Geissele Automatics Airborne Charging Handle (ACH)


DDC (Desert Dirt Color)

Product 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).

Fast shipping, but anodizing has blems

Disappointed in the anodizing, one handle is darker then the rest. And the latch is almost completely black.

Geissele ACH

This charging handle is perfect size with a bit more width and height than the stock handle. It's very well made; however it is overpriced. Would have given it a 5-star rating if the pricing had been more reasonable. It should be priced at $40 or less NOT $89.
