Nordic Components vs Benelli charge handle weight if your interested.


Recommended Posts

Hi all. New to this group. Have been a happy Benelli M1 Super 90 Tactical (non pistol grip) owner for over 10 years.


Anyways I took some weight measurements of the Nordic Components and Benelli charge handles with my Dillon beam scale. Thought others might be interested as I could not find this information before.


Benelli charge handle

203.0 gr

13.15 g

.4229 oz


Nordic Components charge handle 151% heavier

306.6 gr

19.87 g

.6388 oz


Feel of the NC handle is worlds better. Just a tad sharpness to the outer edge but does not pose a problem in the direction of pull.


I have not had a chance to shoot it yet and probably wont any time soon as I am stuck in the city.


I tried to find a Ti non-rotating handle. Freedom Fighters Tactical has only a M4 version but when I emailed them I got the response " Keep an eye on our sight through the year end...". So keep your fingers crossed. Progressive Machine and Tools seems to be out of business (even though web site still up). If I have missed a company please speak up.

I searched for all 3.

CarrierComp does not seem to have the flat sided oval that keeps it from rotating. Am I wrong?

Design Concepts I cannot seem to find on the internet other than being mentioned in forums. You have a link?

GG&G also seems to be a rotating handle from what I see on their website.

Again correct me if I am wrong as I want to be wrong on these.

My mistake, I didn't see that this was M1 specific. I was reading the site from my phone. Design Concepts did make a charging handle for the M1, but I'm afraid they're no longer in business.


The Design Concepts handle that I have will rotate if you force it, but it doesn't just freely spin. I don't believe carriercomp has one for the M1, yet.
