Haven't got it to the range yet as it didn't come in before last weekend when I last went. But manipulating it running through action drills it feels excellent. I'm a lefty and have mostly run standard charging handles. I've run ambi charging handles before on other peoples rifles but never tried the Raptor till now. Very nice. The left hand grip side is a little longer and grabbing it above the forward assist is not a problem. Both sides disconnect the charging handle latch and both have ribbing and a shape that make for a solid grip and fast action. Lots of lefties and weak hand shooter should like this a lot.
