Magpul B.A.D. Lever

Increase speed and operational capability by adding a Magpul B.A.D. Lever to your DDC Hard Charger equipped AR-15 rifle!!
By utilizing these two components together, you are able to be even faster and maintain even more positive control of your rifle at all times!!

Developed from the operational experience of the Magpul Dynamics team, the B.A.D. Lever (Battery Assist Device) is designed to considerably improve the speed and efficiency of the AR-15/M-16 bolt catch. The B.A.D. Lever quickly addresses reloading and malfunction clearance shortcomings of AR-15/M-16 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 AR-15 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.
