Provides Quality and Versatility
Adding another exclusive in a long list of specially built items available only from Brownells, we've teamed up with VLTOR to offer an enhanced model of the company's AR-15 Ambidextrous Charging Handle.
Machined from billet aluminum and featuring added material left in place to strengthen stress points, the charging handle is purpose-built to handle the harshest environments imaginable.
Each Brownells/VLTOR charging handle features latches on the left- and right-hand sides of the unit, and the oversized design allows the force of a user's pull to be distributed evenly across the entire handle. This redirects stress away from the roll pin, preventing breakage. The charging handle is available only in an all-black finish.
Upgraded Design For Increased Durability & Dependability
Updated design of the standard AR-15 bolt features a fully supported breech face and a dual-spring extractor system for extra strength and reliability to handle the 6.8 Remington SPC II or 224 Valkyrie cartridge. Machined from an extremely hard steel alloy normally used in high-stress/heat applications like race car transmissions, then shot-peened and x-rayed for flaws before plating with a nickel-boron (NiB) coating. NiB coating significantly reduces friction coefficient, so the bolt is less likely to be hung up by fouling, and wear-resistance is greatly enhanced. Super-slick surface makes cleanup easy because carbon and gunk have a hard time sticking to it.

Designed for Lightweight, Low-Recoil Rifles
The Brownells M16 Lightweight Bolt Carrier Group is purpose-built for AR-15 owners looking to improve aspects of their rifle with a simple component swap, eliminating the need for major component replacement or amateur gunsmithing work.
The Brownells M16 Lightweight Bolt Carrier Group is machined from 8620 tool steel and features a heavy-duty bolt made using 9310 tool steel, which is then magnetic-particle inspected to ensure quality. The bolt is light enough to reduce the overall weight of a lightweight AR build, and the lightness of the entire assembly also reduces the felt recoil of any AR-style firearm.
- Available with nickel-boron, titanium-nitride or nitride finishes
- Weighs 8.2 ounces
- Compatible with AR-15s chambered in 5.56 NATO, .223 Rem., 300 Blackout and .204 Ruger
The Brownells M16 Lightweight Bolt Carrier Group ships completely assembled and features the necessary black insert and O-ring around the extractor, as well as a torqued and staked gas key.
