    The finish on this piece is shiny. If that doesnt bother you it works nicely with a little more meat to slap.

  • As advertised

    Excellent product. Fits as expected and adds the extra purchase I want in my bolt catch/release.
    Will buy again for future builds.

    I've looked at basically all of the bolt catches.. yes some are better but you also are paying a lot more. This Battle arms for only 14 bucks is a no brainier to me. I wanted it before I even knew the price just for the looks of it. It's perfect in my opinion. I just installed it today and couldn't be happier. Would definitely buy again .

  • easy to install

  • Nice Upgrade for Your AR

    I have aftermarket bolt catches on all of my AR's as I like the larger top & bottom paddles. I bought this for my ASA side charging AR-15 upper. I was using a modified (filed down) mil-spec bolt catch to give the charging handle proper clearance. I had tried another aftermarket bolt catch that was shorter with winder paddles, but due to the milled lines of the upper, this one did not fit the space allotted for the bolt catch. I thought I would be stuck with my mil-spec one...until I found the B.A.D. enhanced bolt catch! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the B.A.D. bolt catch both fit in the allotted space on the upper and had the perfect clearance to allow the side charging handle cycle with no interference. This is a nice upgrade if you are looking for an enlarge bottom paddle & have a milled upper that only wants to accept a mil-spec bolt catch.
