Strike Industries AR15 Ambi Magazine Release


Have you ever noticed the gunplay in action movies? How the actors move seamlessly from target to target, with fluid mag swaps. Well, the stuff you see in the movies is accomplished through editing. In real life, you get there with practice and the right equipment. The factory AR-15 mag release doesn't lend itself to flawless mag swaps. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to get there.

Why the Strike Industries Ambi Mag Release

Practice alone will only get you so far. A quick upgrade to a Strike Industries AR15 Ambi Mag Release will help you make that practice count. Of course, for a left-handed shooter, the ambi feature is a must. However, an effective operator knows that sometimes you have to improvise. Maybe you're hurt. Sometimes in real life, targets don't present themselves at the perfect angle. You may have to shoot around a barrier from your weak side. It makes sense to practice until you can flow through a mag swap without looking, like an action hero.

Appearances do make a difference.

The Strike Industries AR15 Ambi Mag Release is ergonomically designed with your hand in mind. While it presents an overall low profile, the mag release is easy to engage. The mag release is designed to be a direct drop-in replacement for any mil-spec receiver. Even if you never use the ambi function, this upgrade is worth it for its appearance alone. There is no getting around the all business, no play look of an AR-15. They're supposed to look tough. However, when you see the Strike Industries AR15 Ambi Mag Release on the side of your weapon, you will have to admit. Looks do matter.

    First time purchasing something from wing tactical. And I gotta say, shit was legit.

  • Great

    People need to learn how to install parts (unless spec is off). I run this on several ARs with no issues. Works great and is NOT "stiff".

    I am a lefty and my son is right-handed. This is my favorite ambi mag release and it is easy to install. It looks and works great.

  • Good Lever

    Posted by GJ on 23rd Dec 2019

    Really nice lever, well built and feels sturdy. This does NOT work with the F-1 BDRx lower as some of the machining on the lower is in the way of the 'ambi' portion of this mag release. I'd advise you check your lower if it's not 'mil-spec' to see if you have the clearance needed to have the 'ambi' portion of the lever have 100% of it's travel. Other than that, great level and I don't expect any issues from it.

  • Really nice looking, not so good functionally

    Posted by Jose Alonso on 17th Oct 2019

    Tried this ambi mag release on three different lowers, and with three different brand mags, unfortunately, it did not functions as it should. The strong side button was difficult enough to impress to drop a mag without making extra effort, and seconds count.

  • Does what I want it to do

    Mine doesn’t work! It won’t lock the magazine in and reset after the magazine is inserted.
