    MAGPUL B.A.D. Lever (MAG980 )

    Posted by Trusted customer on Mar 8th 2018

    I've played around with a bunch of bolt releases trying to find the perfect one for me. I know the B.A.D. Lever gets a lot of praise, so I decided to give it a try. It's not for me, but not without its merits.

    Disclaimer: This is from the perspective of someone who shoots "wrong"handed, aka, lefty.


    - Incredibly easy to install. Fits snug on my bolt catch.

    - Makes locking back your bolt easy as pie.

    - Enhanced bolt release surface area makes it easier for you to use your trigger finger to release the bolt.

    - Lever enables you to release the bolt with your thumb on your right hand if you prefer to operate the controls with your support hand.


    - Any wobble in your existing bolt release is amplified. My bolt release didn't feel like it had much wiggle, but once the B.A.D. Lever was installed, it felt like it was wiggling all over the place.

    - Can crowd controls. If you use an ambi bolt release, it can make it so you're mashing the B.A.D. Lever and other controls at the same time. I found my finger hitting the lever instead of the ambi release. It can also crowd the trigger, especially if you wear gloves.

    I can see why right handed shooters like these, but, as someone who shoots left handed, I think there are much better options out there.
