Broken CA36K charging handle

So I just sheered my Charging handle on my CAG36k, and when i ask around, everyone says, oh just buy the metal bolt carrier, well see that part is fine, its the little lever that moves 180 degrees (ambidextrous charging handle) that broke off. I cant find anyone who sells replacement parts, especially CA which i know is hard to find anyways. Do they make after market parts for this, or better yet, will a TM bolt carrier assembly work in a CA? Or am i gonna hve to crazy glue it?

One way is to find a TM36C manual. If that little plastic handle appears the same in the TM manual as it does in the CA manual AND has its own part number, you should be able to get a replacement by contacting JAFA with the part number and description.

Other way is to type G36 into the search bars of WGC, UNCo and RW and see if anything pops up.

well yes but no one carries replacements, that or they only carry the bolt carrier, and not the lever however, CA sells the whole assembly, but i cant seem to find a way to buy one without owning a business...

Most likely, which is why I said to compare the manuals.

*goes looking for manual...*

Now that we know it's a weak point, we'll order some of these from CA to have on hand.

schwing, ive contacted CA myself about the metal one, HoJo i also sent you an email about the metal one. Im picking up a TM set just to be safe second hand, so we will know in case. In the pics I took you can see how weak the design is...

It was a clean break, in fact if you've never seen a G36 before, you couldn't tell it was even broken.
