Anyone know if the PTS Rainier Ambi Charging Handle fits the LM4? If not, anyone know what mods need to be done to it?

It doesn't, yet. PTS should be releasing the KWA/KSC compatible model soon, Id recommend just waiting rather than grinding away at the WA Model.

Check out the third party compatibility page if you can't wait. A user here modified the chinese knock off version to work.

ShooterCBgear and Ebairsoft had them, they're like $15-20 if I remember right. Id personally wait for the PTS compatible model as itll very likely be better quality and will drop right in. Plus it'll have licensed trademarks as well.

I do agree I just like to see what's out there and look at them.

I can see where the part needs some work. If the part is out in the near future I'll wait otherwise I'll just bust out the mill and work this one over then DuraCoat it.

How much was shipping? They're usually outrageous.

Depends on which method you choose. If you choose AirMail it'll be like ~$6. If you choose Express Mail, it's like $16.

Just got mine in the mail from WGC. At first it looked like it came in without trades, but then I saw the black tape they put over everything. Sweet charging handle. Now I just have to wait for my mother loving LM4 to come in.

They covered up the trades?! It's a licensed product?

No, no, no. Don't worry. They use black tape to cover the trades to get past customs. It very much so has full Rainier Arms trades on it. You just have to peel the tape off (which is extremely easy because it's just tape). I was just saying that I was worried when I opened the little package and saw no trades, but then I noticed the little tape strip.

Moral of the story is: Peel off tape.

Yup, same with mine. I think the chamfers on the top of the handle are not deep enough. Did some filing and got it a bit smoother. Also the bolt gas bit gets stuck in the channel and the end of it is rounded rather than 90 degree edges like the standard handle.
