  • 1x V Seven S7 Bolt Catch


When addressing possible upgrades to your AR-15 the list can seem endless. Admittedly, some upgrades are made just because you want them, while others bring spartan usefulness to your weapon. While not flashy, the bolt catch comes into play with every magazine change. When you change to a V7 Ultra-light Bolt Catch every mag swap will go smoother, and you will get faster.

It’s Just A Little More

The paddle on a standard bolt catch is easy to miss when you’re in a hurry and those seconds trying to find it can add up. Your V Seven Ultra-light S7 Bolt Catch sports a larger paddle, therefore, even if you have big old paws you’re sure to find it on the first try. Whether your style is to sweep or slap, the diamond-textured surface of its paddle guarantees positive contact and release of your bolt carrier group back into action. Admittedly, this is a case where a little more happens to be just right.

It’s Built for Action

The V Seven Ultra-light S7 Bolt Catch is machined from very durable S7 tool steel and was designed to last a lifetime. There aren’t many upgrades you can make to your AR-15 and know that this is the last one I will ever have to buy for this weapon. Of course, it does look right, but looks come in second to function, and the V7 Ultra-Light Bolt Catch scores a win on both fronts. Whether you’re in a timed competition or a firefight shaving precious seconds off a mag swap can make the difference in a win or maybe your life.

  • V Seven Bolt Catch

    Posted by Greg Broderick on 5th Jan 2021

    A little disappointed that the texture does not feel as aggressive as it looks like in the photo. This same bolt catch in person looks aggressive too, but it almost has a 'smooth" feel to it. Quality is outstanding, and appearance is excellent. Note, this NP3 color differs from V Seven's Titanium color, so if you are attempting a perfect match be aware. I am happy with my purchase, but V Seven needs to step it up with the aggressive texture on this bolt catch (FYI, my V Seven mag release is much more aggressive feeling).

    I got the NP3 version and a KNS Precision bolt catch pin. Yes, it's slippery and amazing. Yes, it's tool steel and makes a different sound when you flick it. We've all seen videos of cast steel bolt catches breaking and I don't want that to be me. I bought this catch specifically to see how it would perform with a Sharp's NP3 Reliabolt and a Young Manufacturing Chrome bolt. The price seems paltry for a high grade part with a lifetime warranty. The diamond checkering on the release pad on the one I got is not nearly as aggressive as what's shown in the photos, so maybe there was a design change. This bolt catch along with V Seven's Easy Pull aluminum takedown pins are absolute bargains in high performance.

    Look great and works as intended. All my lower parts match now!
