Strike Industries Enhanced Bolt Catch



If you’re interested in improving the operation of your AR-15, consider the Strike Industries Enhanced Bolt Catch.

The AR-15 bolt catch locks the bolt carrier group in the rear position when your magazine has been emptied. This AR bolt catch also allows you to release the bolt when you’ve reloaded and are ready to resume firing. Because of its function, it is important that the bolt release be sturdy and easy to manipulate.

The Enhanced AR-15 Bolt Catch by Strike Industries features a bold, ridged pattern to assist in providing positive finger engagement. The extra-wide lever surface allows for simpler finger operation and improved finger contact. This bolt release will fit snugly on all Mil-Spec AR-15 lower receivers. Made from solid steel, this release will give your AR a noticeable edge over the competition, while at the same time providing you with a sturdy mechanism to catch and release your bolt.

  • Looks great.

    Very high quality. Easy installation.

  • A simple Aesthetically Pleasing Upgrade

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2018

    Not really an upgrade for me as it is part of a custom build but it was easy to install, great looking, quality built and is a unique different look than MIL SPEC.

  • Nice, simple upgrade!

    Nice quality catch! I very much appreciate the increased surface area of the lower paddle. It enhances the catch without being gaudy.

  • SI bolt catch

    Posted by Gary on 2nd May 2018

    I watched a lot of youtube so if you take your time and be careful it can be a pretty easy installation. It made it easier for the bolt catch and release plus it looks good.

  • Strike Industries Bolt Catch, part #SI-EBC

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Mar 2018

    Product is a flat gray color and has no sharp edges. Perfect proportions, business-like appearance, pleasing to the eye. I installed it prior to setting my adjustable gas system, so it has held the bolt open on over 50 empty magazines. I would say that qualifies it as durable. If I were to nit-pik, I would prefer a finish that matches a standard upper (black). i will be installing these on my other ARs.

  • A simple but worthwhile upgrade

    Posted by Bob A on 24th Nov 2017

    This piece simply provides a somewhat larger bolt open contact compared to the USGI unit. It adds a degree of comfort without any bulkiness or obstruction. No question that it is a worthwhile upgrade. Highly recommended.

  • Better than USGI

    We bought two lowers that the mags fell out of when the bolt closed on the last round. We installed these one both, and no more mags hitting the floor.

    Our ARs have Strike Ind mag releases, bolt catches, and flat springs, from Wing Tactical.
    If these are not in your AR, then yours are lacking.

  • Great

    Enhance or quick manipulation

  • Extra little something

    Posted by Scott on 22nd May 2017

    I have one on my rifle and ordered 2 more for future builds.
