WTK 416 charging handle

2568 6
I plan to shoot a suppressed 10.3" 416. Would a PRI gasbuster charging handle be effective with this piston driven system or is it effective for the gas tube system only. Thanks in advance for the replies.

I've heard that the PRI gasbusters on a 416 will eventually lead to catastrophic failure. I have no idea why, but I plan on contacting the person who stated such information and find out who their source was. I can get back to you when I find out if this information is true or not.

Since the 416 does not introduce propellent gases into the upper receiver, there is no reason to use a 'gas buster" charging handle. if you want a larger gripping surface, that is another story.

The 416 with 10 inch barrel still gives you a good amount of blowback (from the chamber) in the face when shooting suppressed. Not nearly as much as a standard 10 inch '16, but still an unpleasant amount.
