SiCo handle unique2

Suppressor powerhouse SilencerCo just debuted their Gas Defeating Charging Handle (or GDCH) which is billed as significantly redirecting the blowback of gas delivered to the face when shooting AR-15s, especially when suppressed.

While such a concept isn’t new– Radian, BCM Gunfighter, and others such as Precision Reflex, maker of the M84 Gas Buster, all make such handles- -SiCo bills theirs as actually working, and they have the video to prove it.

The SiCo GDCH runs $114, which is about $25 more than the Gas Buster and on-par with a bunch of other handles.

Unlike the others which use ports and channels to divert the gas away from the face, the GDCH has a gasket on the bottom of the handle.
