The function of most rifle parts is important, but the ergonomics of the various button, levers, and pins on many rifles can be a sticking point for many shooters. To put it simply, if you can’t reach it comfortably, you can’t operate it quickly. While many manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to alter the angle of charging handles or the size of their takedown pins, all of those alterations make little sense if you can’t drop a magazine and reload your weapon quickly, without having to hesitate while you’re looking for the magazine release button. 2A Armament has taken up the gauntlet and now offers the 2A Magazine Catch Assembly, a quality manufactured AR Mag Release assembly ready to drop into your favorite rifle.

The 2A Magazine Catch Assembly is compatible with AR-15 and AR-10 platforms. The mag release button and magazine catch are machined from quality American aluminum stock and finished with a black, hard anodized coating that won’t chip or peel no matter how many times you use the magazine release to swap out magazines in the field or in competition. The center pin of the 2A is sturdy stainless steel so you don’t have to wonder about reliability, use after use. The 2A AR Mag Release Assembly ships complete with a release spring, center pin, mag catch and your choice of magazine button. Depending on what’s comfortable to you, you can choose a release button with a full grooved face, or a pocketed model that still features grooved edges for positive purchase in less than stellar conditions, and an open pocket that many will find more comfortable to settle the curve of a digit into.

Whichever package you choose, the 2A Mag Catch Assembly will serve you for years to come and you can feel good knowing you’re supporting American Craftsmen and the future of small arms manufacturing.

    This is my favorite magazine release by far the texture on the magazine button really grabs your finger and also fits really well in the rifle, The magazine catch has a smooth feel to it and the fit and finish is excellent, Highly recommended.

    I bought the mag catch with the pocketed button. Honestly I wanted the other style but it was out of stock. As it turned out I’m really glad I got the pocketed one. The button sort of tapers from front to back and gives a very good feel to the button. Also the catch bar is aluminum and and milled in a very aesthetic way. It just looks good. I wish it was offered in FDE. Great service as always from Wing tactical.

    Very satisfied with the quality of the mag release. The tolerances didn't stack well on one of the lowers I had but it went into another lower with ease. It happens. This is the second one of these I've purchased. I've abused the first one I had and found that it's held up nicely. I'll buy one of these again.
