Charging Handle Latch Spring
This is the basic latch spring that comes with a charging handle. These are take-offs from our charging handle ambi upgrades. They may have grease or minor tool marks but they have never been used in an Upper.
- Spring steel construction
- Mil-Spec latch spring
- Pretty straight forward, it's a spring
- (1) OEM charging handle latch spring
- OEM Mil-Spec charging handle bodies
- Upgrade charging handle latches like the tactical and ambi (spring rates might be different but these will work)
Tools required: Pin punch, hammer
Installation notes: I install the roll pin slightly first. Once engaged in the charging handle body but not interfering with the latch slot, I drop in the spring and latch in. Use the latch to compress the spring, drop a pin punch into the roll pin hole on the other side to secure the latch in position. Now tap the roll pin home.
