NEW DB15 AR
« on: December 03, 2018, 12:34:28 PM »
Just picked up my first AR over the weekend, DB15. Big gun guy, but have never purchased an AR or have even shot one. I am loving the way the DB15 feels, first thing I want to change is the charging handle for sure. What suggestions do you guys have? I appreciated the feedback.

What's wrong with the charging handle?

I have a DB15 FDE and the charging handle is fine.  Mine came with a lot of aftermarket pieces so I don't know if the handle is original, but on mine I would not change a thing.

I have bigger hands and I have seen other charging handles that have more area to grab. I feel like the one that came on the AR I purchased is just a little smaller than I'd like.

Does yours have the latch on the left hand side like this?

That makes it easy to grip.

Has something similar, but a fair amount smaller than the one shown.

I like that.  I have big hands too.  So far mine has not been any trouble.  Still, maybe for Christmas... :main_good:

I've heard great things about it from a few people and all the reviews are good for it. I'm looking to change a few things with this AR, you know first one.

Mine is a first one too.  It came with lots of goodies.  Magpul MBUS sites, an in the trigger guard bolt release, vertical foregrip.  About all I've changed is new mags and a Leupold 1.5-4x20 scope.  It's on sale this week.

That's awesome! I'm either going to go with flip up sights or a reflex sight.

Yeah, it's a great way to start.  I had the Magpul flit ups and I still do.  I put a red dot on it and could just co-witness with the flip up sites.  I like it but I'm useless past 100 yards without magnification so I'm trying the Leupold.  I don't anticipate needing much more than that, but the rifle is capable of a least 400 yards so why not let it?
