Default Left and Right handed AK charging handle

I was checking out some youtube videos today and I stumbled across a Video of a fat Texas guy shooting at a carbine class with his AK. Anyways he was racking the bolt with his left hand and I was telling myself this is fantastic. I did some Google searches and came across this http://www.coloradoshootingsports.co...tningbolt.html I prefer the Gen2 Lightning bolt so you can still keep the right handed charging handle also. So I was wondering if any of you have heard of or used this and what you think either way of anything negative or positive about this system.

Wait a couple months, someone on ARFCOM is producing a different system with a non-reciprocating lefthand charging handle without needing to modify your bolt carrier.


Here's a vid of it:

I've checked out the lightning bolt. Not for me, neither is the HK style, that last round bolt hold open one is closer to what I want but My rear sights are mounted to the dust cover on my gun. So I'm just gonna make my own non reciprocating charging handle.

Just curious, but have you ever thought about running Yugo M70 mag followers for the BHO feature?

Nope, I was referring to the name on your link. If I really want a LRBHO I'll find a way to do it without having to buy special followers. I'm working on a custom gun because somebody said that no CA shops offer innovation in the AK platform. Well to me that is a challenge and I intend to prove whoever that was wrong.

I would definitely be interested in a left handed charging handle and the LINCH system seems like a pretty sweet idea. I know he mentioned it won't work for Saiga Shotguns but understanding the similarities of the Saiga rifles to the AK 74, I assume it would work the same. However, just like everything else, it comes down to whether or not the price is attractive enough....That being said, I certainly hope it is.

The Linch solution looks interesting. Bookmarked!

This new system looks cool but for now I have been using the CS Lightning Bolt. Works great but not cheap.

Hey Guys,
My name is Ethan Dublin and i am responsible for the HK style charging system. we will have a non-reciprocating model ready in a month. in just the past year we have sold units all across the country and they have even made there way over to private security contractors. This new system will will be better then before. it features:
• Non- reciprocating charging handle in a natural location
• Trouble free installation, no gun smithing required
• Faster reloading due to less hand manipulation
• Allows operator to keep firing hand on grip
• Much easier to operate when firing prone and/or around obstacles (i.e., car doors, windows, etc.)
• Quicker cooling on gas system.
• Eliminates all exterior moving parts (when existing handle is removed)

Here are just a few advantages over the other left side systems.
1. its non-reciprocating, 2. its not going back and fourth near your face, 3. you can use your side rail for optics, 4. its in a better location where as the operator naturally puts his/her hand on the forearm, 5. you dont have to worry about slapping yourself in the face while charging, 6. it doesn't open up your receiver to dirt and debris getting in on your critical trigger parts, 7. you don't have to replace your whole bolt assembly and/or wait to send yours in for the modification,8. it doesn't cost $250.00.

I've got one of Ethan's on the way. I'll also be ordering one of his Non-reciprocating units as soon as they become available.

Also, check out Dublin AK Systems on Facebook, become a fan....I am.

The real question is can I run a Lightning Bolt, LINCH, and the Dublin AK charging handles all at the same time?

Honestly, I like my teeth so the Lightning Bolt is a no-go. I like my support thumb so the original Dublin system is a no-go. The LINCH looks like a top shelf product but with minimal benifit. The charging handle is too small and awkwardly shaped to be an effective primary charging point however it doesn't lay down after charging to take full advantage of it's collapsableness - had they replicated the Spetnaz shaped charging handle instead of using the FAL parts it probably would be a MUCH better option.

Of course hearing that Dublin may be getting a non-recipricating style soon has REALLY peaked my interest actually.

You have my interest piqued. I googled for "Spetsnaz charging handle" but the only hits I got were for airsoft.

Can you point to where you've seen this?

The Spetsnaz were known for modifying their AK74 type rifles be heating and bending the charging handle to a ~45 degree angle. The idea, as I understand it, was it was less prone to snagging and was also easier to actuate in either an under the trigger guard or over the dust cover grab and yank. Its function was similar in design to that of the Galil charging handle.

I'd do a quick Google search but I just lost a hard drive today and am running on an older hard drive so my system isn't acting 100%. I'm sure if you look for something along the lines of bent AK-74 charing handle you should be able to find a picture of it.

I looked at all of the options available, and was most impressed with Doug's system. He's also a great guy, and I'm sure his product is one of quality.

That said, I was still not liking the idea of relying on a top cover's rigidity to charge a gun over the long haul. Also, I think there is also a significant amount of open space created at the rear side of the FAL style handle. In other words, a significant amount of space is open for debris to enter the system, because the FAL charging handle must be cut short to keep from piercing the face of the operator when they charge the weapon whilst maintaining a cheekweld.

After a lot of thought, I decided to go with the Tromix Galil style charging handle. Tromix can mod your carrier to work like a Galil, and I think it's the best compromise. You can easily charge the weapon with your left hand. You can use your current dustcover. You don't open the system to more debris. And, it's even cheaper.

Forgive the craptastic pics, just took em' on the floor so you could see what I'm talking about....

That is a neat charging handle! just like the Galil. that guy did a great job on the welding also. so do you go over the gun or under?

You can do it any way you need to, which is the beauty of the Galil-style handle. But I usually go left handed over the top, because you can do it prone and it's just faster for me generally.

The only downside is that the sharp blade of the rear sight can catch your palm a little. I'm experimenting with (you guessed it) Galil-style rear peep sights to replace the rear blade. I prefer a rear peep anyway, so it's much better imho. Hope that helps,

Hey, check out Tech Sites, I've only heard good things about them. one of my friends put a set on his and he was repeatably hitting a gong at 200 yards with his AK.

Thumbs up

The secondary backs up irons sights are always critical. I must commend you on the AIM T-1 selection and the Ultimak platform. A professional shooters of your caliber knows the iron sights can be utilized through Aim Point T-1 reflexive sight. There is nothing on the market presently that compares in stability. You just need a LINCH top cover to go with that platform. The LINCH and the Ultimak are designed to work together. If this is not your preference on set-up you can remove the LINCH product in seconds.


Thanks
Doug Davis

I too have heard nothing but good about the tech sites, but honestly I dont see how they are needed. I think most do just fine with the standard AK type sights.

lol whaaa? I just changed my go to rifle from my AR to my AK because of the reliability of the AK platform and the penetrating power of the 7.62x39 cartridge the ergonomics you speak of can be easily changed now a days but isn't necessary as it is mainly a training issue. But this is another topic all together. The bolt you are referring to is the lightning bolt system.

Another option is to get an actual Galil bolt carrier and swap out the piston which achieves the same goal plus gives you one US made part if you get a new piston

Yugo BHO mags are only good for letting you know that you have just fired the last round as the bolt will fly home as soon as you remove the mag.

As for the left side charging handle I guess it will come down to what type of optic you want to use along with how the ergonomics of either system works for you. I'm looking forward to seeing all of these mods hit the market so I can finger f%$k them. So if anyone wants to send an eval unit my way I would be more than happy to test them out and provide feedback.

I like the Galil type, however, the problem i see with charging handles where the operator has to reach up towards the dust cover on the left side is you have to take the gun down and you cant keep it shouldered/on target. plus....if you dont you'll slap yourself in the face and...it gets in the way of your site picture.

this charging system is based on the INSAS rifle and is a drop in kit for the Kalashnikov. Its conveniently located near the operators hand on the forearm to allow quick action on charging. Here are just a few reasons to go with this one when compared to other left side charging systems.

• its non-reciprocating
• its not going back and forth near your face
• you can use your side rail for optics and still use the charging handle
• its in a better location where as the operator naturally puts his/her hand on the forearm instead of bringing it back closer to the body
• you don’t have to worry about slapping yourself in the face while charging
• it doesn't open up your receiver to dirt and debris getting in on your critical trigger parts
• It won’t blow gas in your face
• Quicker Cooling on gas system
• 100% reliable, you can throw sand all through it and it will still run
• you don't have to replace your whole bolt assembly/top cover, and/or wait to send yours in for the modification
• You won’t lose site picture from having a handle in your field of view
• Built from 100% milled parts, not stamped sheet metal
• it doesn't cost $250.00.


We will be posting videos and pictures soon. Our model will be compatible with ak47s, 74s, and Saigas.
The Ultimak is a great system, but most Kalashnikovs are built today with a left side optics rail already installed which allows the quick detach of optics and use of irons.

Um, no. You're wrong about that. I can stay on target easily and rack the carrier. And luckily, the AK design means the carrier doesn't have to travel so far that you hit yourself. Maybe if your hand slips off, but that'd kinda be on you, wouldn't it? I have no trouble, and find it to be a superior solution. I know you're trying to sell your system, but please keep the statements based in fact.

Just my opinion

Just my opinion

However, just like everything else, it comes down to whether or not the price is attractive enough....That being said, I certainly hope it is.
The Saiga 12 and all other have very little in common execpt they are based on the Kalashnikov design. IIRC the only parts that can interchange is the FCG even then, it needs to be modified to fit and function in the Saiga 12

Sir,
Let me rephrase that. what i meant to say is as you put your hand over the rifle to charge, your hand interferes with your line of site on the target. so you really have to lower the firearm in order to charge it. Sorry if i mislead you.

VR,
Ethan Dublin

I would like to see dirt dumped down yours in the T slot. What happens if the handle comes off the track when an operator is charging it close it his/her face? Sheetmetal.

Now, if we could just combine the Tech Sights with the LINCH cover, omit the right hand charging handle and FSB, add a galil reverse thumb safety and combo GB/FS, we'd have an AK pistol I would be proud to take home to momma.

ETA: Should I move this post to the mall-ninja thread?

SoundFX, how much did that Tromix mod set you back? It's what I've been considering, the Galil charging handle for my AK74.

Paitence, I'm working on something. Gotta try it on my gun first, customer guns are not something I like to experiment on.
