You know, change for the sake of change is rarely a good thing. There has to be a reason, a purpose behind the change. Take stock of the areas in which your stock AR-15 falls short. Depending on the version you have, the problems may be few or many. One universal problem is the standard mag release button. There's an area that begs for improvement.
When you try to engage a factory mag release button, you have to admit that they can be difficult to find. In your shop or at the range, they're not that bad. However, when things get crazy, that button is a small target. On the other hand, a Velocity AR-15 VMR Mag Release makes it easy for you. This mag release is big enough to engage quickly. Although, not so much that it will snag on your gear.
The Velocity AR-15 VMR Mag Release sports an aggressive texture on its face. This texture allows for positive contact, even if you're wearing gloves. If you have to put up with a lower-quality mag release, you can count on two things. You will find them hard to use and maybe even cause accidental mag drops. Which at best, is embarrassing. Make a habit of it at the range, and it could make you the star of an impromptu YouTube video. A Velocity AR-15 VMR Mag Release is quick and easy to install. You could even do it on your kitchen table during lunch. It will speed up your time and effectiveness for mag swaps. You have to stop fumbling around and swap mags like a pro with Velocity.
