Before you sigh at yet another “tactical” product, hold your breath for a moment. The Beaten Zone A.T.C.H. takes the extended charging handle latch to a whole new, even bigger level.
Made of the usual top-notch materials, the A.T.C.H. comes in three configurations, each changing the machining on the latch itself. No 1. is your standard latch. No 3 rounds it out a bit and, and No. 7 adds aggressive serrations for grip.
For now, the A.T.C.H. is only available in black. OD and Tan colors are coming soon. Retail for the No. 1 version is $73.00 with the No. 5 & 7 clocking in at a reasonable $75.00
You may sigh now…
- ROLL PIN HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH COIL ROLL PIN AND RE-POSITIONED
- GRIP ADDED TO LOCKING LATCH FOR VERSATILITY
- LARGE SURFACE AREA
- SLIM PROFILE
- LOCKS IN CLOSED POSITION
- GEN 3 NO. 1 A.T.C.H. AVAILABLE IN BLACK
- GEN 3 NO. 5 & 7 A.T.C.H. AVAILABLE IN BLACK, O.D. GREEN (coming soon), FLAT DARK EARTH (coming soon)
Personally, I think the concept is sound, but the actual execution removes my favorite way to charge an AR, the “blade-hand method.” The shooter has to pause a moment to extend the latch.
What do you think?
