There are a lot of small changes that can be made to a basic AR-15 to make it more ergonomically friendly. The simple change of a lever, release or button for one that is easier to reach or lies in a more convenient location can make your shooting experience completely different. When you want a bolt release that is more intuitive to operate, it’s time to consider the latest iteration of the Phase 5 Extended Bolt Release. The EBRV3 is the third revision of Phase 5’s popular AR-15 Extended Bolt Release. The Phase 5 Extended Bolt Release v3 is the best yet.

What Makes the EBRV3 Exceptional?

The Phase 5 Extended Bolt Release v3 is designed and manufactured as a single unit with no annoying plates or screws to mess around with or fail unexpectedly. This is a low-profile bolt catch, yet it features a larger finger tab so it’s easy to release by just reaching out with a fingertip. Grooved contact surfaces at the finger tab and elbow of the EBRV3 AR-15 Extended Bolt Release offer solid purchase for sure operation even in adverse weather conditions.

Phase 5 Never Stops Improving

Why in the world would anyone take the time to make three versions of something as insignificant as an AR-15 extended bolt release? Because they can make it better, and you deserve the best. Phase 5 continues the evolution of the AR-15 bolt catch by bringing the small arms community a drop-in replacement bolt release that is compatible with almost every upper out there. Phase 5 EBRs are a favorite upgrade control of tactical instructors worldwide. You don’t get that kind of love by stopping at “good enough.”

  • Badass Product

    Posted by John on 26th Mar 2021

    I bought Phase5 V3 for three of my Bravo Company Manufacturing (BCM)weapon system. It replaced one of my Troy Industries Extended Bolt Release (EBR). Phase 5 is one solid piece and far less wiggle room. Although, it replaced my Troy EBR, Troy industries appear a bit more streamlined than Magpul EBRs. I ended up reusing my Troy EBR on a Palmetto State Armory (PSA) AR pistol build. Important Note: I did found a way to decrease the wiggle of the Troy by wrapping the bolt release paddle with black electrical tape and then trimming off the edges. I also placed electical tape to fill the space on both sides of the paddle. By wrapping it makes a gusset type seal that tightens and fills in the lose space inside the Troy EBR. Be advised its gonna be a little hard to put the screws in after doing this, because of less dead space i side. Be sure to tightened down both screws w/ blue locktight. After some meticulous taping and trimming work, now the Troy EBR is just a solid (97% less wiggle) similar to the Phase 5 EBR. The price comparison for both is approximately $20 more for the Phase 5 V3. I do recommend both product options because it does make rapid reloading drills several seconds faster than without an EBR. Well worth the investment.

    It is worth spending the extra couple bucks to have a quality part. This one piece product wont wiggle as much as the attachable ambi bolt releases

    I've been using the particular type of Bolt Release Lever on all my Ar15 and Ar10 rifles with no malfunctions. Other types caused the bolt from not locking open after the last shot.
