The Geissele Airborne Charging Handle (ACH) was specially developed based on a request from a highly respected elite organization known for their expertise in aerial insertion tactics. This organization emphasized the need for a charging handle with a lower profile lever design to minimize the risk of snagging, which can be detrimental in critical operational scenarios.

Recognizing the importance of this requirement, Geissele engineered the ACH to deliver superior performance and reliability. The ACH stands out with its sleek and streamlined design, making it an ideal choice for rifles equipped with a red dot or other low profile optic systems.

Crafted from a solid block of premium aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum, the ACH guarantees exceptional durability and strength, ensuring its performance even in the harshest conditions.

One of the standout features of the ACH is its shortened levers, which have been meticulously crafted and shaped. These levers feature gently concaved radius cuts both vertically and horizontally, making them ergonomic and comfortable even during prolonged usage.

Additionally, the handling surfaces of the levers are checkered to provide enhanced grip and confidence in operation, even when wearing gloves, ensuring that you stay in total control.

The Geissele ACH is not just another charging handle – it is a product designed to meet specific needs and demands. The ACH incorporates a taller fence at its rear, which plays a crucial role in redirecting gas blowback when shooting with short-barreled and suppressed weapon systems. This feature greatly improves the overall shooting experience, reducing recoil and providing a more stable shooting platform.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the ACH and all its components undergo Type 3 hard coat anodization, providing exceptional protection against corrosion and abrasion. This ensures that your ACH remains in peak condition even after extended use.

The ACH is available in two colors – Black and DDC (Desert Dirt Color), allowing you to choose one that best matches your personal preference or the aesthetics of your firearm. Take your rifle to the next level with the Geissele Airborne Charging Handle 5.56 DDC and experience the difference it can make in your shooting experience.
