There was a guy on the LWRC forum that produced a folding charging handle for the LWRC REPR. Does anybody know him or know of a mod for this? Love the side charging handle but wish it was more streamlined. Any help or direction appreciated. The picture attached is the one he was producing. His handle was Mountainman I think

I remember you from their forum. I have no idea. It was a decent forum. Wish I could make this happen. Might have to take a shot at machining one myself. I have the equipment.

I remember that thread. I believe he was going to produce them but it fizzled. Reps at LWRC mentioned that they had a version in the works but that never came to fruition either (shocker). If someone ever made one that worked well I'd buy four of them.

When the LWRC was down for the first few days I emailed Logan Betterton to inquire as to whether they killed it or what. He told me that they were updating things and that it would be back but no ETA. Months went by. I inquired again with the same response. I think it's dead for keeps.

Too bad. Once a pretty sweet company, seems to have fallen off a cliff.

I believe the basis for all of theses are inch FAL folding charging handles and the guy mentioned had a business making those handles fit on metric FALs without the Para cut upper.

It's not rocket science but probably too much trouble to set up for making one.

I would agree, even though I told him I'd gladly pay 100.00 for a single if it was worth it, likely not. His email is no longer active or he doesn't want to respond. If i could find the inch FAL handle I bet i could get it done myself, but I can't even find that.

Moon cake, after telling him I had takers for 5 he started responding with more enthusiasm. I might have to start a new thread to gauge public interest. Know anyone else who would want one?

Most likely thing to happen is I'll have to buy at least 5 if not more to get him to do anything. I may just get a consensus here and collect everyones info and cash and redistribute myself. If he charges me 80 each then I can sell them to you guys for 90 each shipped UPS. Would that be agreeable to all?
