The silencer-optimized Raptor SD ambidextrous charging handle features a ported shaft designed to redirect gasses down and forward, away from the shooter's face when shooting suppressed. The Raptor SD retains all of the revolutionary design and function characteristics of the original Raptor including a well thought-out ambidextrous design that allows rapid charging of the weapon from either strong or support side. Handles are textured and slightly extended on each side to provide a secure grip no matter the conditions.
The Raptor SD charging handle takes the extra back pressure that is generated when shooting suppressed and redirects it down and forward, essentially preventing it from coming back into your face. This is accomplished by a series of 12 scientifically engineered vents in the shaft of the charging handle. This is a patented design (US 10,203,174) and is a novel and effective way to solve the problem.
