Battle Arms Development RACK Ambidextrous Charging Handle

Battle Arms Development recently announced their RACK Ambidextrous Charging Handle.  Here is the info on what to expect:

BATTLEARMS™ RACK Ambidextrous Charging Handle Founders Edition and Early Adopter Specials

Truly Original: The revolutionary new mechanism is unlike any other charging handle on the market. We are pleased to receive U.S. Utility Patent No. 9964371, 9810494, 9587896.

No Weak Roll Pins:  Even the best-designed products fail at their weakest point and we have taken the infamous roll pins out of the equation. The RACK™ was designed with no roll pins.

Smooth Sliding Latch:  Not another pivoting mechanism to wear out the upper receiver notch, this patented latch system slides parallel with the receiver notch for slick and quick release and simultaneously minimizes wear.

Asymmetric Charging:  Purpose built with asymmetric use in mind, the RACK™ will handle left or right side pulls with ease. Regardless of your charging handle racking technique, the RACK™ will perform with consistent and positive assurance.

Monolithic Modular Handle:  Machined from one single piece of aluminum, the RACK™ handle was designed with strength in mind. It is also key to the sliding latch and the positive and balanced pull of the charging handle.

MADE IN THE USAThe RACK™ is designed and engineered in the United States.  It is precision CNC machined from billet 7075 T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum in our brand-new manufacturing facility in Henderson, Nevada.  Coated in a hard anodize black finish.

SHOT 2017 – Battle Arms Development


Battle Arms Development had a lot to announce for 2017.

Aside from their typical BADass painted weapons, like this Iron Man AR-15…

…they also had the “300 PDW” in .300 BLK that was nicknamed “Woody”.

This PDW features a real wood handguard attachment and pistol grip and a faux wood cheekweld.

BAD has developed a currently unnamed 10″ handguard weighing in at 7.3 oz with a $TBD MSRP.

BAD has also partnered up with TriggerTech to introduce the B.A.D. edition trigger.

This fully adjustable trigger (2.5-5#) comes in either a straight/flat or curved variant.  The adjustment can be made while the trigger is installed by using an allen wrench on the rear of the top of the trigger housing.

BAD also introduced an Ultra Compact 4.75″ Pistol Buffer Tube (sorry no photo available).  The Tube uses the same buffer as the BAD Vert Stock.  The MSRP for the tube and buffer is $225.

BAD is also working on some California Compliant gear.  They are working on a variant of their lightweight billet lower receiver with a integrated magazine release plunger.

Note the plunger on the top of the lower receiver (silver dot).

When depressed (i.e. the upper receiver firmly seated against the lower), the plunger will not allow the magazine release button to be depressed.  BAD has developed a rear take-down pin that when turned in one direction and pulled out, will allow the upper receiver to crack open slightly to allow for the magazine release button to be depressed while disabling the firearm.

The rear take-down pin can also be turned the other direction and pulled out to allow the upper receiver to open fully.  This is all still in the process of being designed and approved for legal compliance.
