KDG launches the new Scarging Handle™ – SCAR ambidextrous charging handle

The Scarging handle fits both 5.56 and 7.62 NATO versions of the SCAR, and installs in seconds.

Designed by KDG’s Nathan Murr (A USMC veteran, and inventor of the GripStop), there was heavy input from operators in the field during the development process. The new design was focused on addressing the reported user complaints surrounding the factory FNH SCAR charging handle and its performance during hard use.

This allows for easier charging, clearing of stoppages, and administratively locking the firearm bolt to the rear. The shooter can choose between left or right side installation to match their hand dominance, and can rotate the Scarging Handle to either downward or upward sweep.

The downward sweep protects the hand from “busted knuckles” due to optics mounts by keeping it down and away from the weapon’s top. This also has the added benefit of additional leverage gained, and increased grasping surface for larger hands or when wearing gloves.  The Scarging handle can alternatively be installed with the curve upward, which provides the user a slick side receiver to prevent snagging or “SCAR Thumb” (i.e. having the reciprocating charging handle strike your hand when using a magwell hold or unconventional shooting method).
