    Geissele master race πŸ™‚

    Have to test the aero breach. Much nicer than the version you have. Been using radian for a few years now



  3. Aaron Dragg on November 5, 2021 at 12:34 am

    The Geissele is great, and has by far the best mitigation of gasses, especially while suppressed. The Radian is a really nice design, they just don’t have the shelf or wall in the rear that seals around the receiver and redirects gasses, so while they look and feel good and are built well, the Geissele just wins. However, Aero just last week released the Breach which is more of a premium charging handle similar to Geissele and Radian. It was only in stock for a few hours but I got one on the way. It seems like it may be a winner as well. The only downside of the Geissele is the handles are a little sharp at the ends. The new Aero Breach is shaped a little smoother but it does include similar gas mitigation shelf to the Geissele, so it will surely outperform the Radian and may be a little more comfortable than the Geissele. Or simply just another good option.

    Looks like you could pinch yourself on the aero, like the BCM gunfighter

    I have the Aero ambi and it’s not bad. Found it fairly easy to rack the bolt on left or right side. I typically am pulling the handle back by the flip out tabs. I found the anodizing on this handle to be superb and still hasn’t worn off. I just picked up a Vltor Mod3 for $41 and it’s not Ambi but I’ve always wanted the BCM gunfighter and since it’s no longer available I just went with slightly different but same Vltor version.

    The aero precision breach charging handle is better and this one here looks like a dragonfly to me.



  7. David Woolard on November 5, 2021 at 12:39 am

    I like the strike industries extended also.



  8. jedimahi on November 5, 2021 at 12:39 am

    Am I the only one that thinks the Blackhawk No-Latch Ambidextrous Charging Handle does not get enough love? It is a great more budget friendly option.



  9. Eddie Fernandez on November 5, 2021 at 12:40 am

    The DD charging handle is the best. Hopefully you get to review soon.

    Geissele = Guise-lee
    Palmetto = Palm-etto
    Leupold = Loo-pold
    Canik = Jan-ick
    Heckler and Koch = Heckler and Coke (soft k on the "coke")
    Kahr = Car
    Sig Sauer = Sig Sour (whoever says Sawyer is trying to kill me)
    Steyr = St-eye-er
    Sturmgewehr = Shturm-gevair (or STG44)
    Garand = Gairand (not Ga-rand)
    Franchi = Fron-key
    Sako = Sah-kow

    These are the things people get wrong daily where I work.

    I am currently looking into upgrading charging handles on a couple guns and this totally helped me decide. I’m gunna order some PSA chargers… if I can find any…



  12. Kerry Sumners on November 5, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Geissele Airborne.



  13. Pilling Them Softly on November 5, 2021 at 12:51 am

    You pronounced GUISE-LEE correctly. Geissele is the best in my option, especially the Airbourne or Government model that has smaller handles so the handles don’t get hung up on gear. It also has the lip on the back which helps A LOT for when shooting suppressed to not get so much gas in the face. The Aero handle sucks, and any CH with similar handles sucks because you can get your finger pinched if your skin gets in between the latch and handle area. That can’t happen with a Geissele or Raptor due to the latch/handle design.



  14. JPOLL on November 5, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Radian 100%



  15. Walter Ritchey on November 5, 2021 at 12:54 am

    This was incredibly helpful. I bought a radian raptor, because I have an ACOG that overhangs the charging handle making it impossible to get my hand in to pull the mil-spec one. Even with the Radian, it’s so stiff, I struggle to quickly charge the rifle. I think I’m going to switch over to Geissele after seeing the shape, size, and smoothness of the action. I also considered the BCM Gunfighter 3, but I don’t think I can go wrong with Geissele here. Thanks!



  16. Scott D on November 5, 2021 at 12:54 am

    The BA Warhammer is by far the best value for the money. Just as good if not better than my Geisselle charging handle and it only cost $50 on primary arms and less on brownells.



  17. Rebel Forces Earth on November 5, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Do charging handles differ on design depending on whether the AR is a gas-piston or direct-impingement??



  18. Ξ›ΞžΞ¦Ξ©Ξ”Ξ£Ξ˜Ξ  on November 5, 2021 at 12:54 am

    My money is always on Geissele products



  19. Gary Dowd on November 5, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Check out the new aero breech.



  20. David Moore on November 5, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Stryke industries latchless charging handle is my favorite.



  21. Brittain Woolley on November 5, 2021 at 12:58 am

    The Aero is extremely similar in design and basically identical in functionality to the BCM Ambi charging handle. After severely pinching my finger in the handle during a double feed issue I decided the design is absolutely terrible and can assume the same flaw exists in the aero design.



  22. Scott Steele on November 5, 2021 at 12:59 am

    I just bought a Aero…a bit pricey but I do like it on my 6.5cm because of the scope I have on it, but I also have Radian Raptor on my 308 which is very nice.



  23. Urmom1985 on November 5, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Ambidextreeus πŸ™„



  24. Nra,Morris G on November 5, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Here you want to do a real test, go over to Iraq get into a couple weeks and fire fights and test out each one you’ll see which one works the best under stress.
    Alrighty then.



  25. Levi Shelley on November 5, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Oh damn.. I wanted to like that aero handle but then the slip happened. You got in the groove and it slid off. Not good but thanks for the video.



  26. E Underwood on November 5, 2021 at 1:02 am

    The PSA is really an Armaspec Victory CH with the Palmetto logo on it. Armaspec makes good ish. It may appear bulkier, but dimensionally it’s the same as the Radian (at least thickness and width, obviously they’re shaped differently).



  27. Mr Short on November 5, 2021 at 1:03 am

    hey since you have all those you can send me one that is ambi I will gladly take anyone off your hands, I like that palmetto or geissele, I have large hands I can’t afford those prices



  28. RIPPER334 on November 5, 2021 at 1:04 am

    Charge the rifle the way it was designed to be, you you won’t need to spend 30 bucks to look like a tac-tard.

    it doesn’t make you look cool, or shoot better. Derp…



  29. Aiden Dirt Bikes on November 5, 2021 at 1:07 am

    I’ve never had a problem with milspec charging handles It works perfectly fine i grab it with my left pointer and thumb



  30. Grave White on November 5, 2021 at 1:07 am

    You said Geislle correctly, I said it the other way and got corrected. By the owner. lol



  31. Chuns808 on November 5, 2021 at 1:08 am

    I like the Radiant Raptor LT!!!! Works really well!!!!πŸ€™πŸΌπŸ€™πŸΌπŸ€™πŸΌ



  32. CC California on November 5, 2021 at 1:09 am

    Bigger QUESTION is how do each handle back pressure "GASES" FROM A SUPPRESSOR???



  33. Trinidad Martinez on November 5, 2021 at 1:13 am

    Fantastic Demonstrations, Honest Commentary, Great Review, and a Quality Video. You deserve more likes than I can provide good sir



  34. Big Poppa on November 5, 2021 at 1:13 am

    In the event of a zombie apocalypse I need to pull from both hands and if knocked to the ground by a walker I need to rip that bad boy with my foot. Troop!!



  35. Skitzo Affective on November 5, 2021 at 1:14 am

    Yes. You’re pronouncing it incorrectly. Ambidextrous. Not Ambidextrious. Thanks for the helpful information about charging handles. πŸ™‚



  36. Damn Yankee D. on November 5, 2021 at 1:17 am

    Dude, PSA doesn’t even deserve a mention. It’s f’ing crap.



  37. Allen E on November 5, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Nice video….clear and nice close up product display.



  38. William Riley on November 5, 2021 at 1:19 am

    MOST EXPENSIVE Charging Handles for the AR15 / M4



  39. gabriel smith on November 5, 2021 at 1:22 am

    I think aero was more going for the single side with index and thumb style of charging compared to the original style or hook method shown



  40. CC California on November 5, 2021 at 1:22 am

    What about the ("F-1") CUSTOM CHARGING HANDLE!! It looks very good to me!!



  41. Grave White on November 5, 2021 at 1:22 am

    I really appreciate your review on this. I think you bring up very valuable points!



  42. Gfighters2011 on November 5, 2021 at 1:22 am

    will those work for the springfield armory saint 556



  43. Grave White on November 5, 2021 at 1:23 am

    We need more videos my dude. @epicguntime



  44. Ronnie Humphries on November 5, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Great video. Very helpful for me.



  45. rayraymartineziii on November 5, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Aero precision charging handle creates a torque that can increase friction.



  46. Matthew Fox on November 5, 2021 at 1:25 am

    The aero looks painful



  47. Branden's Outdoor (B-Channel) on November 5, 2021 at 1:25 am

    I run the strike industries latchless handle



  48. Baja Dan on November 5, 2021 at 1:27 am

  50. RICHARD MILFORD on November 5, 2021 at 1:29 am
