    Do any charging handles do a better job then others?

    I thought there was a thread here about this, but didn’t see one.

    I get the general consensus That ARs are gassy, well I’d like to “better” what I can and play with different CH’s. I get the silicone trick, but I’m skipping that for now..

    So what ch’s you guys using that are an improvement in blowback

    Are the raptor sds worth it over say a Geissele ach/sch?

    Wear your mask. []

    Seriously, I don't think there's been much movement since the PRI Gasbuster/silicone combination. If I'm wrong, I'd like to hear about it, too.

    I haven't done a ton of comparisons on charging handles themselves. I use the Griffin SNACH and it does help.

    For blow back even with that it's going to depend on a whole lot more factors that a CH won't be able to fix. Ammo choices (powder choice) is a big deal because lots of powders are much more 'gassy' than others. If you are shooting a lot of rapid fire is another. Also if you are shooting on a very still day (no wind) or shooting indoors (again no wind) it can get you gassed out quickly.

    No, don't waste your money.

    AR suppressed, you're just gonna have to suck it up, or find a better suppressed host. Pistons are slightly better if you want to stick with AR's.

    OSS claims their suppressor is made to spec for the military especially to mitigate blow-back.

    The upcoming 3D-printed suppressors from SIG are supposed to actually REDUCE pressure at the muzzle. Since they aren't out yet nobody knows for sure ... but here's hoping, since I love a suppressed AR ... time will tell.

    I like the Griffin Armament SN-ACH since it basically functions like, and costs about the same as, a Raptor but does mitigate the gas a teeny tiny bit. UW is right though, it doesn't really make a big difference. You're better off using a mil-spec CH and putting the money towards good eye pro

    I gotta say, that's some good marketing there. I've been a bit "meh" on the OSS cans but now I'll take a closer look.

    The newer OSS cans are much more practical from a length/bulk stand point. Their first gen stuff was good, but way too bulky.

    I’d spend the money on adjusting your gas first.

    I have a two SNACHs but they don’t have any gas to funnel out, so I started buying Geissele ACHs

    PRI Gasbuster’s with the RTV mod is a slight improvement but you right handlers are crybabies. LOL Try it once with the port in your face.

    And the best suppressor host is a Scar. Don’t waste the money on a piston AR.
