Tactical Sh*t’s Best-Selling Charging Handle (And Stuff)

fstick1

If you’re a fan of aftermarket parts for your rifle, you just might want to take a look at what Tactical Sh*t has to offer. Just keep your sense of humor handy and remember, we’re all friends here…well, except for that one guy. You know who you are.

Your charging handle is a rather important part of your AR and without it you’d have some serious problems. And if you want a charging handle that makes you smile, take a look at the F*ck Stick. Yes, it’s really called that. It’s made in America and manufactured from 7075 billet aluminum and is MIL-SPEC anodized for durability. MSRP is $47.95. It’s currently out of stock, but you can request to be notified when it’s available again (I fully admit to putting my email on their mailing list for this purpose). Take a look online here.

Even better, if you’re a veteran or still in the service and a fan of demanding people keep their “booger hooker off the bang switch” Tactical Sh*t has the trigger for you. It’s the Bang Switch trigger, and it’s for your AR-15 or AR-10. It’s manufactured from 7075 T6 aluminum coated in Titanium Nitride. There are several safety selector options and the option of anti-walk pins. And, of course, it’s made in America. MSRP ranges from $199.99 to $259.89. Take a look online here for details.

  • Major Fret

    I love how the title censors sh*t but the first picture shows the word f**k uncensored on the charging handle

  • The4thMusketeer

    I would not recommend ordering from them unless you have a month to wait for the parts. I’m still waiting on them to fulfill my order 3 weeks on. Mind you the product still has an “in stock” status on their website. From the reviews I have read it is a common problem.

    • Kivaari

      Besides being crude idiots, they have the same low regard for the customers.

  • thedonn007

    Well, that is one way to stand out in a crowd.

    • Kivaari

      Like waving a flag that says. “Here I am, I’m the stupid one”.

  • Spencerhut

    So a charging handle to show everyone what a rebel you are, got it. Not sure about the trigger, looks sort of like all the other “magic box” triggers out there. Guess you can get one of those to show everyone you haven’t figured out magic box triggers are no where near as good as Geissele*.

    *Don’t work for or owe Geissele anything. Just work on a lot of AR’s.

    • NDS

      One of the key advantages of a “magic box” trigger is consistency across a vast sea of lower receiver specs. As someone who works on a lot of AR’s, you’ve seen just how different some interpretations of “mil-spec” can be.

      Nothing against Geissele, just my $.02

      • Budogunner

        Also, reduced stress on pin holes in polymer and 3D Printed lowers due to the metal housing.

        • Kivaari

          The best solution for polymer parts is to not use them.

          • Budogunner

            Not entirely fair. I have a Taurus (I know, I know, hear me out) 1911 that is all metal. Even the grips are aluminum. However, it has mim parts and the slide has a small crack near the extractor on the underside. I also have a Springfield XDM I have run suppressed and it shows no signs of wear I can see. The XDM is a carry option, the 1911 is a range toy.

            That may be apples to oranges as we were talking ARs, but I think the point still holds. Quality of engineering, build, and materials all play a factor. There is now 3d printing filament with Kevlar fibers to reinforce the finished product. In a year or two, we may see gun shops with print-your-own-gun kiosks.

          • Kivaari

            I don’t have issues with polymer, where it works. Like in Glocks and SA-XDs. I have yet to see a plastic AR that would make me buy one. Having memories of all the earlier plastic AR15s being junk is hard to replace with warm and fuzzy feelings. Like the Omni, they added metal reinforcing, but used zinc. I wont own zinc guns nor zinc and plastic. At least they could have used a steel pressing, or use mil-spec+ aluminum. Last year a friend asked me to look at an AR on sale locally. Sure, we got to the store, and it was a poly upper and lower. For $100 more he could get a DPMS, and did. Even the clerk told him not to buy the plastic gun. Too many of the customers come back with “issues”.
            Taurus isn’t the only one to make junk. I had a Ruger New Model convertible Blackhawk in .45. A lightly used gun, with a crack from the corner of the hand port, about 0.5 inches long. Castings can have hidden air pockets. I’ve seen I on several guns over the years. Detonics liked using stainless steel as when a pocket is found they can weld it and finish it without re-heat treating. A carbon steel gun part is stronger. SS guns were cheaper to make, but sold for more because the customer “sees more value”, when it is a lesser product.

      • Spencerhut

        The AR’s I care about are for personal protection or competition. A lower not “in spec” is not a lower, it’s a paperweight.

        • Mark

          I hate to break it to you Spencer but on the internet you may come across people who don’t only care about the things you do.

          Just wanted to give you a heads up.

          • Spencerhut

            I’m crest fallen, nay heartbroken. GFY 🙂

        • Kivaari

          Mil-Spec is the minimum standard. Others are above it, and are good. Then there are those below it.

    • These charging handles are 1/3 the price shipped on ebay/aliexpress, too ♡

    • Kivaari

      If you ever want a great trigger, the Geiselle SSA is great. After being shown one by my local dealer, I bought 3 of them.

  • RickH

    F*ck it, but I’m not buying this sh*t anymore.

  • Jack Griffin

    Nothing says “I’m a Tactical Manchild” quite like vulgar language on your MSR.

  • Edeco

    Cute, but reminds me of the movie Idiocracy… where the one monster truck is “The Dildozer” etc.

  • Bill

    Someone will buy anything.

    • Kivaari

      Yep, there are lots of stupid people out there.

  • TheMaskedMan

    That’s ok. I just painted the word “balls” on the receiver. Makes me ultra-popular with the middle school kids.

  • Lance

    Don’t need such profanity though.

  • Poor choice of names—-

  • Zachary marrs

    I’ll stick with BCM.

    Last thing i want is my rifle calling me a f**k stick

  • Kivaari

    These guys could make the best parts in the world and I wouldn’t buy any of them. The use of gutter talk to sell gun parts is simply crude. We have enough problems with people that hate guns. These people go out of their way to be playground stupid.
    Grow up.

    • OCD_Weaponry

      Yep, I cant say I would ever support a company that prints curse words on a charging handle for shock value just to sell to the nasty crowd.

  • Kivaari

    The more I look at the product promotions, the less I like these idiots. They’ll scream about the first amendment rights while most of us wouldn’t own any of their sh*t.

  • SpartacusKhan

    wow. never thought clever cussing could inspire such butthurt, especially in people who probably piss and moan about PC culture and muh freedumb…

    • uisconfruzed

      Some still recognize that foul language compensates for a lack of culture, intellect and vocabulary.

      • SpartacusKhan

        Yeah, but they’re all old ladies with no sense of humor who are dying of complications caused by vaginal dryness.

        • Kivaari

          Or they have more respect than these pukes.

          • SpartacusKhan

            Respect for what? No one’s forcing anyone to look at a gun part with something funny written on it, and I doubt you’ll confuse it with your tampons.

          • Kivaari

            Respect for us. Respect for the customers that could buy the product but wont due to the crude markings. We can sit around using gutter language on our own. I could just see this, a cop blasts a perp, then ends up at a coroner inquest of trial. having to explain why his rifle has crudities on it. It’s just not the place for vulgar language. I can swear like a sailor or soldier, having been both. As a former gun store owner, I would never buy this product for inventory. Maybe if you were running a joint sex toy store gun store operation you would have a place. Who would buy these? More crude people, I wouldn’t like being around.
            OK, call me a prude. What are the makers? Dipshits using a foolish business model. Sure a few idiots will buy anything, especially if it has playground shock value. I couldn’t see myself taking my grandson shooting, where he racks back the charging handle, only to see that there are indeed idiots that sell such things and idiots that buy such things.

    • Kivaari

      We can acknowledge the free speech aspect, and express our views that these guys are scummy.

  • RISKY

    I’m guessing that “one guy” who should know who he is is nutnfancy 😉

  • Jeff

    Nothing makes the gun community look classier, safer, and more polite than a bunch of crotch grabbing gun jocks covering everything in language better suited for first year middle schoolers who just discovered profanity and are testing it out like they’ve got tourette’s syndrome. Maturity and cordiality are a lost art anymore, grow the hell up, people.

    • uisconfruzed

      Well said!!

  • uisconfruzed

    America… the land of the missing gentleman.
    I’ll stick with my raptor and not be the compensating putz with crude writing on my tool.

  • adverse

    No.

  • Nate H

    Meh, the language doesn’t bug me, I think it’s kind of funny, really. Every other word out of my mouth is some form of vulgarity. Even all that said, my standard charging handle works just fine and I see no need to replace it, ever for the lulz. Pass.

  • Kivaari

    Then there are those that are on the edge. You take them shooting, and they see this and think it’s crude and not one bit funny. Maybe we lose a convert. Or they may be just fine with it. Let them buy it for their rifle.
    Just like the other company with the “Made in the Mother F**king USA”. Yeah, that’s real clever. Idiots that think that has appeal outside the biker gang clubhouse. I’ll stick to Bravo Company parts.

    • MarkVShaney

      I wouldn’t count “on the edge” as “hate guns” but please feel free to move the goalpost wherever it’s most comfortable for you to convince yourself that you’re on some high ground.

  • Kivaari

    I never watched it either. Why do some people think being crude is a positive thing?
