  • Why did I wait so long to buy this?

    Posted by John on 31st Dec 2016

    I've seen all of the great reviews for the bad lever, but I was still skeptical. My hands aren't extremely big, but I do have long fingers and I was afraid that this lever would get in the way more than it would help. Boy was I wrong, it's placed nicely in the trigger well where my trigger finger could easily maneuver around it. Once you use this lever, you won't ever want to go back to locking/releasing the bolt the old way anymore. Love this lever!

  • It's the original and still the best!

    I think it's a cool mod, only down fall, it has a lot of play.

  • Must Have!

    A buddy of mine adds this to all his builds and recommended it. I added this to an existing stock rifle with some Strike Industries furniture and it's like a brand new rifle. Took it to the range and the first thing my brother noticed was the BAD lever and said this is amazing. Installs in less than 5 minutes , makes loading a new mag easier, no need to charge it just tap the lever while still mounted and you're good to go. Must have, will order for ALL builds.

  • awesome

  • Short Screw Stripped Threads

    Posted by Brian on 7th May 2015

    First impression of the product was good solid feeling construction, until I installed it. I installed it and locked the bolt back and used the BAD to release the bolt. I noticed it instantly came loose on the bolt release. Upon further inspection I determined the provided screw was not long enough to grab all the threads on the rear plate, and the threads had stripped. I then used vice grips to hold the two pieces together in an attempt to squeeze the plates together so the screw could grab the remaining threads, no luck, the screw was just not long enough.

    Using a Rock River Arms mil spec upper parts kit (bolt catch/release , dust cover and forward assist including roll pins, springs...etc) on a Tactical Machaining stripped upper.

  • vary usefull,
