I have switched to BCM's. I use the mediums on my patrol style rifles and large on my bench/varmint guns.

Really?

If that's true, I'd be interested in some more details.
It's been a couple years since I've bought any BCM charging handles.


The new BCM Mod 4b has a smaller latch than the reg Mod 4.
I have one on a ar9 pistol only because it looks better on the smaller ar's.

The Geisselle charging handles came.

Wow! I didn't expect them to be this nice.

Bigger, smoother, ambidextrous. They look very strong and durable, too.

I don't know if I will get rid of any of the BCM handles but I won't be buying anything other than Geisselle, going forward.

Yeah, the Geissele SCH / ACH is very well executed - I love how the whole handle / latch moves, unlike others with just the latch portion.

I liked the BCMs but they started pinched my fingers from time to time. I know they have changed their design as well but I am already "all in" with SCH on scoped ARs and ACH on RDS ARs.

I am still a fan of the BCM medium handle

Just picked up one of the less expensive Radian Raptors. Seems just as sturdy as the other one. I’ll check in if it breaks.

At the time this thread started, Geissele was still running their Black Friday sale, with ACH and SCH models at $49.00.

It was a buy-cheap-stack-deep opportunity for quality charging handles.

For the price, it is hard to beat the BCM. I have a couple,(large size) and really like them.
