Driven by over a decade of feedback from real-world combat operations, BCM has made continual design refinements and structural improvements to the charging handle in the M4 and M16 to address the current manual of arms for the weapon system.
Optimizing the contours into a snag-free profile that facilitates immediate manipulation with an end user's reaction side grip, the range of BCM Charging
MK 2 RECEIVER OPTIMIZED
The U.S. patents pending BCM Mod 3 Charging Handle now features upper and lower and side exhaust channels to vent gas from the chamber away from the shooter during operation of the weapon. While these channels are optimized for the BCM MK2 Upper receiver, they still provide improved gas diversion on all Mil-Spec upper receivers.
Redesigned to eliminate the load on the pivot pin and keep the energy from charging close to the centerline of the carbine/rifle, BCM Mk 2 Charging Handles provides an uninterrupted engagement surface with no pinch points to catch skin or other material that could induce a malfunction during a time-is-life manipulation.
A patented ambidextrous design with simplified mechanism for robust performance, each Charging Handle is crafted with MIL-SPEC grade forgings and machined from 7075 T6 aluminum, with a hard coat anodized finish per Mil-A-8625F, Type III, Class 2.
