The HABU MOD 1 Advanced Engagement Charging Handle allows for robust charging of the AR-15, while simultaneously integrating a cheek riser. The HABU’s unique form factor is designed for the non-dominant hand to charge the rifle, much like a semi-automatic handgun, using your full grasp & hand. This design is completely ambidextrous, with no small latches to worry about engaging. Proper cheek weld can also be attained, without the use of stock mounted cheek risers, which often interfere with operating the charging handle. The HABU works with any commercially available AR-15 buttstock, both collapsible & fixed. The cheek riser’s placement can also be adjusted front to back to suite the shooter’s needs & comfort. When shooting suppressed, gases exiting the rear almost entirely negated. The handle is machined from 7075 T6 aluminum, with the cheek riser being molded from a matte black polymer.
