for AR-10 / AR308 Rifles

Hard Charger 308

The HC-10

Tired of that charging handle on your AR-10 / AR308?   Wish there was a better option, a Side Charger perhaps?  Now there is...  Check out the HC-10; the Side Charging Handle System for AR-10/AR308 rifles.

The AR-10 / AR308 rifles do not have a standard for their dimensions as you find with the Standard, Mil-Spec, AR-15 Upper Receivers.  In order for the HC-10 to work on these AR-10 / AR308 rifles, it required an adaptability with the same durability and performance as the original Hard Charger.

After years of development, the HC-10 was finalized and not only gives you the same results as the Hard Charger for the AR-15, the HC-10 has multiple adjustment points that allow it to be adapted to your AR-10 / AR308.

The all NEW HC-10

Adjustable for the varying heights between the different Upper Receivers

This adjustable design allows the mounting of the HC-10 to securely affix to the Picatinny rail while aligning itself properly to the HC-10 Receiver.


The adjustable tip designed for different Upper Receiver thicknesses

The HC-10 Adjustable Tip is able to be set and locked against varying widths of rifle receivers in order to create the dual support design of the Hard Charger.

Adjustable Picatinny mount design for the varying locations of Upper Receiver rail slots

Due to the different AR-10 / AR308 rifles Picatinny rail slot cut locations, the HC-10 mounting bolt is able to slide back and forth in the mount, and then can be secured where needed while keeping the HC-10 in the proper position.


Re-designed charging handle for better gripping and gas deflection

Fresh, new design of the HC-10 Charging Handle not only looks really cool, it is created to help reduce some gas blow-back you may get and also to help with your grip when using the HC-10 in a standard charging fashion.

Same Hard Charger Benefits you love ... Now available for your AR-10

Ergonomically Beneficial

Stay on target / return to target faster.  Use larger muscle groups with an easier to grip and manipulate handle.  Don't come down out of your stock-weld and maintain an incredible, positive control of your rifle and firing group at all times.


No knuckle-busting reciprocation here.  Just like a traditional charging handle, the HC-10 does not reciprocate and stays in its forward position until you manually pull it to the rear.

Multiple Ways to Charge

Not only do you get the benefits of using your rifle as Side Charger, you will have a back up option to charge your rifle in the standard way, from the rear of the receiver as if you are using a regular charging handle.

Field Strippable

Requires no tools to disassemble in the field and remove the charging handle, pull handle or rod.  Save time and allows expediency if required to break down the rifle and clear a bad malfunction or obstruction in the chamber/barrel.

Interchangeable from Rifle to Rifle

Does not require you to dedicate the rifle by having to rebuild or modify your AR10 in order to get the benefits of a Side Charger.  Designed to adjust in 3 separate ways to marry up to the specs of your AR10.

Gross Motor Skills

The self-thinking system allows you to not take your attention away from your focus to pay attention on actions requiring fine motor skills such as disengaging the release lever, not over-pressuring roll pin or over-torqueing the charging handle.  Even more so if you are using gloves or have objects in the way such as optics, etc.

Removes Roll Pin Stress & Reduces Charging Handle Torque

The design ensures that not only does it disengage the release lever so you don't have to worry about catching and breaking the tooth, it takes all the pressure off the roll pin so you cannot apply excess pressure and break it.  Furthermore, the dual support design makes it so you cannot over-torque the charging handle as you can do charging in a one-handed, blading fashion.

Plenty of Room for Mounting Optics & Sights

Specifically designed to be able to mount larger optics, mounts, and a BUIS.  The design allows for many, many different optic set-ups and placements.  The handle and receiver position ensures no interference with those larger mounts.
