    9 mm AR charging handles

    Wanted to survey those of you with Colt pattern 9 mm ARs. How many of you have tried different charging handles than the std one? Which ones work and which donít?

    I have a CMMG Mk9T, and it did not like a Bravo Company Mod 4 (failures to feed). I just bought a PRI gas buster for 9 mm ARs (specific variant), so Iíll try that next week when I get out again.

    Failure to Feed how ??

    Your charging handle is not going to cause this... magazine and buffer & spring will cause this.

    I’ve tried the BCM, Geissele and the Raptor all have worked just fine

    Any handle with a good gas deflecting lip is a nice upgrade.
    I like Strike Industries as a budget option and Geissele Super as a high end option.
    Yea, your charge handle isnít your problem unless itís so out of spec itís dragging on your BCG.
    Iíd have a hard time believing a BCM was that far out of spec.

    I'm running a BCM Mod 4 on my CMMG (Colt pattern) 9mm AR with zero issues. Not sure what's going on with yours

    I had one failure to extract/eject, two failures to feed, using Brownells and the ASC magazine that came with my CMMG Mk9T. When I switched back to the standard AR charging handle, zero issues. Mind you, I have close to 1000 rounds through this carbine now, mostly using Brownells mags, and never had an issue before hand. Each time I take it out, I use Slip 2000 EWL to thoroughly clean and lubricate everything like I do with my other ARs. I agree with you that it is strange.

    Next weekend, I may have time to shoot again (babies and wife permitting). I’ll try the PRI 9 mm AR gas buster and see if I get the same issues. If I do, I’ll call CMMG. I use BCM Mod 4s on all my other ARs (minus my new SR-15), and I never have had any issues with any BCM product.

    I fail to see how a proper charging handle will cause any issue in any AR.

    9mm ARs are finicky. If you are having intermittent problems it is somewhere else in the system.
