      Hi Chris,

      As of now we haven’t had a lot of demand to make OD Green. It is and will continue to be one that we might introduce if the demand grows.

      As of now, our charging handle will not fit the Sig 716. We hope to make one in the future.

    5 out of 5 The Raptor is a serious charging handle upgrade.

    I was running the stock charging handle that came with my LWRC and then I tried the Raptor. The Raptor is a serious upgrade in quality and functionality. It works flawlessly in my gun. I am looking forward to more AXTS innovations.

    5 out of 5 Quick Charge

    This is truly the fastest handle and accessable from all angles that I have used since the Mattel toy of 1966. Large enough to control and get a full charge length. Great piece of equipment.

    5 out of 5 Necessary upgrade.

    This is the best charging handle out there. It should be standard on AR’s. It not only makes the rifle ambidextrous, it improves function for the right-handed shooter as well. Very, very well made and thought out. Unbelievably clever design and well worth the money. Thank you!!

    5 out of 5 Another happy customer!

    I have a Stag LH rifle and the mil-spec CH that came with it activates from the same side (left side) that the forward assist is on, making it near-impossible to blade and just awkward to use. I put my Raptor on a year ago and have been extremely happy ever since. I don’t think I could ever go back, it’d almost be like trying to run my rifle without a grip. Whether I like it or not, I’m a customer for life because every AR-pattern rifle I have will need one of these on it.

    Machining is top-notch, anodizing is nice and durable, fit/finish is excellent, and it works repeatedly without flaw.

    5 out of 5 Essential for left and right alike

    I went through a patrol rifle class instructed by and aimed for right-handed officers. In order to keep my left hand on the controls and charge the weapon with my right on a standard handle required an awkward and unnatural upside down pull. The second day of training I brought in my Raptor handle from my personal AR and requested to use it for the rest of the week. The instructors took no issue whatsoever and one of them stated he had one on his personal weapon just for the better grip even though he was right-handed. The rest of the course was a breeze and I finished first place, almost a minute faster than second. I will be purchasing another to keep in my duty rifle.

    5 out of 5 Best charging handle available

    This ambidextrous charging handle is awesome. It also seems to be twice as strong as a standard charging handle. I liked it so much that I bought another for no apparent reason other than I have to have two of the best.

    • J.W.

      No, I purchased a POF Tomahawk that just locked up the carrier. The nose below the hole for the gas tube is to short causing to skip over the front of the carrier binding it up solid. I would like to try the Raptor. Does anybody no if it works in the SigSauer 716 ?

    (verified owner)

    Over engineered…which is never a bad thing in the firearms world. You can compare this to a BCM Gunfighter and see the obvious advantage. The BCM is great, but the Raptor is on another level. This is an extremely innovative product that has seemingly went without recognition.

    5 out of 5 Worth the extra money

    Works flawlessly. Huge improvement over a standard charging handle, great grip, super smooth handling no matter if you palm it, use it one handed from the side or in a traditional way with one finger on each side. It’s really expensive for a charging handle, but I don’t regret spending that much money on it at all. Feels great and works great, the difference between this and a stock charging handle is day and night. The Raptor actually makes chambering a round fun.
