BCM SHOT Show Countdown – BCM Gunfighter Ambidextrous Charging Handle

We’ve already introduced you to a couple of Bravo Company USA’s 2013 line of rifles and accessories including HSP’s The Jack Carbine as well as the BCM RECCE-14, Mk2. Earlier today, we even debuted the BCM Comp. Turns out, today is a two-for-one with the BCM Gunfighter Ambidextrous Charging Handle.

What you are looking at here is an Ambi variant of the famous (and highly effective) BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle. There’s not much to say. It’s got all of the advantages of the BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle but it’s ambidextrous so you can release the latch with either hand.

    Looks outstanding. I’d love one with a Mod 4 sized latch on the left side, and a Mod 5 latch on the right.

      I agree as a lefty we have been left out for a long time now its great to see companies making stuff for us

        Bah, southpaws taking up all the goods, haha. Tho it would be useful when shooting on your “weak” side for a righty

    Yes. I’ve been waiting forever on this. Now they just need to start selling them.

    Little too little too late?

    I’ve got three of Rainier’s Raptors now, and I’d hard pressed to change them or buy anything else… Unless the BCM version is significantly cheaper.

  5. I consider Paul at BCM a personal friend and he has been a loyal sponsor of my show TacTV from day one – BCM releases product when it has met Paul’s standards and not one minute sooner; that’s why when you see something new from BCM it is always well thought out and designed and is among the best in its class – not many companies can make that claim

    Well done BCM – once again

    Great for bi-lateral work. Why didn’t someone think of this 40 years ago?

  7. Riceball says:

    As a right handed person could somebody please explain to me the significance of a left handed/ambi-dextrious AR charging handle? Is a regular AR charging handle really that difficult for southpaws to use? I’m not criticizing here but asking an honest question, I can’t, for the life of me, think of what the issue is with the charging handle and southpaws. Obviously there is otherwise we wouldn’t be seeing these types of aftermarket charging handles but I’m honestly curious as to what the issue is exactly.

    • Paul says:

      Riceball,

      I guess it all depends on how you use your charging handle. Some people still remove the weapon from their shoulder to use the charging handle. However many people, especially when reloading, like to switch magazines and then quickly retract the charging handle (to release it and chamber a new round) using their non-pistol grip hand…..all while keeping the weapon’s buttstock in their shoulder pocket. That can be done fairly easily if you are right handed but not so easily if you are left handed because the handle’s release mechanism is on the opposite side for a Southpaw. An ambi charging handle fixes that for us Southpaws.

      Comprende?
