While the Advantage seems to have been designed for competition or speed shooters, I found it is an intuitive addition for left hand shooters, and a welcome alternative for right handed shooters. No matter the size and shape of the charging handle or the tension of the return spring (sub, normal or high), the Advantage operates the bolt as smoothly as using the right hand charging handle but does not interfere or restrict the bolt operation when shooting. Installation is no more difficult than any optics mount on a 10/22; however, one should use caution and not over tighten the mounting screws. Besides the left hand charging handle, the only other noticeable difference if the height of the rail; if this is a replacement optics mount, it may be slightly taller than the one it is replacing. Additionally, the length of the rail may be slightly shorter so minimum ring spacing for the intended optic should be checked. All in all, this is a well built, solid application that can only provide positive benefits.
