Recommendations for a good PCC charging Handle?

Yes, they will work fine.  You just won’t be cool like us, lol.  I’d recommend starting with what you have and then playing with different versions that you come across at the range.  Where you find the difference is when you need to clear a jam on the clock, etc.  Everybody will have a different preference, and then you’ll get used to what you train with.  

 

Thats why I was asking.

i just got my PCC on Thursday and shot a match Friday night....TOO much fun!

i quickly realized that I miss the larger charging handle like on my ARs....so I’m getting a bigger one.

Well, this is the best charging handle I’ve found.

Is that one of those rigs that goes out front in the hand guard?

Tell me more!

I have been running the Next Level Armament charging handle.

I originally choose it because it was a few dollars cheaper than many others, but mostly because they also make one for my S&W M&P 15-22.

 

I often see many people recomend the Radian Raptor, and I know it's a quality product.

They just started making one for the S&W M&P 15-22 so I thought I would grab one to try out on my PCC for a while.

 

If I don't like it I can put it onto another gun.

 

Here is a comparison of the width of the two, I think I will probably end up sticking with the NLA after the test period, because I like the extra width, as it helps hold the gun up off of tables etc.

But I will try the Raptor for a while.

I may be a little late here, but I just noticed that the two latch handles on the Raptor are different sizes.

 

Why?

The right latch is full size, the left latch is slightly lower profile so that it is less "pokey" when you have your rifle slung over your left shoulder. That is an important feature to me because I spend a lot of time running with my rifle slung on my back in Run n Gun matches, so a full size charging latch would stab me in the back non stop. But it would be far less important to a USPSA PCC competitor.

I figured as much.

So I am guessing that all the uspsa guys still like them because they want the same latch on everything.

I was looking for something else when I seen this post, so I thought I would update.

 

The Radian Raptor didn't last long, because the handles are tiny compared to the Next level Armament.

The NLA was back on after on a couple times shooting the gun.

As goofy as they look.....the tec-latch from the folks at techwearusa is actually not a bad option!!

I just switched mine out to a BCM Ambi Mod 3X3, it’s huge compared to the standard BCM I was using before. Should be real nice for unloaded starts.
