And if you happen to own a SIG P320 and need some help manipulating your gun’s slide, you’re in luck. The Strike Industries Side Charging Handle for the SIG P320 is designed to make running your gun easier without making any permanent changes to your firearm.

The Strike Industries Side Charging Handle for the SIG P320 is an aftermarket accessory created to give gun owners an easier-to-grip surface for racking the slide. It’s not uncommon for hand injuries or arthritis to cause trouble manipulating the slide of a handgun, and it’s great to have options other than getting a different gun. It’s versatile, too, because this charging handle is made to be ambidextrous so it can be used on either side of the P320 depending on the user’s needs.

Another part of this accessory’s versatility is the fact that it’s compatible with red dot sights and irons, so however you choose to run your gun, you’re set.  This device is made for fast, straightforward installation with the steel rear Slide Cover Mount. Rubber pads are included to be installed on the back side facing the slide to protect the gun’s finish. Strike Industries states this charging handle is designed to be installed with no permanent modification of the weapon or slide. The charging handle has a steel mount with a lightweight aluminum handle for durability and ease of use.
