Falcon 37 HABU Interesting Cheek Rest AR-15 Charging Handle

Mad operatorish:

Woooooo that promo video too right?  Gunshots on the beat and dubstep are two of the top 5 ways to my approval.

This product actually does look pretty cool.  Yea sure the OG AR-15 charging handle we’ve been using since Vietnam works fine.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it?  The thing I like most about this one is the reduction of gasses which normally come out around the regular charging handle.  That would come in especially handy when shooting suppressed.  And yes I know there are better “normal” charging handles available which reduce the gasses too.  Seems like the major selling feature of this that sets it 100% apart from the rest is the way you charge it… like a pistol slide they say.  Is that a good thing or a bad thing?  I don’t know, I guess it means you’re relearning how to use your AR-15 for a bit if you decide to throw one of these on it.  One more thing, this HABU is obviously going to be slightly more heavy so I know you “OUNCES EQUAL POUNDS BrAh!” guys are immediately going to scoff at its existence.

Falcon-37-HABU-Cheek-Rest-AR15-Charging-HandleOh and lets get something out of the way… “Falcon 37” … “HABU”?   I really hope those names have some significance, because they sound ridiculous and are difficult to remember.  I couldn’t find any explanation on the website.  Also, I’m curious how new one product companies with “Management Teams” and “Advisory boards” (7 people right now in Falcon 37) actually make any money.  So much veteran flexing on that linked page.  I never really understood that.  The only reason I can think of to do that is some people must be so dumb their thought process consists of “Did any TIER 1 operators endorse, design, advise, or have any hand in this product at all?”  If yes, BUY *throws money at screen*. If no then keep looking for something more operator. Come to think of it, I guess credential flexing is done in every profession. I prefer to let the products prove / speak for themselves. *shrug*

If you’re interested in one of these charging handles you can hit up Falcon 37 and buy one for $138 through the Brownells pre-order link.
