VR80 oversized Charging handle

Probably the best upgrade you can do to this weapon!! Makes charging a lot easier. The charging handle is a quality piece made right here in the USA. If you own a VR80 make it better with this small but very functional upgrade.

Very solid piece of metal and extremely helpfull that the hole for the retaining ball is on both sides. Literally cannot mess this up. Good product good quality

Works For SDX-12 Too!

Purchased this handle in hopes that it would fit my Hatsan SDX-12 after I lost it at a range day, and it snaps in perfectly. Shipping was extremely fast and this thing is STURDY!

This charging handle is well built. I got the gold one and it’s perfect. Replaced the broken one on my citadel boss 25. Fits in perfect and stays in but still easy to remove. The little nubs on the sides help protect from over insertion. If you’re looking to upgrade your charging handle or replace the factory one that may have been bent from shipping, this is the one.

Boss 25 bolt handle
Written by Roy Huerta on Jun 4th 2021

The original bolt handle on my Boss 25 did not have a tight fit and I was afraid of losing it due to recoil. This replacement one fits way better.

Excellent product, locks in solid and keeps you from cutting your hands. Highly recommend if your using this shotgun for competition use

I’ve got a Boss 25 and the charging handle flew off somewhere in the woods behind the house. I ordered the over sized as a replacement being most parts fit between the VR 80 and Boss 25. It works perfectly. Even fits so much better than the original. Couldn’t be happier with the product or the service from Hayes.

Written by Whit Blackwell on Dec 13th 2020

I recently ordered and picked up a brand new Rock Island VR80 shotgun. Awesome Weapon!! The first things I ordered, were four 9-round magazines, along with this oversized charging handle. This piece is a bit pricey at $40.00, but it is of Very High Quality. It looks Awesome installed in the gun!! I would highly recommend this charging handle, along with the 9-round magazines, to any owner of the VR80 shotgun. Hayes Custom Guns is Very Professional!! A Complete Pleasure to do business with!!

Very well made .Love that it has stops made into it so it does not push thru the bolt when you lay it on its side. Would highly recommend
