Magpul BAD Lever Battery Assist Device
The Magpul BAD™ (Battery Assist Device) is a screw-on addition for the standard AR15/M16 bolt catch. Designed to enhance the speed and efficiency of weapon reloads and malfunction clearance, the BAD™ enables manipulation of the bolt catch using the right-hand trigger finger without moving the shooter’s hand away from fire control/ready position.
Developed from the operational experience of the Magpul® Dynamics team, the B.A.D. Lever™ (Battery Assist Device) is designed to considerably improve the speed and efficiency of the AR15/M16 bolt catch. The B.A.D. Lever™ quickly addresses reloading and malfunction clearance shortcomings of AR15/M16 platforms by extending a paddle to the right side of the weapon, allowing manipulation of the bolt stop from the fire control/ready position with the right-hand trigger finger.
The BAD™ is optimized for use with milspec forged upper and lower receivers, but is also compatible with the HK 416, VLTOR VIS/MUR, LaRue Stealth, and many other billet upper and lower receivers. NOTE: The BAD™ is not compatible with the SR-25, AR-10, or other 7.62 caliber AR platforms.
