New AR charging handle

I have a target AR with a large scope mounted and the thing just sucks when pulling the charging handle which is a standard one.
I want a new charging handle with a paddle charging handle latch. There are so many out there and none around my city to look at on a gun.
Just wanted the opinions of the members.
Thank you all.

The BCM handles are excellent. I use a handle from Doublestar/JT with a Badger latch. It works really well and is a little cheaper than the BCM.

BCM Mod4, no question. You can rack it with your left palm, keeping your right hand on the grip. I used one, and I had an ACOG backed up all the way on the receiver, so it wasn't easy to grab over the top like a standard charging handle.

Ridge_Runner_5 nailed it.

The Raptor is awesome but useless with a scope.

BCM Mod4 is wise choice.

Rainier Arms Raptor. You won't ever use anything else. I've had BCM Gunfighters, and they are good, but the Raptor is the best.

BCM Mod4

if you arent going to hunt with it and have it slung across your chest, then a BCM Mod 4 is the way to go. otherwise get the mod 1.

BCM Mod4 is super popular in 3Gun.

Rainier Raptor is great....also go to Midway and check the Badger handles that can be adapted to your unit for about eighteen bucks, I believe there are three lengths.

BCM Gunfighter. Pick the version that works best for your hand size, and go. Affordable and effective.
