Airborne Charging Handle (ACH)

Full Description

The Airborne Charging Handle (ACH) was developed at the request of an elite organization famous for its expertise in aerial insertion. The organization requested a lower profile lever design to reduce the chances of snagging. The ACH’s lower profile design is especially ideal for rifles where the primary sighting system is a red dot or similar low profile optic system. The ambidextrous ACH is 3D machined from a solid block of aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum. Shortened levers are dual contoured with gently concaved radius cuts in the vertical and horizontal planes. The handling surfaces of the levers are checkered for confident operation while wearing gloves. A taller fence at the rear of the ACH aids in redirecting gas blow back when shooting with short barreled and suppressed weapon systems. The ACH and its components are Type 3 Hardcoat anodized and are available in Black and DDC (Desert Dirt Color).

Best CH for supressed work - matt

As others have stated this does more for shooting supressed than the competition because it seals the lip of the upper receiver. You'll feel noticeably less gas. Other CHs are gimmicky compared to the Geissele.

Five stars! - Jean-Luc

I know, it says 4, but that's just because this doesn't work well with an iPad.
The charging handle is extremely well crafted, with lots of attention to details. Finish is impeccable. The great Geissele reputation didn't just fall out of the sky. It was earned, and you know how, when you hold one of their products. This company seems to have outstanding QC.

Have two now - Todd

These things are pretty awesome. They dont snag on kit like other charging handles do that are way bigger. I had the raptor on my and always seemed to snag on something. This charging handle is big enough to clear malfunctions and strong enough to motor if you have a bolt over ride. This is top notch. If I replace something on my rifle its going to be better and tougher than what was on there and I can always count on Geissele to fill that role.

It's a Geissele Product - Caleb

There is no charging handle better than it. I would never buy any other type of charging and that's because the ACH is the best charging handle for shooting suppressed.

A perfect addition - Scott

I have them on my AR's. They ACH cycles smoothly and is easy to grip and use. The raised rear helps when I run my suppressor. I had friends notice this and they purchased ACH for their suppressed weapons too. Once again a quality product filling a needed niche.

Perfect - JD

Wanted an Ambi charging handle for my LWRC. The DDC is a great finish and matches well. This compact handle is perfect with a scope. The machining is superb and feels like a piece of quality. Another great product from Geissele!

Nice Charging Handle but... - Shawn

This is a great charging handle and performs very well. The only problem is with MBUS Pro sights the lip on the handle, that raps around the upper receiver for a tight fit, hits my sights and the aluminum on the charging handle is starting to get damaged because of that.

It's perfect - grant

I got the black on and I love it. Period. The texture on the levers feel great and it cycles smoothly without grit. Very well made! The smaller levers are less likely to snag on gear and are ideal for rifles using red dots or iron sights and for right handed shooters, etc. If I were running a scope, or for shooters who are truly ambi or left handed I would go for the larger super charging handle to get that extra clearance on the forward assist.

Best Charging Handle -the Best! - DJ

I recently remodeled an old M16 A1 that I have owned since 1984. As valuable as this NFA boolit squirter is, there is positively NO blow back running an AAC can in front of a 9" AAC factory upper. So, the Geissele Airborne Charging Handle will be on it indefinitely for keeps. And the wannabe compliments just keep on coming how slick it operates with quickie mag dumps. Go Geissele!

Awesome - whisky alpha

First Geissele charging handle, hands down love it. Running on a 10.5 300 blk w/Silencer Co Omega 9k. Major difference with regard to gas blow back compared to the BCM Gunfighter Mod 4 charging handle. This will replace the other BCM and Milspec charging handles shortly. Up until now, I have not used an ambi charging handle and can not compare.

Awesome Quality - Ricko

This is my second charging handle from Geissele. Top quality, very smooth operating. Will buy more for my other AR's.
