Enhanced Battery Assist Lever®

The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever significantly improves the speed and efficiency of reloads and clearing stoppages without switching hands, allowing you to maintain constant fire control. This device easily installs onto your existing standard mil-spec forged AR bolt release/catch (paddle) with no weapon disassembly or parts replacement, and allows you to lock the bolt back and release the bolt with just a slight movement of your trigger finger. The Battery Assist Lever was recently redesigned from the ground up with considerable improvements giving rise to the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever.

Faster reloadsLarger Bolt Release Button
The threat is still closing, the pressure increasing. Nothing is more important in the next two seconds than seating a new magazine and chambering another round. That is why we made the bolt release button of the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever 48% larger than the original to enable faster indexing and therefore faster reloads particularly important in the heat of battle.

Clear Stoppages EasierClear stoppages faster
You know you are not out of ammo but your weapon has stopped firing. Diagnostics indicates you have a situation that requires you to lock the bolt back to clear the stoppage. Simply lift up the Battery Assist Lever with your trigger finger while pulling back on the charging handle with your support hand (without the hassle of switching hands) and your bolt is locked open, whether you have thick arctic gloves on or not that is the beauty of the self-centering finger index groove.

Super tight, rock solid fitRock solid fit
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever easily installs onto your existing standard AR15/M16 mil-spec bolt release in seconds, with no weapon disassembly or parts replacement, and provides a super-tight rock-solid fit thanks to our exclusive Triple Screw Retention System. Unlike other devices, the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever is designed to avoid making contact with the upper receiver, and does not wobble and will not come loose even under the harshest of use.

Fits wide receiversLow drag contour
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever sports a low-drag receiver-hugging contour and rounded corners everywhere, making it snag-free and comfortable to use. With the original Battery Assist Lever, we learned that not all lower receivers are created equally. Some (i.e. billet receivers) are wider than others. That is why we designed the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever with a Wide Receiver Relief - to provide a better fit on more lower receivers. Compatible with standard / mil-spec dimensioned, right-handed, AR15 / M16 upper and lower receivers, including the HK 416, Sig 516, Sig M400; and also the Cross Machine & Tool billet upper and lower receivers. May not be compatible with the Odin Works XMR Gen1 Extended Mag Release. Not compatible with the following weapons: FNH SCAR, S&W MP15-22, S&W MP15 Magpul Edition, Ruger SR-762, Sig 716; and may not be compatible with some 7.62 / .308 models.

Easier to indexMaintain constant fire control
Unlike other devices that sit low and forward in the trigger well (requiring you to break your grip in order to reach it), the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever sits higher in the trigger well and more centered, making it easier to index (even for those with short fingers) allowing you to maintain constant fire control. The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever does not interfere with the trigger or the magazine release button. Furthermore, it is ambidextrous and is compatible with the Redi-Mag and the KNS Gen 2 (and Gen 2 Mod 2) Non-Rotating Trigger/Hammer Pins.

Ceramic coatingDurable Cerakote finish
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever is precision cast and then coated with an incredibly durable, non-reflective matte Cerakote finish. Available in a variety of colors (depending on inventory levels): Black, Magpul Flat Dark Earth (H-267), Magpul OD Green (H-232Q), Magpul Foliage Green (H-231), Patriort Brown (H-226Q), Burnt Bronze (H-148Q), Titanium (H-170Q), RAL8000 (H-8000Q), Zombie Green (H-168Q), USMC Red (H-167Q), and Pink (H-141Q).

Product Review from LooseRounds.com
Ever since the magpul BAD lever came out, I loved the concept. It is a great idea. The speed that you gain from manipulating the bolt and being able to lock it back to clear malfunctions or just for administrative was a great thing. But I hate the way
the magpul BAD lever is made. I know some of the more die hard magpul fans will scream for my blood, but the BAD lever is not well done... That has changed for me, but not with the BAD lever. I still see it as a sub par attempt at a great idea. I am talking about the Tactical Link Enhanced Battery Assist Lever... read more

Product Review from The Arms Guide
Sometimes it is difficult for me to make up my mind for what accessory I want on my AR-15 over another. However, making the decision on what ambidextrous bolt release lever I wanted to use on my AR-15 (and any future builds) was an easy one. Allow me to introduce the Tactical Link Enhanced Battery Assist Lever (EBAL, or as I like to say it; the ‘e-ball’). The Tactical Link EBAL comes in a variety of colors but the shade I purchased was black. Instead of being an oxide, phosphate or anodized coating, the EBAL is Cerakoted

This is the best battery assist lever on the market for sure! It is well-constructed and has no wiggle. Your finger doesn't have to go looking for it when it is needed. It also looks the part - sophisticated, sleek, awesome! Stop looking/thinking & BUY ONE NOW! You won't regret THIS purchase. Be sure to use Loctite yourself.

Best bolt on BA out there


I have a few different BA's on my AR's and this is by far the best "bolt on" on the market. The price is definitely right on Tactical Link BA.

Excellent addition!!!


This little guys works just as promised!! Installed easily, fits great, does not interfere with trigger operation or mag release and increases the ergonomics and functionality of the bolt catch by at least 100%!!! I would definitely recommend this accessory to anyone looking to upgrade their AR-15. Thanks Tactical Link.

Great product but will not work on all AR's


I ordered two of these for my S&W M&P 15 rifles. This is a great product but be aware that it does not function properly on all AR's. It worked great on the Sport model but does not work on the Magpul Spec Series due to the Finger Shelf for indexing the trigger finger that the lower receiver has. The shelf keeps the lever from allowing the bolt release to engage which is really too bad because I like the way it functions on the Sport model.

great lever, but not the first upgrade


The EBAL is a really great upgrade for the AR-15. I have two, and I plan to install them on any future ARs I build. However, the EBAL blocks access to certain parts on the left side of the receiver. If you're planning to install KNS pins, do that before installing the EBAL. Likewise, if you want to install a decorative magazine catch or change the magazine release button, those should also be done before installing the EBAL. The EBAL does not interfere with the magazine catch, but it does prevent the catch from rotating during removal/installation of the catch & button. For me, that means I have to remove the EBAL before I can remove this darned 'bullet button' from California and install a real magazine release button.

Great Product if you like speed.


I purchased this Battery Assist Lever for AR15 Colt LE 6920 it is very easy to install I was afraid it would have movement like other parts I have bought. But when mounted it is rock solid! I really like to control battery from trigger guard. Like all things one time at the range and practice it is now in my memory. Love it.
