Other things to consider would be operation of the charging handle. If you’ve got a bulky optic mounted toward the rear of your upper receiver, you probably want something with an extended latch so you can get a good grip on the handle. If you’re left handed, then you definitely want to try an Ambidextrous Charging Handle although there are many other good reasons that shooters choose an ambidextrous charging handle as well.
