CSS Saiga VEPR AK47 Knurled charging handle

Alternative Views:

Price: $25.95

Stock Status:


Bolts on to the existing charging handle to give you an enhanced (and smooth) oversized knob to operate your weapon easily.

This will work on all Vepr Rifles and Shotguns, Saiga Rifles and Shotguns, most AK 47's and Catamount Fury. Does not fit Lynx 12 and Cheetah/DDI 12.

Made in the USA of high quality black oxide steel.

Measures slightly longer than the other charging handles at 1 1/8"

Installation Instructions
1. Run the set screw completely through the handle, until it drops out into the center bore. That will ensure that screw is not stopping on any foreign debris left over from sand blasting.
2. Clean and degrease both the threads in the handle and the set screw with contact cleaner and allow to dry completely.
3. Apply red #262 Loctite to BOTH the set screw and the threads in the charging handle.
4. With the bolt carrier installed in the receiver, slide the charging handle over the OEM handle and start the set screw. The set screw should be facing or pointing forward. Slowly turn the set screw inward as you wiggle the handle in order to allow the set screw to find the "sweet spot" in the saddle of the OEM handle.
5. Using a large 4.5" long allen wrench, hoss that screw down until you think it's about to break. It won't.

5 of 5 Great quality and fast shipping July 30, 2021
Reviewer: David Richter from Cameron Park, CA United States  
I bought this knurled charging handle for a bolt carrier with an adjustable KNS gas piston I built for my Arsenal Sam7R. Great quality, easy to installed and most importantly looks cool. I used Blue Locktite and I did retighten after the first range day. It was all good after that.

5 of 5 Great product at a good price! July 28, 2021
Reviewer: Jonathan Sutton from Eminence, KY United States  
The title says it all! Great product at a good price. Makes reaching underneath the AKM to chamber a round after reload easier. Easy installation with directions on the CCS website. 10/10 would recommend!

5 of 5 Excellent product June 30, 2021
Reviewer: Tall handsome stranger  
At first, I could rack my bolt and charge my rifle.
Now, I can rack my bolt and charge my rifle.  
10/10 as advertised.
I’ve got big hands so this thing lets me get a great purchase on the charging handle. The knurling only improves this. I always have a secure grip when I rack my bolt now, with zero discomfort.
The instructions on the website were perfect, I hossed that thing down and it did NOT break. I did a dry run and found the sweet spot before applying loctite and screwing it down. I recommend this step. At first I thought it might end up at an angle instead of 90 degrees, but once I finished hossing the set screw down it was as aesthetically pleasing as it was functional.

Reviewer: Michael Filby from Phoenix, AZ United States  
It only installs one way. Works flawlessly.

The only issues are it dosent come with the allen key to install it and now i cycle the action on my AK far more than I need too.
