I did a build last week and installed a Gunfighter Charging handle in it. I was very impressed. When pulling back on the left side of the 'T" the gun feels like it's a side charger. You don't get that feeling that the handle is twisting or torqueing like I did with the handle with the PRI big latch I have.
When the latch is pulled back it goes against the back of the handle instead of putting the load on the roll pin. I have seen pictures of a few of the standard handles with the pin ripped out from doing left side charging drills.
I ended up ordering 3 more to replace my other ones. This is a great product, I just wish they would stop coming out with this stuff as my Credit card has run screaming from the house.

I also liked it more that the PRI one.

I would like to do "side charging" but I am afraid I will bend the charging handle. Are gunfighter charging handles stronger?
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 1:51:57 AM EDT
yes

Just installed one and it feels so solid. Works great with the BAD lever also.

I too plan on ordering a few, I  have heard nothing but good about them!!

I side charge mine and it feels rock solid.  Very well made product.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 4:59:44 AM EDT
Same here, great product strong and solid as hell.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 5:08:18 AM EDT
Agreed.   Very happy with the purchase so far.  It is much smoother than what I was using before.

Does anyone have a link to where you can get one of these?

And will these fit on any upper? Or only the BCM uppers?

Thanks

I wondered when a thread like this would pop up.

Will fit in any upper.

You can pick one up Here

I have a LMT tac latch and find it to be a good charging handle.  Has anyone run both the LMT and the BCM and how did they compare?

Yeah there's been a couple of threads about them. I love mine for my 15's. Just got one this weekend delivered for my AR10 and it works great, I'm sure they're still in stock if anyone is interested.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 7:25:46 AM EDT
I have a few and they will soon replace all the others when funds allow.
Give one a try.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 7:32:28 AM EDT
This is the next upgrade for my AR's. I've heard nothing but good reports ref these BCM Gunfighter charging handles.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 7:54:18 AM EDT
Ever since I put one in mine, I have been side charging with my left hand. No problems whatsoever and it feels very sturdy.

I have a PRI GB now, how does the Gunfighter do with suppressed weapons compared to the GB? Is a suppressed version in the works?

I need to order one. After I pay off my credit card from the last 2 things I bought
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 10:54:08 AM EDT

Link Posted: 3/8/2010 11:01:01 AM EDT
I got the mid size and installed in my midlength, like it very well.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 11:50:54 AM EDT
Do like and it's priced right, gen 4.

Mod. 4 Thread I posted in GD

I personally don't really care for (even the medium) oversized latch for off-range use.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 3:46:15 PM EDT
I prefer the LMT for duty and SHTF rifles to awnser the persons question above. The LMT is also solid and is a little more low profile. Less likely to snag on something, but just oversized enough to be an advantage.

I got the Mod 4 when they came out.  you can't beat the BCM Gunfighter
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 2:47:22 AM EDT
I got the Mod 3 (large latch).  I have a Magpul ACS stock on my rifle, which is a bit wider than the standard stock, and the latch sticks out in the perfect position for me with it.  I'd get a Mod 4 (Med latch) if I were running a standard width stock.  I was skeptical about spending the money at first, but I wouldn't run a rifle without one now.

Thanks for the info I am pretty much sold on this and will be ordering one today!
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 8:46:19 AM EDT
I've done many side charges with a standard charging handle, no problems.  I understand the design of the BCM CH, and plan on getting one, just saying that my standard CH feels pretty solid in most cases.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 11:43:37 AM EDT
I love mine, but I bought the large and it tends to snag on thing sometimes... and i've been pinched by it a couple of times. But thats mainly cause of the user, not the product.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 12:48:48 PM EDT
mmmm I hope they make the BCM CH with a GB mod that would be sweet. cause thats what i need.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 1:46:23 PM EDT
I recommend the Mod4 version to most users. It is great for scopes that is tight to the upper and most other applications. The Mod3 sticks out a little to far for me but I'm still running it on one of my 15's. I bought both versions to try them out and prefer the Mod4.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 2:46:11 PM EDT
Having run tac latch's for years without breaking one, I tried a GF.  I still torque it to the right side fo teh rifle, but no issues with it (no issues with reular CH's either).  However, if you price out a tac latch and a CH, teh price is pretty close to the GF.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 2:47:20 PM EDT
Just installed the mod 4 on my rifle and it works great, makes me wonder why I didnt get one sooner.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 3:26:23 PM EDT
I just installed mine today and my upper receiver doesn't like it. It's very rough and is all ready scratched to shit. In fact, I'm pretty sure I can smell smoke when I pull it back and It's very wet. The upper is a VLTOR MUR. Just weird. I think I need to shot it and maybe it'll help. I replaced a gas buster, and it was smooth as silk so I dunno.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 3:29:02 PM EDT
Love my mod 4 charging handles. turns the AR15 into a true feeling side charger.  The mod3 would've been too large and intrusive for me since I already feel a slight poke from the mod4 on the side of my ribcage right through my shirt  when not wearing any gear.
