I assume you mean the tip where it comes into contact with the bolt?...wonder if that Guarder KSC model fits.

Unfortunately also aluminum, don't know why they made all these steel upgrade parts and made the charging handle aluminum. Though perhaps its a stronger type? *shrugs*

Well it was actually a teammate of mine that was firing the gun when it broke. His nickname is wear and tear because everything he touches breaks lol..but yea i wouldnt mind having one made of a milder steel then the bolt. Gonna see if i could get one made from a local cnc shop.

If you do, might as well get it made ambidextrous

Good to know just in case my handle ever breaks, why do you think it broke in that area?

Not to sure bro..im gonna guess its the top of the bolt that the charging handle makes contact on when pulling it back giving in over time..

It is the same area that
G&P WOC, King Arms, and WE break at.
It's the material, they're made by casting. Should you use cast steel, cut steel or CNC steel/aluminium problem will disappear.
