There are a lot of small changes that can be made to a basic AR-15 to make it more ergonomically friendly. The simple change of a lever, release or button for one that is easier to reach or lies in a more convenient location can make your shooting experience completely different. When you want a bolt release that is more intuitive to operate, it’s time to consider the latest iteration of the Phase 5 Extended Bolt Release. The EBRV3 is the third revision of Phase 5’s popular AR-15 Extended Bolt Release. The Phase 5 Extended Bolt Release v3 is the best yet.

What Makes the EBRV3 Exceptional?

The Phase 5 Extended Bolt Release v3 is designed and manufactured as a single unit with no annoying plates or screws to mess around with or fail unexpectedly. This is a low-profile bolt catch, yet it features a larger finger tab so it’s easy to release by just reaching out with a fingertip. Grooved contact surfaces at the finger tab and elbow of the EBRV3 AR-15 Extended Bolt Release offer solid purchase for sure operation even in adverse weather conditions.

Phase 5 Never Stops Improving

Why in the world would anyone take the time to make three versions of something as insignificant as an AR-15 extended bolt release? Because they can make it better, and you deserve the best. Phase 5 continues the evolution of the AR-15 bolt catch by bringing the small arms community a drop-in replacement bolt release that is compatible with almost every upper out there. Phase 5 EBRs are a favorite upgrade control of tactical instructors worldwide. You don’t get that kind of love by stopping at “good enough.”

    Was a little unsure on purchase but after installing and using I am installing them on all my builds.

  • I Like It, Others Won't.

    I have used similar items for many years and appreciate the ease and control they provide. Everyone should have one. However, all of the others simply clamped onto the existingboltcach assembly and we're an easy install as there was no need to drive out and reinstall the roll pin as is the case with this completereplacement assembly. In my case, I am using Aero Precision M4E1 uppers and simply remove the threaded Allen screw thatreplaces the usual roll pin retainer. I like thismuchbetter thanthe "adapter" type but it will depend upon your willingness and ability to work with roll pins.

  • Works great

    This thing is better than any other Ext bolt release. And is a perfect match with a extended mag release.

  • Works great

    Best extended bolt release on the market and I've tried almost all of them. It's one solid piece so no risk of coming apart. Cut outs allow access to firing pins without removal.

  • Love this bolt release

    I have one on all my ar15 rifles/pistols. The magpul b.a.d. lever works very well but this Phase 5 is one solid piece it's the bolt catch/release with a lever so I don't have to worry about it coming off. I sometimes use the lever and sometimes use it like a stock rifle. Great product.
