The AR-15 may be a great design, but there is still room for improvement in some areas. One example is the bolt release; it requires that you move your entire hand to press it - a rather inefficient maneuver. If you would like to speed up reloads and jam clearing, you need the Extended Bolt Release V1 (EBRV1) from Phase 5 Tactical.

This piece consists of a lever that screws onto the existing AR-15 bolt catch / release. It extends into the trigger guard, so all you have to do to release or lock back your bolt is push the lever with your trigger finger - no more having to use your whole hand just to actuate the bolt release!

The Phase 5 Tactical Extended Bolt Release lever is made of heat-treated steel, so you can be sure it will hold up to constant use and abuse.

    Peice bolted on very easily, works great once secured. Only negative feedback is the included screw wore down the first time I screwed it on and had to be replaced. Other than the screw price works perfectly.

    Overall a rock solid add-on. But the flat head #1 Phillips screws are NOT hardened. When final tightening, 2 of the 3 heads stripped. Maybe no biggee... the blue threadlocker should hold everything tight. The finished installation works nicely.
