    M4 Charging handle extensions

    I'm thinking of fitting an extension to my M4 charging handle and wondered if anyone has any experiences of them?

    Although operation of the handle is partly obscured but the optic fitted, I can still reach it correctly however an extention would make it a lot easier.

    i used this one before

    cheap and worked with gloves

    I dont know your set up though you may want to think about remounting the scope, if you have an RIS and if you have the stock cary handle you can get an adaptor such as the one on the second cary handle

    Yes, I have used airsoft products on real fire arms as the cost is less and i dont expect to low crawl or be ruff on equipment.

    Is there an advantage to buying the whole handle vs. just replacing the latch?

    I stopped doing that (the "hand switch" thing) once I got out of the service and into LE/SWAT.

    Back when I went through basic in the early 90's, you performed SPORTS by "Pulling" with the firing hand. Don't ask me why but that was how they did it.

    Much like THIS:
