ABC/R (Augmented Bolt Catch/Release) with its angled and larger top paddle and lower paddle with increased surface area, is purpose designed for use with AR15/M16 receivers equipped with ambidextrous magazine releases. Specifically, it is designed to address the difficulty with accessing the factory bolt catch's lower paddle with an ambidextrous magazine catch, such as Norgon's Ambi-Catch, on the receiver. Many of the ambidextrous mag release's lower paddle is on the same vertical plane as the factory bolt catch lower paddle, making identification difficult by feel, especially with a gloved hand.

The ABC/R's chief effort is focused on that single issue. The lower paddle protrudes further, and is angled at 10 degree to give it even more surface area. These measures put the lower paddle and Ambi-Catch's paddle on different vertical planes. That done, we worked on the top paddle. The ABC/R's top paddle is made larger, and given a 5 degree angle at the lower 50%, and 10 degree angle at the upper 50% cant. The angled paddle makes it easier for the palm or thumb to access.

The notch immediately above the ABC/R’s lower paddle is not there by accident. As you run your finger down the bolt catch towards the lower paddle, the notch is meant to provide tactile feedback to indicate the beginning of the lower paddle. It is important be able to differentiate one control surface from another, all without diverting one's gaze to it. The ABC/R version 2 consists of the following changes: 1) deletion of lightening cuts and 2) 10% thinner, and tapered upper paddle to better clear wide billet upper receivers. The ABC/R v2 is proudly designed and made in the US.
Roll pin not included.

Please note the ABC/R is not designed for use on 7.62mm receivers or 9mm receivers that use Colt 9mm magazines which require a Colt 9mm bolt catch

Great Product

This is by far the best designed bolt catch I've used on any of my builds. It fits perfectly and the overall finish of the product is first rate. The only complaint I have is that it is miss labeled, it does not have a POLISHED finish on it at all. (Unless they meant to say it is burr free?) The finish you see in the picture is the finish you get. I was able to get the polished finish on it by sanding it down with 1000 grit sandpaper and then polishing it with my dremel. It's a great product and I would definitely use it again.
