Works brilliantly with the Redi-Catch to achieve unparalleled efficiency in opening and closing the bolt.
LIGHTER WEIGHT FOR GREATER RELIABILITY
The parts moved by the magazine follower to lock open the bolt are lighter in weight than a lever of conventional design. Lower inertia mass makes locking back on empty more reliable. And since the lever does not move during locking, it cannot drag on the receiver to slow the action and cause a failure to lock back the bolt.
MORE SECURELY CLAMPED TO THE BOLT CATCH
A strong and long 6/32 allen head cap screw gives a more secure attachment. This screw uses the same wrench as our Redi-Mag.
MORE ROOM FOR YOUR TRIGGER FINGER & SUPERB FOR LEFT HANDERS
The spring loaded bolt release lever is always nested out of the way at the top of the trigger space unless you’re pushing it down to drop the bolt. Your trigger finger can rest on the magazine housing for safety and then come straight back to the trigger when ready to fire. Gloves are no problem.
There is a large, easily found flat area on the lower clamp portion that makes it easy to lock back the bolt with your left trigger finger. See the pictures with the Norgon ambidextrous magazine catch. Then, after inserting the fresh magazine with your right hand, use your right thumb to depress the closing lever. ( If you’re right handed, you can use the Redi-Catch which locks back the bolt by pushing the magazine catch.)
Right handed or left handed, this will increase your speed and consistency clearing malfunctions and reloading from an empty magazine. You keep maximum weapon reliability and trigger access. CNC machined from 6061 aluminum alloy.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Will the BCL fit all AR15 type uppers and lowers? A. It is designed to fit ONLY standard FORGED AR15 uppers and lowers. It will NOT work with anti walk or anti-rotation trigger and hammer pins. It will NOT fit non-standard bolt catches.
Q. Does the BCL lock back the bolt? A. The BCL is pivoted so that it will take less space inside the trigger guard, therefore the lever itself only releases the bolt. However, the Redi-Catch will lock back the bolt.
Q. How does inertia mass affect reliable operation? A. Inertia is resistance to movement. The heavier the bolt catch is, the slower it will move when activated by the magazine follower. If it moves too slowly, it may miss the bolt and not lock it back.
Q. How does the pivoted lever reduce inertia? A. The pivot is on approximately the same axis as the bolt catch. Therefore the BCL does not move when the bolt catch is activated by the empty magazine. Only the top portion of the unit moves, and it is lighter weight than other one piece lever type devices.
Q. Why have one device for opening and one for closing? A. This set up is the only one that leaves the most space in the trigger guard and keeps the lever out of the way until ready to release the bolt.
Q. Does the BCL work with ambidextrous magazine releases? A. Yes, but currently only the Norgon and Troy. When paired with either, it makes an excellent system for left handers. The bolt can easily be locked back with the left trigger finger and closed with the right thumb.
