A good BAD!
I am a left handed shooter and the standard bolt release is very awkward for me. With the addition of the BAD it is now very functional for a left handed shooter ands
Still very easy for a right handed shooter to operate as well.

Magpul B.A.D. Lever Features:

The Magpul Battery Assist Device or B.A.D. Lever is designed to considerably improve the speed and efficiency of the AR15/M16 bolt catch, by allowing the user to quickly address reloading and malfunction clearance shortcomings of AR15/M16 platforms by extending a paddle to the right side of the weapon, allowing manipulation of the bolt stop from the fire control/ready position with the right-hand trigger finger. Made from milspec-anodized aluminum, the B.A.D. Lever attaches to the standard AR15/M16 bolt release without permanent modification to the weapon. Functional for both left and right-handed shooters, the B.A.D. Lever also allows traditional bolt catch manipulation according to the AR15/M16 manual of arms. All mounting hardware included. Not compatible with some billet lowers and non-standard bolt releases.

* NOT compatible with 7.62x51 (.308 Winchester) firearms as well as most AR15 billet or polymer lower and upper receivers due to their larger and/or non-standard dimensions including the S&W Magpul Spec Series lowers and Savage MSR Recon or Patrol Models.

BAD Lever Specifications:

  • Compatible with standard mil-spec forged AR15/M16 receivers
  • Thin, anti-snag profile and textured surface still allows for traditional manipulation of the bolt catch while maintaining unobstructed access to the trigger
  • Attaches to the existing bolt catch paddle via one screw
  • Machined from durable billet 6061-T6 aluminum
  • Finished with MIL-A-8625F, Type III, Class 2 hard anodizing with manganese phosphate on the screw per MIL-DTL-16232G
  • Torx® mounting screw with Nyloc® Blue patch prevents back out under recoil (Torx wrench included)
