Forward Controls Introduces MCX Variant Ambidextrous Charging Handle

Forward Controls is proud to introduce the MCX variant of its Ambidextrous Charging Handle – FCD (ACF). The ACF is a monolithic charging handle that retains the dual latches of the SIG MCX factory charging handle, and incorporates an oversized gas fence. This unique horseshoe-shaped fence is specifically designed to conform to the upper receiver and effectively divert gas away from the shooter’s face. It is compatible with the MCX Spear, Spear LT, Virtus, and Rattler (5.56mm, 300 BO, and 7.62x39mm).

ACF’s shape is based on the M16 charging handle TDP, and retains the TDP design’s gently swept back T handle that are less likely to snag on webbing, the T handle is short but thick to provide more surface area, and features a curved and serrated back strap for the user’s thumb.  ACF’s latches recess into the T handle when mortared, this is designed to withstand repeated mortaring without damaging the charging handle. 

By combining superior functionality with innovative design elements, the MCX variant of the ACF represents a significant step forward in our mission to provide shooters with the best possible user experience. Whether you’re a right-handed or left-handed shooter, you can count on the ACF to deliver exceptional performance and reliability in any situation. ASF-MCX is machined from 7075 aluminum, ACF is Type III hard coat anodized, and available in black and FDE. As always, proudly made in the USA.

    Aren’t the listed Sig guns non-di designs? Is gas blowback an issue?

    Finally, a dual latch charging handle option.

    As far as I know, all other MCX aftermarket charging handles only have one latch. That’s why many say not to use them on Rattlers.
