When I reload an AKM (or any AK variant), I drop the buttstock of the rifle down under my arm and roll the magazine well in toward my center line. This makes visually guiding the magazine into the magazine well easy but it means that I am essentially operating blind when I reach for the charging handle. It would be nice to have a larger target for my hand when operating by feel like this and that is essentially what the Tromix Bolt-On Oversize Charging Handle provides.
The Bolt-On Oversize Charging Handle bolts directly on to the AK’s charging handle without modification. Tromix states that it will work with any AK-47 and it is available with a smooth or checkered surface. The Bolt-On Oversize Charging Handle should make the charging handle a bit easier to operate at the expense of adding some bulk and weight.

Love the install instructions!
“5. Using a large 4.5” long allen wrench, hoss that screw down until you think it’s about to break. It won’t. “
Agreed. I got a kick out of that too.
