AR-15 Bolt Release Lever
This AR-15 Extended Bolt Release Lever allows right-handed shooters to release the bolt catch without having to reach over the top of the receiver.
Design & Operation
The design is a very simple "piggy-back" of a rugged light-weight Delrin® lever, with a longer bolt catch roll pin (included) as a pivot axle. The lever only contacts the top of the bolt catch, floats on the new roll pin and extends down towards the front of the trigger guard. The lever requires a definite motion to release the bolt (for safety purposes) but can be released with just a press of your trigger finger.
Extended bolt release levers are NOT allowed for Service Rifle Competitions, but great for Match rifles/Spaceguns ... especially if you have a side cocking upper!! Rapid fire strings are easier!
Installation is easy and does not require a gunsmith. Just drive out the existing bolt catch roll pin (to the rear), leaving the punch in place. Drive the new roll pin (with lever attached) forward, stopping when pin just protrudes from the forward edge of attachment point. The pin is flared at the engraving end to retain the lever.
♦ If you don't already have the special flat-sided punch needed to remove the roll pin, we now stock one! Just click here!

♦ The AR-15 Extended Bolt Release Lever works great in conjunction with the "Original Bob Sled" AR-15 Single Shot Loading Device.
