There are a lot of small modifications that an operator can make to their standard AR-15 that makes it a more efficient weapon in the field. One of the simplest of these is to change out the standard, Mil-Spec magazine release button to an extended mag release button that allows for more intuitive operation in the field. The Armaspec Tactical Combat Button Extended Mag Release is one of the easiest upgrades you can make to your weapon system and possibly one of the biggest game changers for the operator who needs to make fast magazine changes.
The Armaspec Extended Mag Release comes complete and ready to apply to your standard AR without any real modifications. Simply remove the original button, apply Armaspec’s base and button and secure with the included set screws. It’s designed to fit both 5.56 and 7.62 receivers without the need for any permanent alterations to the receiver or additional parts.
When you install the Armaspec Extended Mag Release Button you get a 263% size increase over the standard Mil-Spec release button. You’ll find that the oversized mag release button allows for far faster magazine changes. You’ll no longer need to feel for a small button face, and the large size of Armaspec’s button will allow you to press the release without changing your grip. That makes for more comfortable, efficient field and competition operation and faster, more accurate performance. That’s a valuable thing, whether you’re career tactical operator or a competitive shooter.
