It's called the charging handle.

That's one of the best names I've heard for the charging handle. I'll be adopting it.

 

On a serious note: Is this the AEG or GBBR? I'd guess AEG from it being plastic, but from you snapping it I'd imagine it's possibly the GBBR as there's no point in using it except to reveal the hop otherwise.

 

AEG - too short to be a GBBR charging handle. Should have spotted that sooner.

 

Edit

Here's the manual people: http://www.gb-tech.com.tw/downloads/Umarex_M27IAR_AEG_parts_list.pdf

 

We're looking for part 01-11. Best bet for OP would be to directly contact VFC and order the spare through them.

 

Failing that just buy some JB Weld and glue it. Tends to be stronger than most of the plastics they use anyway so gluing it with a decent epoxy may be a better idea than buying a new one that's just going to break again at some point.

You could probably use a 416 or even M4 charging handle at a pinch. Make sure you get the same manufacturer though (VFC) as the profile of the little plastic bit on the end is subtly different from place to place (voice of experience).

Honestly I'm still thinking gluing is the better option here - decent epoxies hold far, far stronger than the cheapo plastics most companies use for internals so if anything it'd be an upgrade. Also, that part is obviously completely obscured by the upper so there's no way you'd see the join.

Yeh, JB Weld - just their normal one. Takes about 24 hours to cure but it's very strong. Give it 48 hours if you can. Make sure you clean the surface first and rough it up a little with sandpaper or a nail file before applying it.

Just be careful to wipe off the excess epoxy before it sets though, too much and the handle won't slide properly.
