Recommendations for a good PCC charging Handle?

Recommended Posts

I recently shot a classifier match and one of the stages had a unloaded gun start from a table with the reload also from the table.

I am currently using a BCM mod 4 medium charging handle and am looking for something larger and possibly long enough to prop the gun up a little bit to get a better start on it.

Any recommendations on what people think is the best one to use right now?

Do you have (even a mild) issue with gas to the face?

 

If so, Raptor-SD. I ran them on my suppressed 556 ARs and loved them, tried it on the 9mm blowback and it got rid of what little gas to the face I was getting.

BCM does a good job of preventing gas to the face.

Looking for something with a larger latch that would only be used on a competition PCC.

I’m running the Blackhawk latchless

larger than stock, totally ambidextrous, and has gas block like the much more expensive charging handles

I'm running a Ambi Style Raptor from a veteran owned American Company.  The ambi handle props the gun up slightly.

 

I also use BCM Large latch charging handle on my daughter's PCC

I am using a Next level, it has pretty big handles.

I chose it because they also make one for my s&w 15-22, if I ever get rich enough to buy some upgrades for it.

The best PCC charging handle comes free on side/charging uppers!

I run a Devil Dog side charger on my PCC and I like it

I like it but I'm trying to keep the weight of the gun down.

A few weeks ago I was on the BCM website and it looked like they found a case of Raptors buried in thier warehouse and were selling them cheap.  I’d get one of those.  Almost bought a backup for me.  Otherwise I have an old style ambi BCM that is on its second gun and treats me well enough that I don’t see any reason to change.  EDIT TO ADD:  just checked and it looks like they sold out at BCM.

I saved a few dollars and went with the Raptor LT, have them on both of my ARs. I think the LT model is one of the better values on the market right now. It works just as well as the all metal Raptor IMO.

After reading all the recommendations I ordered a Raptor LT  from Optics Planet.

Looks to be one of the better and lighter ones out there.

If you are military or veteran Raptor offers a 25% discount if you order direct

Good choice! It should serve you well! I haven't had any issues with mine.
