SilencerCo Releases a Gas Defeating Charging Handle That Actually Works

February 10, 2022 — West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo is excited to announce the release of their new Gas Defeating Charging Handle (GDCH) which significantly redirects the blowback 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 blowback, 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.

A look at the testing SilencerCo conducted to prove the efficacy of the GDCH.

“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.

  • Uses an O-ring seal to redirect blow back 
  • Machined from aircraft grade 7075 aluminum

    I saw the press release and couldn’t tell where the O-ring was located. Any clue?

    A PRI Gas Buster is 80-90 bucks and doesn’t use consumable parts… this thing is overpriced.

    Or you could buy an HUXWRX (formerly OSS) suppressor that eliminates the blowback problem altogether.
