Longhorn Slide Pull Charging Handle
Ratings & Reviews
Easy at 80
by Ron Wilson Jr
Thanks, I first ordered the extended mag release which I finally had to take to a gunsmith to install. Couldn’t get the pin out.
Now the shorthorn charging handle. I’m 80 and these items brought fun back to my shooting.
Shorthorn Charging handle
Works great and does not get in the way. Highly recommend this.
Making it easy and fast to rack the slide .
Hard on the finger, so I used a round file and took out about another quarter inch so my finger goes right into it . I have an older Glock 30 and it was also a loose fit , I did not like that at all . I do not want it moving up and down. The model 30 has a very wide slide but it was loose and I had to shim it to get a snug fit. . Also the inside going inward is not like the original cover plate that fits perfect, it should not hurt the firing pin or anything anyways, Also I think they could have made that charging handle a whole lot thinner , half that thickness on the steel.
My thumb thanks you...

Works better than advertised! Arthritic thumb pain interfered with locking the slide and/or showing clear. My new Shorthorn charging handle on the Glock 19 is just what the doctor ordered. Installation for this non-gunsmith was super easy and took less than 60 seconds. If your thumbs hurt, buy this!
A very helpful part.
I got one of these no horn ambi charging handles for my wife to try out on my Glock 19 gen 3. She liked it so much that she bought her very own Glock 19 gen 3 and I put that one on hers.
Every girl that has either tried it out or shot the gun with it on there has found it so much easier to pull the slide back and control the slide to engage the extended slide catch / release that I run as well.
She had tried out several others guns, but the no horn ambi charging handle on a Glock 19 made all the difference.
So I'm buying another one to put back on my Glock 19 in case she needs to use it in a pinch.
