The Raptor-SL charging handle is based on the original Raptor Ambidextrous Charging Handle. With slim-line handles, the Raptor-SL is perfect for shooters who require an ultra low-profile, anti-snag design. The Raptor-SL 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 to provide a secure grip no matter the conditions.

The slim-line dimensions actually bring the Raptor SL back down to approximately the width of the original AR15 charging handle. That is one of the few similarities since the Raptor is stronger, grippier and ambidextrous.
Above: The Raptor SL (SD-SL shown) charging handle is roughly the same width as the standard AR15 charging handle - within one-tenth of an inch.
A charging handle with slimmer handles should weigh less and the Raptor SL charging handle is no exception.
Above: The Raptor SL charging handle weighs 1.2 ounces, 0.1 ounce less than the original Raptor charging handle.
