made from and then hard anodized. The Radian Raptor Ambi Charging Handle comes with a limited lifetime warranty, and is 100% designed and manufactured in the USA.
Whether you are getting parts together for a build or are just looking for an upgrade to your current rifle, the Raptor Ambidextrous Charging Handle by Radian Weapons is a solid choice that won’t let you down.
Above: The Raptor charging handle weighs 1.3 ounces.
For use in AR15/M4/M16 pattern rifles.
Not compatible with AR10 rifles. For AR10 see here AR10 Charging Handles
Combining the Raptor's ambidextrous design and right side lever that is slightly extended (slightly more than the left) to clear the forward assist button on traditional upper receivers works very well on a rifle that has a Slick Side Upper. This type of upper receiver lacks the forward assist protrusion on the right side and when used with a Raptor charging handle it's a pleasure to be able to work the bolt from the right side - something that the M-14 shooters have been doing all along!
A slick side upper with no forward assist button compliments the Raptor ambidextrous design allowing super easy charging from the right side
