The AR-15 charging handle assembly is, as are all of our Keepshooting.com house brand spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform, a brand new part produced in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that holds several foreign military contracts. As such, all parts are compatible with and interchangeable in any MIL-SPEC AR-15.
Located at the rear of the upper receiver adjacent the bolt carrier group, the AR-15 charging handle assembly consists of: the charging handle, the charging handle latch, a helical spring and a spring pin. The AR-15 charging handle assembly is an essential component to the operation of the rifle, as it is allows the shooter to retract the bolt and chamber a cartridge, among several other tasks. Though technically not secured within the rifle, the AR-15 charging handle assembly is held in place only when the lower receiver is secured to the upper receiver.
Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly – especially those components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes immediately necessary – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

I have seen M16s go down with bent charging handles. Its nice to have an extra just in case. These are well made and worth the price. A bit of insurance.
