In the BCMGunfighter™ the tiny roll pin found in traditional charging handles is no longer a weak point. The BCMGunfighter features a stronger tactical latch system that will stay intact even under repeated support side only manipulation.
With the force kept inside the body of the handle, when the handle is pulled directly to the rear, it moves directly to the rear and does not angle off to the outboard side, resulting in a much smoother operation.
Charging Handle Latch System
Featuring internal redesigns, the charging handle/latch system directs the force off the roll pin and into the body of the charging handle during support-hand only manipulations.
This new design has a built in backstop engineered into the extended latch and into the charging handle. As the latch is opened, its travel is limited by these flat surface backstops. With this travel limiting feature, the stress is taken off the roll pin, and is now redirected into the entire body of the charging handle.
