AR 15 Charging handles?
I have a S&W mp 15 version of the AR 15. I love the gun but I am not the biggest fan of the way that the charging handle operates. When ever i cock the gun i have to put my fingers on both sides of the rifle in order to draw back the charging handle. Does anyone know of any other styles of charging handles than the stock version? Or is there a reason to keep the stock charging handle?

No reason the keep the original. As a matter of fact, if you have a scope it may be necessary to replace.
Badger Ordnance makes a good one. It replaces the small latch with a larger handle so you can charge with one finger.

Badger Ordnance also makes an ambidextrous charging handle. You can grab either side to operate.
Double Star also makes one of these, maybe a few other manufacturers as well.
