Magpul BAD Lever- Extended Tactical Bolt Catch AR-15
The MagPul BAD (Battery Assist Device) extended bolt catch attaches to the standard AR-15 bolt catch with a backplate and screw, making for easy installation with zero permanent gun modifications. The BAD features a thin, low profile to help minimize snagging, yet offers lightning fast reloads by allowing the bolt catch/release to be engaged using the trigger finger within the trigger guard. Machined from 6061 billet aluminum for strength and durability.
NOTE: The BAD is compatible with all standard, mil-spec forged AR-15 upper/lower receivers, as well as HK416, Vltor VIS/MUR, Larue Stealth, and many other billet upper/lower combinations. It is NOT compatible with LR-308, SR-25, AR-10 or other .308 AR-style platforms.

Always had to re-position the hands to lock open the bolt. This makes it really easy. Mounts tight on the bolt catch, but wiggles a bit because of the play in the bolt catch; not a fault of the lever. Found it easier to mount if you remove the upper first.

Was pretty skeptical at first about how easy/functional it would be and for a righty, its pretty convenient to do everything one only one hand and not have to manhandle the weapon to lock the bolt back.

I use this on both my service weapon and my personal weapon. It is by far the best accessory I have ever installed. Very easy to install and easily removed if need be. Strong construction.

A little odd to install. Wish it were made of steel. Works great though.
