Good thinking.

That's a whole lot simpler than my extended recoil rod modification.

Looks good, I like the fact that people are out there trying to improve the conversion system.

Looks like I will be redoing my entire upper because of you guys. Anything else coming up?

The main problem I have with my Ciener conversion kit is the occasional empty case getting stock between the charging handle and the bolt face.

So put me down for one of these along with your bolt hold open kit and 3 mag conversions.

So the way I'm reading your original post is that this charging handle only works with dedicated .22 uppers. It won't work with my conversion kit inserted into a normal AR?

I absolutely love my CMMG kits. I had to buy my wife one for her AR. We have put literally 10's of 1,000's of rounds through them. The only jam we have had is the one you describe where a round lodges above the kit in the charging handle. If this fixes that I'm game for 2 handles.

Thanks CMMG!

No, they are just stating they are about to release a dedicated rifle. If a standard charging handle will work with it, this one will work with it.

I'm only going off the picture and my experience with conversions vs. dedicated upper so this may be wrong. Dedicated uppers don't normally have a gas tube. Dedicated upper charging handles don't have the hole in the front for the gas tube. If I'm correct, the charging handle above won't work in a 5.56 upper with a conversion because the charging handle will hit the gas tube.

That is a great idea CMMG. I will be ordering two of these to replace the charging handle's in my Spikes ST-22.

Do you need to design one for the drop in? Doesn't the gas tube create the same effect you are trying to achieve? It seems the problem lies with the standard cut charging handle used in dedicated uppers without the gas tube which allows an empty space for the round to get caught. (You have solved this with the above design/photo). With the drop in and gas tube this space is taken up - doing the same thing. I don't think the round can get caught in one, but didn't go check.

If it can get caught when the .22 bolt moves to the rear (in the CH between the end of the gas tube and the top of the bolt) you could fill that space in the CH.

So... does it have a "protrusion"?
