This reinforced charge handle is a direct replacement for the stock unit that is prone to bending over time, especially if the gun has received power upgrades. This part is made from 7075-T6 grade aluminum (AKA The Good Stuff), and black anodized. 7075 aluminum is about 85% stronger than 6061 aluminum, and we also added extra material to eliminate the possibility of deformation over time. The main pivot also has a pressed in self lubricating bronze bushing for longevity. A very nice upgrade to any gun, and will ensure loading reliability for years to come.
