Ambidextrous Charging Handle

I’m fairly new to firearms and was curious. On a rifle that is designed for the charging handle to be placed on either side why would you not put one on both sides? Wouldn’t that give you an advantage in some situations? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum, Mark.

I’ve done that before on my PC9 to see which side I liked it on. I suppose it could be advantageous if you’re shooting around corners or lying prone but I didn’t find it enough of a benefit to offset being more awkward to carry in a bag because of the extra width. YMMV

Nothing wrong with having a spare charging handle and mounting screw.
