The Radian Raptor is the original ambidextrous AR-15 charging handle. The Raptor makes manipulation of the firearm fast and smooth thanks to large, textured unlocking latches on either side. This allows rapid palm “blading” or finger thumb charges of the weapon from either the strong or support side.

Frequently Asked Questions
You can’t go wrong with either. They both offer an incredible upgrade from a standard mil-spec AR-15 charging handle. The only real difference is the Raptor-LT handles are over-molded with high-strength, fiberglass reinforced polymer whereas the original Raptor handles are all aluminum. This results in the Raptor-LT being slightly lighter (1.2oz vs 1.3oz) and cheaper (all aluminum vs polymer) than the original Raptor.
