BCM GunFighter different mod depending on if the rifle is scoped or not.

The most popular is probably the BCM gunfighter, but the best is probably the Raptor

BCM so far, but have not used the Raptor.


If any of you play COD Black OPs 2.....doesn't the charging handle on the M27 look like the Raptor?

^ i was gonna quote but the code for the picture was crazy long. But yeah that's the raptor. Rainier arms was featured in the game.

I personally prefer tying a piece of cord around gas-key, dangling the cord out of the back of the receiver, and attaching some type of handle so I can charge my AR like I'm starting a chainsaw or a lawnmower or something.

1. Rainier Raptor
2. BCM w/ Med latch
3. Normal 'mil-spec' shit

The raptor is truly ambidextrous which is nice. If you have ever held one, they feel extremely solid. The right latch is larger than the left to properly compensate for the forward assist being there. The ONLY issue I have is that I run a magnifier and it makes it a little cramped on the right side whenever the magnifier is flipped down but I typically charge from the left anyways so it is a very minor issue and if i needed to charge from the right, I can just come from underneath. I honestly think the design is very well thought out. I do not own one but I have played around with one for a few hours and gave it a pretty close inspection.... i will own one eventually. A+ shit

The BCM is half the price of the raptor so you are going to get a lot of claims that it is superior bc the higher volume of people that run one... it is a very well designed CH but is definitely out performed by the Rainier Arms. People don't want to pay the price required to get the best but then they want to claim that the discounted item that they bought is somehow far superior to the item that they didn't want to pay for.... I call it PSA syndrome.

Just because something is more expensive obviously doesn't mean it is better, but price aside, the Rainier CH feels and functions better.

If you are running a suppressed DI rifle, the PRI charging handle is a pretty good choice.

Yea, I thought it was pretty cool. Didn't know if it was supposed to be the Raptor or just something similar. I wonder if Rainier knows about this?

My favorite is the BCM. I am interested in the Raptor but not sure on its durability.

I highly considered the BCM but the Raptor just has the space laser cool factor. I found out it was in the game after I ordered it, which makes me all the cooler
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 9:46:31 AM EST
I prefer the BCM Gunfighter (mod 3, because I'm a clutz and need all the latch I can find), but the Raptor is an excellent option.
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 9:51:22 AM EST
I've heard good things about the Raptor, but I think my favorite would have to be
the BCM Gunfighter Mod 4.

I'm a lefty and I'm pretty sold on the Raptor

Lol thanks for the correction

I have only used the BCM Gunfighter and the stock job.

There's no doubt that the BCM makes the CH very easy to grasp and function. However...

The port side lever sticks out like a straightpull bolt handle and gets me in the back when carrying the rifle "biathlon-style". I'm intrigued with the ambi Raptor.

They found out when the game came out. Saw it on their Facebook page. They were asking people for a screenshot to confirm.
