I am looking to get a new charging handle for my ar. I was thinking about going with a Bravo GunFighter Med. latch Charging Handle. Is there any reason I should pay the extra money and get a PRI gas buster or ACLM? I mean the gas blow back is mainly for using a suppressor right?? I am not running a suppressor btw.

Also is there any other CH I should think about instead of the gunfighter?

I'll put my 2 cents in and say you already got it figured out and go with the BCM Gunfighter Mod 4 (medium).

Super happy with the two I got, one for my LE6920 using EOTCh 557 with 3x mag fts, the other is on my Ruger Sr556 with ACOG.

BCM Gunfighter, hands down!

Puts my PRI big latch and badger latches to shame, they are not even close to being in the same class as the Gunfighter.

It's pretty evident as soon as you take the BCM out of the plastic your dealing with a serious piece of gear.

Ah, kool-aid sure is refreshing late in the afternoon. A year or two ago if it was not the PRI Gasbuster then you were using crap, banned from the cool kids table, and were going to blow your eyes out if you popped a primer, today it is BCM and the Gunfighter that has the flavor of the month award, and the blow your eyes out concern is suddenly gone.
Gotta love it.

By the way, both PRI GB and the Gunfighter are excellent CHs. I prefer the PRI because I do a lot of wildcat load work up and if there is anything to the gas diversion story then I want to take advantage of it because when doing unknown load work up a popped or blown primer is a very real possibility and if it does divert gas away from my eyes, I want that extra security. However, if the truth be known, both are flavors of the month and for 99% of AR users the standard CH is just fine. They worked pretty well for over 45 years with the standard CH but now it seems that if you don't have the latest flavor then you are headed for social ruin for certain and physical ruin is a posibility.
Why, I even ran a standard CH on my match rifle doing one sided charges for years and never tore up the standard CH. I must be lucky because to hear the chatter on the net that CH should have gone belly up the first time I tried to use it that way.

The $20 extra you could put towards ammo is well worth it for the BCM CH. In an excercise at a class last week we had to clear malfunctions from a line of 10 different rifles. It made me realize how nice the BCM is to have when picking up ones with standard handles. Then again, most people shoot less than 500 rounds a year off a bench so in that case it really wouln't matter.

The typical bullshit response often found here.

Two years ago the BCM handle wasn't around. Now it is and it's a great improvement over the previous offerings. All this "kool-aid" or "flavor of the month" BS get's old. Try to start looking at things objectively.

only have one, but I love my Mod 4. I got it for the design. I got it when it first came out before it was cool..or before every one had it to rave about

I am buying this CH for my Mega/Noveske build. I am in the process of a beat up/budget build. I am using my current stock charging handle for that rifle. I am getting the Magpul BAD and some ear protection so I wanted to go ahead and get it to save on shipping. and its my rifle and money and I see fit to deck it out how I want. lol

Thanks everyone. I already ordered the mod 4 gunfighter! but I kinda wish I would have went ahead and bought the Vltor modstock since it is onsale.

Well, I haven't used the BCM GF, but i have used the Armament Dynamics Ambi charging handle and am very happy with it. Anywhere I grab it and pull the charging handle comes back. It is not cheap, but when you see one in person, you get what you pay for.

My only quibble, and it's a small one, is that i can't use it on my dedicated 22lr upper. The spring on the 22lr bolt isn't enough for the mechanism to pull against, works like gangbusters on the 5.56 though. Replaced my PRI big latch and never looked back.

YMMV
