Developed from the operational experience of the Magpul DynamicsSM 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.
Made from milspec-anodized aluminum the B.A.D. Lever attaches to the standard AR15/M16 bolt release without permanent modification to the weapon. Functional for both left and right-handed shooters the B.A.D. Lever also allows traditional bolt catch manipulation according to the AR15/M16 manual of arms. All mounting hardware included. Made in U.S.A.
Compatible with standard mil-spec forged AR15/M16 receivers* Thin anti-snag profile and textured surface still allows for traditional manipulation of the bolt catch while maintaining unobstructed access to the trigger asy attachment to the existing bolt catch paddle via one screw Machined from durable billet 6061-T6 aluminum Finished with MIL-A-8625F Type III Class 2 hard anodizing with manganese phosphate on the screw per MIL-DTL-16232G Torx® mounting screw with Nyloc® Blue patch prevents back out under recoil (Torx wrench included)
I absolutely love these things. I didn't know at first when I ordered it if I would or not because of being close to the trigger but no problems even wearing shooting gloves. Once you get get use to it you can unload and load fast. Recommend everyday!!!
A great addition to my AR-15. It I not necessary to have this MagPul AR15/M16 B.A.D Battery Lever on the rifle, but makes it more fun to shoot. When I first put it on the rifle it felt awkward and appeared loose fitting. After one trip to the range I adjusted to it presents and recommend it’s use.
If you don't want to move your finger to far from your trigger this is for you. There's a bit of play/wobble in it since it bolts onto the bolt release lever itself but for me it functions really well and I can overlook a little bit of play. I'm sure when it comes down to it... a little wobble will be the last thing on your mind.

The lever is exactly what I needed. Fast delivery.
Works as advertised. Really a slick little device that make opening and closing your AR chamber a two handed job instead of "3". You know what i mean if you have an AR. Attaching to your gun can literally take no more than 2 minutes.
I bought this as a present for a good friend, highly decorated Marine & retired Cop. I have BAD levers on my personal ARs as well. He was skeptical at first but soon praised the speed and ease of getting the rifle back in battery! I recommend these to all my friends that own AR rifles & pistols!
Wondered about it and got it and now love the thing!
VERY good price on what to me now almost a required device. Love keeping my movements to a minimum when returning to battery....great item, super fast delivery and a really GREAT price. Couldnt be happier
