B.A.D to the bone
by Justin -
Magpul quality, as expected. Is it necessary? No. Does it add the cool factor and shave off a tiny sliver of time from my reloads? yes. Its a simple design and easy to install. Primary Arms is second to NONE in shipping speed, pricing and customer service!
Worth every dollar
by Gordon -
Have the on 5 builds. Can’t live without it.
Its no Phase 5 but this works well with any AR Platform

Installed in minutes, a few mods needed if your release pin is loose, no big thing. Wont snag on my gloves, and the wife loves it on her pistol set up. for the $$ you cant complain really!
All my lowers...
by IntelMerc -
I've installed a B.A.D. lever on each of my 6 lowers.
<br>I spent over 20 years of service operating with the usual M4/M16 manual of arms and didn't know better. Once I discovered the Magpul B.A.D. Lever, I never looked back. Now when I see people switching hands to lock the BCG to the rear, it makes my bloody skin crawl.
<br>There is a better, faster way to work the bolt on an AR that doesn't require modifying the lower or buying a lower with an ambi bolt release/stop that you trigger finger still may not reach or have enough leverage to actuate the release/stop. You must commit to training a new manual of arms to get used to the B.A.D. lever.
<br>The AR bolt release/stop, even with the B.A.D. lever installed, STILL works just as it did when you went to recruit training. Stop crying and train more.
A must have

Great product. Took less than two minutes to install and works like a charm!
Easy 1 hand manipulations
by Matthew -
I had big problems with one of these when they first came out. Have purchased 2 since and they are outstanding. Love the ability for 1 handed manipulations. May not fit non standard bolt catches, but can still work just fine.
It Works LIke a Charm

A Part You Should Not Be Without!
by MICHAEL -
Another awesome part PA carries! This part fit perfectly on my S&W M&P15T. PA's pricing is hard to beat along with their very fast shipping!!!
Great product; incredibly fast shipping
by Mike -
Great little product. Incredible shipping time. Placed the order late on a Friday. Received it when I got home from work following Monday. Unbelievable.
Good product with great shipping
by Dartagnan -
Simple installation and very effective little bit of kit. Very nice to not have to move my firing hand to lock the bolt open or release the bolt. Combine that with PA super fast shipping and you can't go wrong.
by Ryan -
For under $30.00 this is one of the most effective user end "tacti-cool" add-ons. Reload time is slashed and bolt lock can be accomplished from the master grip. Its such a $4it simple but incredibly effective concept.
A must have on every AR
by Brock -
No down sides, faster reloads, easier gun manipulation. Only thing I have found is it won't work on some extra beefy upper recievers, I don't have one but I tried my lower on a heavy upper in 458 and it would hold the bolt open because if extra material.

Primary Arms Great Company You have to buy to see well worth it
MAGPUL B.A.D LEVER - BATTERY ASSIST DEVICE
by Bill -
Works great just not on my Yankee Hill Upper. Its a beefier upper than most. Other than that it works great and I recommend it for right hand shooters.
A Must Have!
This is probably the cheapest and most useful accessory for an AR! Didn't realize what I've been missing out on until last week when I ordered one and installed it. Makes locking the bolt open so much easier... No more reaching over in that awkward position to press the bolt catch! I'll definitely be ordering more of these when they come back in stock! And as always Primary Arms was very quick on shipping!
A necessary aftermarket addition.
Bought this for casual range shooting and plinking and couldn't imagine having a rifle without it. It's so simple yet does so much. I equate it to a backup camera on a car; you do fine without it until you get one and realize what you've been missing. Install took literally less than 90 seconds. Primary Arms had it shipped the same day and at my door step the next - total order turnaround was just over 24 hours. Amazing.
I put one of these on each of my rifles and I must say I was skeptical about the installation. After install they seem to be very sturdy and solid. I've only put a couple hundred rounds downrange so far but these seem to solve a couple issues with an easy fix. Also the sales price isn't so painful if you are buying a few. As far as I'm concerned these were a great buy and addition.
Pure solid magpul B.A.D. lever
I absolutely love this addition with the odin works mag release button and now the b.a.d. lever both right there at your fingertip. It's just awsome in speed. Some complain about wiggle mine is solid. Primary Arms customer service is awsome as awsome and there shipping is really fast. Thank you both once again Primary Arms and Magpul for making outstanding products......
I was dubious.....
PA had them on a give-away sale so I threw down on a couple of them. I was dubious if I would like them or want them however after installation my concerns are unfounded. Fit my Anderson and Cerro receivers flawlessly. My only concern is how to finance about another dozen of these for retrofitting my collection. 5 star product from a 5 star firm!
Perfect fit... Won't build a lower without it
This is my 3rd AR build and once you have it on the weapon it becomes second nature to have it there. It is convenient to use and the color matches pretty well on my Anderson lower.
Bought it even though I'm a lefty. Makes it very easy to release the bolt with my thumb.
Fast and easy. Very happyhappyhappy
Very Nice, Fair Price
Always wanted one, finally found one at a reasonable price on sale.Works great!
by Bradley Fisher
Works wellNo issues at all with it. Really shows off a sloppy pin if you have one though.
