Good Product

by -

Nice, solid product. Doesn’t come with the plunger, spring or roll pin. Still gets 5 stars because it’s my fault for assuming it would come with them. Would order again though.

Bolt Catch Not Holding

by -

My standard bolt catch on my Noreen lower would not hold the bolt back, but after installing the Battle Arms bolt catch the issue was resolved. Good product, shipped fast, no issues.

Good looking BC but...

by -

All as expected except if you hit the right light the steel "shows" through. Still very good looking and functions as should. I'd assume their billet model is the one that is truly black. I'm not upset just letting others know this bolt catch will look about the same color your standard safety selector is.

A little tight, just gotta work it a bit


Put this BC on a PSA Lower. At first thought it was garbage from how tight the fit was compared to my old. This thing would not budge once inside. I installed it anyway and after adding a little oil and working it back and forth for several minutes straight it worked itself in and now its super smooth and a good fit. Catches the bolt reliably.
