Speaking of new Strike Industries (SI) products for your tactical AR (AR-15) rifle/carbine/SBR (Short Barreled Rifle), back in May (2017), DefenseReview (DR) published a quick piece (with video) on the Strike Industries SI Strike Latchless Charging Handle with ergonics-enhancing SI ISO-Tabs, which looked good to us. Well, both are now available in various colors. The latest Strike Latchless Charging Handles are available in Black, Grey, Red, Blue and FDE (Flat Dark Earth), while the new ISO-Tab are available in all the same colors, except Grey.

So, what’s an ISO-Tab? Think of the SI ISO-Tabs as hitting your SI Strike Latchless Charging Handle with a shot of performance-enhancing steroids, only legal. They make the Strike Latchless Charging Handle a bit larger with more gripping surface on both sides, thus enhancing your weapons-handling performance (ease and speed).

The Strike Industries SI Strike Latchless Charging Handle with ISO-Tabs provides great ergonomics and performance via a sleek and very slick, minimalist design. Really an interesting product combo.

The following info on both products comes directly from the Strike Industries website:

SI Strike Latchless Charging Handle Description:

“The Strike Latchless Charging Handle represents yet another step forward for the AR 15. Simple in its execution, yet robust and reliable, the revolutionary Strike Latchless Charging Handle offers forged 7075 construction, efficient side gas venting, and a solid, comfortable interface for the user. Reliable receiver lockup is achieved through a novel hidden spring mechanism that uses the Charging Handle insertion slot in the upper receiver charging handle channel. This channel features a natural radius that will not wear rapidly like the external, 90-degree edge of the standard CH latch area of the upper receiver. The flat spring bearing surface is much larger than a steel ball bearing, spreading force and wear out over a larger area. Increased service life is one benefit of this type of system, as is the comfort and peace of mind that come from a lack of moving or external components that can break or snag/catch on your gear and foreign objects. The solid aluminum construction is durable and provides a solid mounting point for the ISO Tabs, an add-on component that increases surface area for those using large optics and/or gloved hands.

WARNING: For standard mil-spec AR15 only. Not rated for suppressors and /or full auto fire. Not for use on SBRs or pistol length barrels (<14.5″)

-1x Ambi Charging Handle

– Net Weight: 0.9 oz
