To Operate HABU Mod 1 for 5.56mm/.223. With your dominant hand trigger finger indexed outside of the trigger guard, take your non-dominate hand with your thumb to the rear, in one motion grasp, pull to the rear and release. Rapidly re-engage your target with the solid cheek weld HABU Mod 1 provides.

The HABU was designed by veterans who saw a need for an integral M4/AR15 cheek riser. This was needed to better align the shooters eye with magnified optics with short eye reliefs. The Army and Marine Corps both issue magnified optics to their ground troops. For many years it has been impossible for most shooters to attain a proper sight picture without goose-necking, until now. The HABU solves this issue and will provide the solution that many asked for, yet only Falcon 37 delivered.

Why HABU Mod 1 is a Must Have AR Accessory
By combining the charging handle and cheek rest HABU Mod 1 not only accelerates and improves operation of the AR platform, it looks BAD-ASS like it belongs there! Using Major v.s. minor motor skills for it s operation which is critical for Entry Teams, Military personnel and other high stress environments, the shooter can more effectively grip HABU to get his or her gun back in the fight. HABU Mod 1's gripping surface works just as well under wet, muddy or bloody conditions.
A shooter must have consistent, proper cheek weld on any gun platform they re shooting. The charging handle on the AR platform prevents attachment of most cheek rest devices without stock modifications. Falcon 37 Inc. wanted to create an ergonomic cheek rest device that wouldn t get in the way of a charging handle while keeping the shooters cheek in the proper position using optics. Having proper cheek weld on the gun minimizes the time the shooter spends chasing the red dot or reticle with their eye.

    AMAZING PRODUCT

    Posted by Norman Hopins on Oct 27th 2017

    The HABU solved my issue of access to the Charging Handle with my optics.

    I love the simplicity, the action, and how natural it feels.

    Great for Experienced Shooters

    Posted by Dennis D. on Dec 27th 2016

    One of the reasons I made this purchase was I thought it would be easy muscle memory to build for my daughter and similar to a semi-auto pistol. While it works great for me and my larger hands and experience level, she can not complete a full pull to the rear under target shooting conditions let alone a high stress situation.

    My only recommendation for improvement is to give it a better surface for grip. It is smooth and even for the experienced shooter in a high stress situation it can slip. I plan to add some grip tape to mine.

    Easy to function

    Once you get used to it you will find it easier to cycle than the standard charging handle.

    Very nice mod

    Posted by Rhino87 on Sep 22nd 2016

    This charging handle mod is great! The increase in speed, the total ambidextrous ability and the fact that only major muscle groups are required to operate mean that you will always be in a better way when that time comes.

    Great new product/ 1 small issue

    Posted by AJ on Sep 22nd 2016

    The HABU is a pretty cool charging handle. It's very tough, and looks awesome on my rifle. It's pretty pricey. But. With a little practice to get it down in my muscle memory I'm sure it'll be worth the price. The only thing that I can think of that would make it better. (Just my opinion) but it's a really hard plastic and doesn't have much grip. Could use some stippling or some sort of built in grip or something. Just on the edges of it. I realize it doubles as a cheek rest. So. You wouldn't want sandpaper or something like that against your face trying to take a shot. Over all. I'm really happy with the HABU. I'd like to have a few more. But, I wait till hopefully the price drops some.

    Habu charging handle

    Posted by David LaBonte on Sep 22nd 2016

    Love BCM, innovation, reliability and service. Was hesitant to purchase the HABU, seeing that I use the BCM charging handle already, but I am glad that I did...increased speed & nice cheek weld enhancement. I guess I just had to go next gen on the AR platform

    Well done
