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.
