Won t Interfere With Optic or Other Gear - Still Easy To Operate
Geissele developed its Airborne Charging Handle (ACH) with a low-profile lever that’s less likely to get snagged on vegetation and other gear. Geissele designed the ACH at the specific request of an "elite" unit of the United States armed forces so it won’t interfere with a red dot sight or similar low-mounted optic.
The ambidextrous Airborne Charging Handle’s low profile doesn’t mean you have to compromise accessibility or ease of use. The ACH's shortened levers have gently concaved radius cuts in both the vertical and horizontal planes so the hand can get a secure purchase. Geissele even gave the ACH lever checkered surfaces to ensure a positive gripping surface, even when your hands are wet or you’re wearing gloves.
- Reliable ambidextrous operation
- Extra-strong machined 7075 T6 aluminum
- Type III hardcoat anodized
- Available in basic Black or Geissele’s Desert Dirt Color (DDC)
As an added benefit, the Geissele Airborne Charging Handle comes with a raised lip at the aft end that redirects gas blow back away from the shooter when using short-barreled or suppressed weapon systems.
