I’m 65 with a bad case of arthritis and really needed to upgrade to the 2 finger charging handleI guess all subbies are like that. I'm an old man and mine felt impossible for a while. Working it a lot will make it easier after a short while, especially with the cover.
First thing is to lube it , then go to MCarbo and purchase the extended charging handleI just purchased a sub 2000 gen 2 glock 17 9mm model.
First stupid question.
I can't pull the charging handle back to the locked position. Am I doing something wrong, or am I just a wimp?
Nope. That's pretty normal. I was in the same boat as you: one finger charging handle is crazy hard to pull. Best thing you can do is get yourself a two-finger charging handle from Mcarbo. Also, if the rifle is new(<1000 rounds), it will be hard. Once the rifle is broken in, it will become butter-smooth and easy to do.I can't pull the charging handle back to the locked position. Am I doing something wrong, or am I just a wimp?
I also wear a padded shooting glove. Doesn't tear your finger up, and makes it much easier to rack.The padding makes it much easier for me. I haven't tried the two finger handle, but I didn't like the metal handle against the skin of my finger because it tended to bruise and I feel that the two finger handle will just bruise two fingers. And for nearly 10 times the cost of the Tacticool cover, I don't think I'll try it.
