Last week, SilencerCo announced the release of the Gas Defeating Charging Handle, also known as the GDCH. The design goal of the GDCH is to reduce the amount of gases blown back into a shooter’s face when firing a suppressed rifle. The new ambidextrous charging handle incorporates a gas seal to prevent gases from leaking out of the receiver through the charging handle slot.

Below, is the press release from SilencerCo on the new GDCH.

Press Release

SilencerCo is excited to announce the release of their new Gas Defeating Charging Handle (GDCH) which significantly redirects the blow back of gas associated with shooting AR-15 platforms. Compared to similar products on the market, SilencerCo’s Charging Handle has a unique attribute: it actually works.

The GDCH has a proprietary design feature that incorporates an O-ring seal to prevent gas from escaping from the most prominent point of egress. This seal mitigates the amount of gas that is blown back into the shooter’s face, creating a more comfortable and enjoyable shooting experience.

In addition to significantly redirecting blow back, the GDCH offers ambidextrous levers for a smooth process when charging or clearing a rifle. It is completely manufactured in-house and is machined from aircraft-grade 7075 aluminum. Shooters can utilize the GDCH with all common chamberings for the AR-15 platform.

“It’s been a long time since we have seen a product that so greatly improves the user experience while shooting the AR platform suppressed,” said Product Manager, Andrew Herbst. “Now shooters don’t have to choose between protecting their hearing and dealing with hot gas blowing into their eyes and affecting their ability to breathe. The SilencerCo Gas Defeating Charging Handle is the answer to this common problem.”

The GDCH has an MSRP of $114.00 and is available through the SilencerCo webstore and at local dealers. It will be shipped with one O-ring already installed and one spare.
