    XCR Carbon Fiber Charging Handle

    My first attempt. I am working on a perfected version now. This charging handle is made of solid carbon fiber.

    I think that looks awesome! Does it still retain the forward assist of the factory charging handle? Did you have a block of CF to carve the handle out of?

    Actually yes it is carved from a solid block of carbon fiber. This is difficult to do since carbon fiber is so strong, especially in a solid block form. Originally it did retain the forward assist but I didn't like the gap that was left between the frame and the handle, so I cut it down to fit flush against the frame. Since then I have perfected the process and I plan on making a few more of these, some of which will have the forward assist capability and some won't. I am also experimenting with different shapes and thinking of making one that more resembles the factory handle. Overall though it is much preferred over the factory handle.

    No mold. A mold would have been a weaker way of doing it and would not have provided the look and strength I was after.

    Here is another angle where you can better see the layers of carbon fiber.

    That's pretty neat. How will it take getting banged around?
