    A charging handle was never on my list of accessories for my Glock 23 as none that I had seen offered solid performance and ease of use UNTIL I found the UCH17.

    Having seen the different methods to cock/chamber check that a slide mounted optic give, I quickly realized that the added height of that design has great merit. HOWEVER, the current pricing of optics and the cost of milling a slide for my preferred mount put that combination far down on my list of things to do to my gun.

    Enter Recover Tactical and the UCH17…
    At $30, the improvement is an investment that pays great dividends.

    Even with just the lower profile upper, the improved grip is phenomenal, but don’t take my word for it, check out Instructor Zero’s video of using it WET AND OILY!

    If you have to find a flaw in everything, sure there is the added width that will print more in concealed carry, but I’ll work around that any day to know that I can do full manipulations one handed, if needed.

    Added note: my Glock is hydro-dipped and the polymer construction of the charging handle has shown no wear on the finish after being removed and installed 5 times.
