Welcome to the user error broken charging handle club. I’m a member too

Double check the gas tube too you might have wrecked it as well. It wasn’t obvious in my case. With charging handle forward see if the bcg will go home under gravity. If it hangs up without interference from the ch the gas tubes toast too.

Yeah that was slightly messed up. A bit more resistance than their should be. Ordered a new one from IWI just to be safe.

FUBARed mine as well. Bullpup Armory hooked me up with two and their ambi guide plate to install ambi charging handles on my X95 before I sold it. Only have single charging handles on my SARs as I run cables through the right slot one one of them and I like to keep things typical across platforms so no ambi on either SAR.

So this is taking place gunsmithing. Got it.

Watch this vid. You need to remove the charging handle on both x95 and SAR before you turn the barrel lock.

Got the new gas cylinder yesterday. BCG drops right in. I pretty much have the rifle in good condition. Fixed the CH in a vise. Still going to get a new one and maybe run this one on the right side.

Just a side note. Put in a Geissele Trigger bow. Took the rifle to have the trigger pull checked.........4 pounds. That’s perfect for me. No need for a 350.00 trigger pack.

Our Switchback Folding charging handle for the X95 will be out shortly if you can wait a couple more weeks.
