Well, I'm currently enrolled in the WECSOG program and seeing someone else could do it, I did as well.  

I took a silicone O-ring and crazy glued it (after cleaning ALL oils off that area) to the inside of the charging handle where it meets the rear of the receiver.  I can tell you that of all the things I have done with the gun, this has proved to be the most worthwhile endeavor.  So far it is holding up nicely.  Just a quick note, don't cut the ring until AFTER it is in place.  Trying to maneuver it when it is that small would be a first class bitch!

Okay, so tell us.  Share the knowledge!

Reread above.  It is the gas buster O-ring that keeps the oil and hot gases off your face.

OOps.  Sorry, pulled an all nighter.  I misread your post.

What is the primary benefit - gas seal, or impact buffer between the handle & upper when releasing the charging handle to load a round (or both)?

Pics?

I'm curious....Have you also tested with a suppressor?

This thread is worthless without pictures. [:D]

Guys, I just got back from a 4.5hr sitting with the dentist.  I'm in a bad way and waiting for the narcotics to take affect.  I'll do pics, but it is just a black silicon o-ring crazy glued in place.  It really keeps the crapola off the face.  I'll get it tested on a suppressed AR this week maybe.  I'll just have to chase up my friend with the REAL M4 select fire, suppressed.  Damn, I'm starting to get a woody thinking about it!  He doesn't have this and when I've shot it I wished he did.

I have been doing something simular with all of my ARs for the last 5 or 6 years....I have been using RTV Silicon and I spread it in the back of the charging handle (the area where you can see the gap)....I use a plastic knive to get it smooth and flush with the charging handle...Let it dry and if there is any excess, just cut it off with an exacto knife....

Here is a pic, the RTV Silicon is red (only color I could get when I did this gun) but it also comes in black:

Sorry I don't have any pics from the top.
