    Magpul BAD Lever

    Each time you insert a new magazine into your AR15/M16 rifle, you need to slap the bolt release paddle with your support hand. For those who do not like this, Magpul has created the BAD (Battery Assist Device), Lever. With this level, you can use your trigger finger instead of your support hand to release the bolt. You need to try it out to see if this accessory is something for you, but many already swear it changes their whole reloading speed and weapon handling experience.

    Without permanently modifying your weapon the BAD Lever can be adjusted onto your bolt release of the AR15/M16. It is usable by both right and left-handed operators. The material it is made of its military-spec anodized aluminum, making it durable and robust.

    This little Lever has been designed for speed, and the Magpul Dynamics SM have used their extensive experience to offer the design idea. All the reload and malfunction clearance shortcomings of the AR15/M16 are addressed by this little Lever, so if you don't like the way these rifles typically work, then you should consider getting a BAD lever yourself.

    Features of the Magpul BAD Lever:

    • Compatible with mil-spec AR15/M16 receivers.
    • Unobstructed access to the trigger, anti-snag design, and additional manipulation ability.
    • With one screw attachment to the bolt catch paddle.
    • The special finish on the screw, using MIL-A-8625F, Type III, Class 2 hard anodizing with manganese phosphate, per MIL-DTL-16232G.
    • Torx mounting screw with Nyloc prevents back out after recoil (Torx wrench included).

    The Magpul bad lever is simply outstanding

    The Magpul bad lever install was easy. It decreased the reload time and it actually feels like it should have in the beginning. It tucks in front of the trigger and does not get in the way. It feels so natural right of the install. I got two so far and will be buying more for sure. One is on a 5.56 and the other is on my 50 Beowulf build. Recoil does not affect it. I just love it.

    I added this battery assist lever to my awesome AR and it works like a charm. I love that I can now slam a magazine into the mag well and immediately release the bolt with my trigger finger as I am aiming for the next shot! Speed kills baby!! PS...the screw doesn't strip if you start it out correctly, but I guess that is a little too difficult for some people...LOL!

    The Magpul battery assist device is a slippery slope, it's convenient, and it's slick. Once you're used to it being there, grab a rifle that doesn't have it and there you are.....you decide if that bumbling couple of seconds matters.

    Best battery assist lever

    This is an outstanding attachment to my US Army M-4. It saved countless times when reloading and clearing malfunctions when it mattered the most in Afganistan. The best part it is simple to install and does not require any permanent modifications to the weapon. I would recommend this to anyone who uses their AR for competitions or real-life offensive and defensive operations.

    You won't regret getting this

    The parts I buy are based on function and comfort. I don't rate products based on the "cool factor." Mine went on a Bushmaster and fit solid with no modifications. They made very well..... high-quality product. Out of all the extended bolt catches on the market, this is by far THE BEST design.....very well thought out and user friendly. If you want to get the fastest speed for mag changes and getting the bolt released, there are two must have products you need......this is one of them.

    Works as advertised

    Installs easily, dramatically improves the ergonomics of the AR-15. With this, you can lock the bolt back without taking your right hand off the grip. It also allows releasing the bolt without taking your left hand off the handguard. If Eugene Stoner were a smart as John Browning, the AR-15 would have come with these B.A.D. levers from the factory.

    I've used the Magpul Battery Actuating Device for a little over a year, and I have not had any issue with getting to my mag release or with a "wiggly" BOLT RELEASE (ping pong paddle? Really?) It's a great product. It's worth trying out.

    I put one of these fantastic pieces on every rifle that can have them. Even Marines and Army Nation Guard veterans can see the value and quickly learn to use this, sadly its Air Force vet that is struggling with it.

    The Good, the Magpul bad lever., the ugly

    5 out of 5
    Location:
    Date: January 19, 2020

    My initial impression of the Magpul bad lever was that this is a product solving a problem nobody has. Hitting the bolt release isn't very difficult, and while trigger the bolt catch isn't very convenient, it's never really been a problem. So why would anyone "need" the A BAD lever? KISS is the rule when it comes to firearms. Every time you add components to your firearm, you added cognitive load, a point of failure, retraining muscle memory, etc. The reason to have a consistent manual of the arm contributes to fewer mistakes at critical moments when your reptilian brain is in fight or flight. But after seeing some videos on YouTube, and quite frankly being bored, this being an easy add on, and equally easily removed part, $30 seemed like a low enough barrier to entry. And while I can imagine this hindering someone using their AR in high-stress situations, I just throw lead down range from a bench, so there wasn't a concern. The good. Easy to install and uninstall. Installation took a minute. Would have been quicker, but I fumbled with the tiny tool that came with the lever. Very simple. Concerns. That it might snag, when wearing a glove, or might actuate when transitioning from finger off the trigger to on, etc. None of this happened. After a few magazines of use, the lever performed incredibly well. The cons. Like every new technology that adds convenience, even incremental, it quickly becomes the new normal. I find myself fishing for this lever when I transition to my other ARs. The con is, I'll have to give more money to Magpul to install the lever on my other ARs. Although since I'm convinced the concept is right, I might like the look of Phase 5. I do think the B.A.D. design is optimized for easy install and removal, I like the more unified look of the Phase 5 (EBRv2) and might try that next. That's a different review. But for a low cost, high function, easy install, add on, the magpul b.a.d. lever is an excellent buy.

    This little ar15 battery assist lever transforms your clumsy AR bolt catch into an efficient and useful tool. No longer do you need to remove your steady hand from the pistol grip. Use your trigger finger to manipulate the bolt catch to either release or catch the bolt instead of your weak hand.

    AR15 BAD lever Made closing much easier!

    Unfortunately, I have arthritis. Consequently, it made it a little challenging to use the small side button used to close the bolt after changing magazines. Once I installed the Magpul B.A.D. Level, it became so much easier. Easy to install and easy to use!

    I've been teaching rifle marksmanship with Appleseed since Spring of 2010 - it's fundamental shooting - the stuff everyone else skips over. Mostly we shoot ARs. The Magpul BAD Lever is a real help in this way: when you identify your Natural Point Of Aim, you release the bolt, it chambers the round, take off your safety and fire. No disturbing your steady hold factors, no disturbing the rifle by reaching over your scope or releasing the bolt with your support hand.
