About this product+

Upgrade your firearm with the Magpul B.A.D. Lever Battery Assist Device for AR-15 M4. Available In: Cerakote Burnt Bronze.

Fits: AR-15 & M4 Platforms.

Please Note: The B.A.D. is not compatible with the SR-25, AR-10, or other 7.62 caliber AR platforms.

MAGPUL B.A.D. (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 B.A.D. 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 B.A.D. 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.

Features Included:
  • Fits standard mil-spec forged AR15/M16 lower receivers.
  • Thin, anti-snag profile and textured surface still allows for traditional manipulation of the bolt catch while maintaining unobstructed access to the trigger.
  • Easy attachment to the existing bolt catch paddle via one screw.
  • MIL-A-8625F, Type III, Class 2 hard anodizing with manganese phosphate on the screw per MIL-DTL-16232G.
  • Machined from durable billet 6061-T6-T6 aluminum with mil-spec finishing.
  • Torx wrench included.
  • Torx mounting screw with Nyloc blue patch prevents back out under recoil.
  • Made In The USA.
Magpul was founded in 1999 with the intent of developing a simple device to aid in the manipulation of rifle magazines while reloading under stress. The company's name comes from this original product called the Magpul. Over the last seventeen years, Magpul has continued to grow and develop using much the same mission and process with a focus on innovation, simplicity, and efficiency.

    Magpul BAD Lever

    For a new frontier left side charging handle having one is a must have.I also have a foxtrot Mike lower thats for a .45acp so of course it didn't fit mine right. I seen somewhere that said it was loose when they put it on their AR. Although it didn't fit mine right I do think it would fit most ARs correctly. I knew it wasn't going to fit mine out the gate. I just modified it by triming a little bit off with a Dremel tool and looks great. The way I did it you can't even tell I'm 90% sure the structural integrity of it is good.To me it was definitely worth the risk and just time on the range will tell me soon enough. I love it. The only thing with mine is that I should have made my modification a little different and I now see that after I'm done but if anyone has any questions about how I did I wouldn't mind telling them how I done it and what I would do different if I did it over if anyone has the same set up as mine. Love it, don't know if I could go without

    Looks Good, But fit it not tight, lever wiggles

    For the price of this item I expected a precision fit, the color is spot on, but there is play in the fit, therefore the lever wiggles. I attached it to a factory, milspec bolt release and was expecting a tight fit, it functions and it looks good, but it has an annoying front to back wiggle, this is my first Bad Lever so I have no other point of reference, but I don't think that is normal.
