Details:

If you're looking for a sturdy bolt release for your AR15 or M16, Forward Controls Design has you covered. 

The Augmented Bolt Catch / Release (ABC/R) is specifically designed to operate with ambidextrous magazine releases. Factory-installed bolt releases tend to interfere with the ambi magazine release feature with a hard-to-access lower paddle. The levers on most ambidextrous mag releases are on the same plane as the lower paddle of the bolt catch, making it difficult to identify the paddles by feel. The difficulty is exacerbated with gloved hands. 

To avoid this problem, the lower paddle on this release is designed to extend further than most of the ambi mag releases on the market today. The ABC/R-F by Forward Controls Design also features a 10-degree angle to give it an increased surface area. 

The top paddle for this catch has been made slightly larger with a five-degree angle to make it easier for the user to access with the thumb or palm. A notch integrated into the lower paddle of the catch provides a useful reference point for you to locate the paddle without the need to look at it. To avoid undue strain and stress on the spring, the weight of this bolt release has been kept close to that of the Mil-Spec catch. 

All components of an AR15/M16 firearm should be of the highest possible quality to ensure that they last as long as possible. This Forward Controls Design Augmented Bolt Catch / Release is made from 8620 alloy steel, then black oxide coated to resist corrosion and wear. 

Forward Controls Design Augmented Bolt Catch / Release (ABC/R) Comes in: Dimpled and Serrated designs.

    This bolt catch /release is built very well. I highly doubt this would ever break. Unlike my SI bolt catch that snapped in half.

    I bought this for my light weight AR build, and thing this looks and feels great. It fits perfect, has a very good texture for an easy operation, and the quality on this is amazing.
    Pricey yes, but looks and works excellent.
