The Badger Ordnance Gen II Tactical Latch is an extended charging handle latch that was developed to allow rapid operation of the charging handle with the right hand, left hand, in gloves, wet, mud, snow, and/or ice. The Gen II tact latch is perfect for flat top AR-15/M16 series rifles which utilize a scope and limit access to the charging handle. The latch is made from 8620 ordnance steel and parkerized with a mil-spec finish. The Gen II is a smaller profile tactical latch for the AR series of rifles and allows for the easy operation of the charging handle with either hand. Charging handle not included.
