    I installed the charging handle on my Glock 19. I couldn’t believe how much easier racking the slide was. Bought a Glock 43X today and I going to buy one for it too.

    Easy to install. Works great. Well worth the money. Great addition to my Glock 43x. Anyone with arthritic hands will really appreciate this item.

    The GCH for Glock 43X is just what the doctor ordered. Having a weak grip, the charging handle was simple to attach and made racking a breeze. Highly recommend for seniors and people with trouble racking Glock 43X.

    I purchased the charging handle for my Glock 43 and Glock 22 about a year ago. They are great. The G43 is my wife’s gun and she has no problem with racking the slide now. I just purchased another for a G19. No reason not to have these. They do not effect holster selection also.

    Perfect fit and a super simple 1 minute of installation. Works great. I did have to trim a bit off my kydex holster so beware of that. Just used a razor knife trimmed it and melted the edge. You can’t even tell and my Glock fits with no problem. If your holster covers the whole length of the firearm you could have the same issue.

    Nice, works well, could be trimmed more on the bottom ends caught knuckle while testing.

    Easy to install. Works great. Well worth the money. Great addition to my Glock 43.

    The charging handle for my Glock 43x arrived promptly, installed easily with the enclosed allen key, and the fit to the gun is absolutely amazing. The handle looks like part of the gun, has no sharp edges, and does not interfere with either of my holsters or the Truglo TFO sights. Had been considering an aftermarket guide rod with reduced spring weight but won’t need that as the charging handle makes racking or locking back the slide way easier. Perfect! A cost effective solution for those of us with old, weak, and or smaller hands.

    Great product, does not fit the 48 MOS version with a red dot, unless you modify the top half. Product came as expected.

    My wife was having trouble so I installed this for her on her Glock 43x she loves it works great. Great price. Fast shipping. Very satisfied!

    As I’ve aged, my grip strength has declined, making it more difficult to rack the slide on my semi-auto pistols, so I bought the Charging Handle for my Glock 43X, and loved it, so I bought one for my wife’s Glock 43 and my Glock 26 too.
    Now at 82 years of age, I dropped the small bolt used to attach it in place, and couldn’t find it, so called Customer Service, and they immediately responded and sent me 2 complete sets of hardware.
    Now, that is what I call service, in fact, they did not even charge me, but gave it to me. I really value that! Real Customer Support. I’m telling my friends about this helpful accessory plus about the good Customer Service.

    First found these a couple of years ago and put them on my issue and personal G-19’s. Makes slide racking so much easier especially having osteoarthritis of the basal joint. Have begun putting them on all my Glock and Glock-clones. Only issue so far is that there’s not one for the Glock 41. The model for the G-21 doesn’t fit as the G-41’s slide is slimmer. Otherwise great product!

  13. Albert (verified owner)

    Installation to my Glock was extremely easy and I can now effortlessly charge the handle. It does not get in the way of my holster and I can’t wait to try it out at the range. Mahalos!

    Recharge handle for Glocks is an intelligently designed product, yielding very effective results. Great product, great customer service, prompt delivery….couldn’t be more satisfied. Also purchased in the past, R.T’s rail-adapters for the Sig 365XL & Glock 48. Both rails have been in use over a year, with over 1500 rounds thru each pistol holding lasers & gunlights; there’s been no loosening or slipping of the rail’s connections, at all!!…also excellent products.

    Got this and a rail kit for my G48 non-mos for Christmas. They are both great, only issue found is when both attachments are on the gun you will have to trim one or the other in order to get the slide off to clean the gun. I choose to trim the charging handle.

    Really easy to install. Does not involve a rocket scientist.made it easier for the wife to rack.looks good also.

    Like many here, I have issues with aging hands. My brother found this company and told me, so I decided to try their product for my Glock 43X. Price is fair, service was quick and the item was as easy as it gets to install. Just be careful with the screws and nuts, they are tiny. I lost a screw and the nice people of Recover sent me another set within days. I suggest getting someone with better hand ability to install the product to avoid losing small parts. This item works! I can now use my Glock without struggle. It installs with no special tools or skills and it does not affect the balance of the gun. My gun still fits in my holster and it doesn’t block my sights at all. Now I tell everyone about this item and hope they consider supporting this company. 10/10 will buy for any future guns!

    Bought this for my 43x. Wow! What a difference. Before, it was just about all I could do to rack the slide. After installing this charging handle, I was amazed at how easy it is now.

  19. Robert Lloyd (verified owner)

    These work really well on the Glock 43. Simple to install and very easy on the hands for raking the slide.
