So I'm breaking in my barrel today and I realize that it is a real pain in my posterior to reach both sides of the charging handle around the tactical scope. I know I've seen some side charging handle mods by different people. Does anyone have one? What do you think of it? Who did the mod for you?
The upper is a DPMS slab side (no forward assist or shell deflector)
Appreciate the help

The one I'm thinking of sticks directly out of the bolt carrier. It's a small handle that cycle with the bolt carrier. It's got a clearance slot cut rearward from the shell eject opening.

Yeah, that's the one. Is that rifle 308, is it yours, and who did the mod?

Not my rifle (it's a friend's), but I did the mod.

If saving money just get a gunfighter with the extended latch.

+1 on the gunfighter... spend the rest on ammo

Thanks guys. I'll start with the gunfighter then go from there. The issue is shooting competition, you've gotta take your face off the gun. I guess if the bolt is locked back, I won't have to charge it. Maybe it'll work.

this... the best reason for a side charging handle is to not have to pull out of your shooting position.... most charging handle only designs dont address this issue.
