The BREACH: New Charging Handles From Aero Precision

This is not your old budget ambi-charging handle. Aero Precision has decided to ‘breach’ (yeah I did that, +1 dad joke point) the market of premium charging handles where three names heretofore reigned supreme.

The BREACH is a dual latch 7075-T6 offering, in both large lever and small lever configurations for AR-15’s and AR-10 types that match their M5 (SR-25/DPMS, not the SIG716) rifles. A robust simple design that does away with the thin drop in latches of earlier days, the BREACH follows the market standardization of offering end users the two latch configurations. One with a larger profile for easy one handed manipulations from either shoulder with either hand and one with a more reduced profile to minimize snagging or other interference against gear while still allowing one handed charging handle use.

This isn’t a new ground breaking concept, it is a market expansion of a proven one. And since I haven’t seen a BCM ambi in a blue moon, one the market can use with demand so high.
