As I’ve mentioned many times before, I am a big fan of any ambidextrous add-on for the AR-15. I saw the Badger Ordnance Universal Charging Handle and thought it was a nice design because it not only is ambidextrous but also incorporates the Badger Ordnance Gen I Tactical Latch on both sides of the charging handle.
“The Tactical Latch is an extended charging handle latch and was developed to allow rapid operation of charging handle with the right or left hand, gloves, wet, mud and snow or ice. The latch is perfect for flat top AR-15/M16 series rifles which utilize a scope and limit access to the charging handle. The latch is made from 8620 ordnance steel and parkerized with a mil spec finish.
The Tactical latch is currently in service with the United States Marine Force Recon, US Navy SEALs, US Army Rangers and Special Forces as well as the DEA, FBI, Secret Service and dozens of Federal and State law enforcement agencies.”
Sorry I don’t have more pics. I’ll try to get more and update this post. You can check it out for yourself at www.BadgerOrdnance.com. They do make quite a few other items as well. Definitely worth your time.
