Strike Industries Enhanced Bolt Catch on AR-15


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

The bolt catch of your AR15 locks the bolt in the rear position when your magazine has been emptied. This 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 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.

    Easy to install, well made and a great price. All top notch products from SI.

  5. Good looking but could be machined better from SI 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2016

    This part is a good add for function and looks. It however will not fit all billet lowers and uppers. The roll pins weak and are in need of a higher quality roll pin. For the price and fit I like the looks and feel of these but without the proper tools for modification they may not work with billet lowers and uppers.

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2016

    This item went in easy and functions properly and looks good while doing it!

  9. Easy to engage bolt lock back 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2016

    I really like the enlarged pads on this bolt catch. It makes it a lot easier to hold the bolt open. Also easier to release. I shoot left handed and i don't have to move my hand around to set or release it. Just have to move my trigger finger. I put one on each of my ARs. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is one of the 2 had a small nub on it that I had to sand down so it would fit.

  10. Really dig the design 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2016

    This is a great shape and design for a bolt catch. I got mine and installed it and it works great. There was a thick line from the casting process down the left side of the one I received and I really wanted this to look like a high end build and looking at photos I think I just got an ugly one.

    I reached out to the manufacture to see if the part was MIM and this is the response: " The current EBC is investment cast from milspec 8620 and correctly carburized, quenched and tempered for proper surface hardness. It is the same material and process as used on the U.S. military's bolt catches, and the same used by companies such as ALG and BCM. The previous iteration of the EBC, which did have occasional brittleness issues, was MIM'd. That version has been out of production since early February. "

    They should include this info in the description as this is a really nice high quality upgrade!

    I did remove mine because of the line and installed a BAD mag catch and I honestly like the design of the SI better but that line made mine just look cheap.
