Slide Lock Ambidextrous Charging Handle by Mega

    AR charging handles have always seemed overly-complicated and costly to me. So the new Slide Lock from Mega seems like a great idea. It is constructed of 7075 billet aluminum and is type III hard coat anodized. The capture latch is black nitrate coated for corrosion resistance. It dispenses with the lever completely, simply using oversized handles for a quick and easy charging. Simpler is better.

    It has an MSRP of $60.

    The AR-15 model fits all mil-spec uppers and is available now. A .308 version is coming soon.
