Charging Handle upgrade



Log in to see fewer ads
Good morning, I recently pickup up a new M&P15-22 from Cabella's
The sale price of 299 is actually what got my attention.
Havent had the time yet to try it out.
I'd like to inquire and see who makes a better quality charging handle?
I know this gun is mostly polymer, but the handle seems extra cheesy.

Appreciate the help guys

Dave

Tacicool or next level. Used to be a guy on Ebay who made ambi for 15 bucks. I bought one years ago. They are all 50+ now.

Radian makes a really nice ambidextrous one, comes also with a very nice ambi-safety.

https://radianweapons.com/raptor-m-p-15-22

They are for sale at MSRP on that site, but you can find it for around $50ish for the pair elsewhere. Very well made and good quality, I use the "normal sized" ones on all of my AR15's.

Another recommendation for Radian.

I have their charging handle as well. Good solid piece and came with their safety. The safety on the 15-22 is specific to the gun, no AR15 safeties will not work so you get two upgrades in one.

3rd vote for Radian. You can get the package deal of ambi selector/safety switch and CH for around $75.00. Great upgrades for the 15-22!

I am using the Next Level Armament "M&P 15-22 AMBI CHARGING HANDLE", and am very happy with it.

Radian here too. Mimics the larger AR platform rifles I have, works great.

Anyone here know of sources for the Radian Raptor package deal at something other than MSRP?

Swapped out the OEM polymer charging handle on my S&W M&P 15-22 for an aluminum ambi charging handle...



Cheap polymer CH that I replaced...

Bought the Radian which also had an ambi-safety in the package sale, ran it last night in a short 3 stage steel match & this satan-hander says TY men, a nice addition to my 15-22.

Had that NLA charging handle and didnít care for it. Swapped for the Radian Raptor/Talon combo.
