    Thanks. Sorry to be a pain. But I have another question............. :duh:

    So a couple of times I had to take a rubber mallet to the charging handle because a steel case was stuck in the chamber. Myself or someone may have to do this again with your handle installed, just asking if you thought of this or is there a way/place to hit and not break the handle. Other than putting a brass rod down the bore on a potential live round and pogoing does not work.

    Sorry to be a pain.

    I know that it is seldom if ever used, but does you design incorporate the same forward assist function of the original?

    Re: XCR folding charging handles, who wants one?

    I am he. I plan on making these out of 7075. If an order big enough for anodizing goes through then they are $73 a pc and that includes S&H. The lug will be 4140 pre hardened steel. The knob will also be the same material. I plan on working closely with AEnemaBay to get the rail fit and everything just right. Basically these have a much slimmer profile then the knobbed charging handle. On these the knob is folded down and when you need to charge then you move it up ( for those not familiar with the FAL para) The only thing with me is that you need to be patient. I don't have a CNC and everything takes me a while to make. Is there anyone on here with an XCR close to 32738 zip code? If you need forard assist then that will not happen with this handle, I will be working on something else for that.

    I won't know the answer to that for sure until I try it. I've pogo'd a few FAL's with folding charging handles (where I got the design idea from) and they've all been fine. But at the same time those were made of steel.

    You are about 3-3.5 hours North of me. I do believe though that there are a couple (at least one) around Cape Canaveral. If they do not chime in, let me know.
