Frequently asked questions about the TacOps-1
Q? Will the TacOps-1 handle fit all Mfg’s rifles?
A: NO! Not all Manufactures have followed the original Colt pattern as we have. Some Mfg’s have changed their upper receiver designs, while others have QC fluctuations. PLEASE REVIEW OUR WARRANTY PAGE FOR OUR COMPLETE DISCLAIMER!
Q?How do we know which rifles or manufacturers changed their designs or have QC issues?
A: Here is a list of the weapons in which we have found our handle, and other handles would not fit correctly due to one or both of the above mentioned issues:
Rock River Arms – .308 cal
Stag Arms Co. – Model-8
SR-25 – Some older 1st Generation rifles only !
SIG – 716 – .308 cal
S&W - M&P-10
Q?Has your company found a way to make the TacOps-1 fit some of these weapons correctly?
A: No! Not any of the weapons on this list due to actual design changes to those areas in their weapons. However, we have found from time to time that our TacOps-1 handle may fit a bit tight in other Mfg’s weapons due to their own QC issues. Most of the industries QC issues appear to be volume related and not by poor efforts, as the sales demand for all military style weapons has rocketed skyward.
Q?If the TacOps-1 handle fits tightly in my own weapon, what fix is recommended?
A: Of course our recommendation is to ALWAYS take your weapon to a qualified Gun-Smith for any of this type of work. That being said, it has come to our attention through a few do-it-your-selfers, that they used a barrel lapping compound to affect small changes in the required areas. Doing so, we are told, actually lapped the handle into the receiver slot perfectly, enhancing their ability to charge the weapon with even more ease than the design affords to begin with. Albeit this has worked for a few people, we still recommend having your local Gun-Smith doing the work.
Q?Has there ever been any safety related issues with your product?
A: None at all! THE TacOps-1 CHARGING HANDLE HAS BEEN DESIGNED DIRECTLY FROM COLT ARMS CO. ORIGINAL MIL-SPEC AND WILL FIT AND WORK SAFELY WITHIN ANY M4/AR15/M16/AR10 or VARIANT TYPE RIFLE PLATFORM FROM ANY MANUFACTURER WHICH HAS ALSO BEEN DESIGNED AND PRODUCED TO THE ORIGINAL COLT ARMS CO. SPECIFICATIONS AND HELD THOSE SPEC’S WITHIN THEIR QUALITY CONTROL PROGRAM.
Q? Will the coating on your TacOps-1 hold up under military conditions?
A: Yes, our handles have been designed in all aspects from the aircraft alloy 7075 raw material, to all the small parts and final coating. Our handles are the required Mil-Spec-2 coating, not the industry standard anodized coat.
