TRIGGER GUARD BOLT RELEASE

$ 24.95
Qty:

This is an extended bolt release lever allowing right handed shooters to release the bolt catch without having to reach over the top of the AR-15 to close the action. This design is a very simple "piggy-back" of a rugged light-weight Delrin lever that uses a longer bolt catch roll pin (included) as a pivot axle. The lever only contacts the top of the bolt catch, floats on the new roll pin and extends down towards the front of the trigger guard. The lever requires a definite motion to release the bolt (for safety purposes). Extended bolt release levers ARE allowed for Service Rifle Competitions, and great for Match rifles/Spaceguns. Especially if you have a side cocking upper!! Rapid fire strings are easier! Installation consists of driving out the existing bolt catch roll pin (to the rear) and, leaving the punch in place, driving the new roll pin with lever attached forward, stopping when pin just protrudes from the forward edge of attachment point. The pin is flared at the engraving end to retain the lever. Scotch Tape retains the pin in proper orientation for shipping and is to be removed only after installation.

*May not work with a milled receiver where the width of the receiver is wider than mil-spec.

Extended bolt release make life easy

Installation was fine, no problems. This really makes life easier, especially when shooting prone slow. You close the bolt while disturbing your position much less than normal. Handy during rapids as well.

Owner Response: Thank you for your question. We spoke by phone to help you on this. And, we've updated the description to include that it may not work with a milled receiver where the width of the receiver is wider than mil-spec.

Great bolt release for mid-range competition.

Purchased this item because I was having to reach over my carry handle all the time. More often than not, I would have to take the rifle out of my shoulder to do this because of how tight my bolt release was. After finding out that hammering out the existing pin was not as easy as I thought it would be, I spent some more money on some punches and a brass hammer. Took a lot of oil and tapping but I finally got the original pin out. Installing the bolt release was simple. One thing I would recommend is to take of the small amount of cellophane tape from the back of the lever where it is up against the receiver. I tried to take it all off after I had installed it but that piece stuck. It will wear out in time and fall off on it's own. It doesn't bother anything other than my OCD. Used it in a match a couple days after installation and I posted my highest score from the 600yrd line. Can't say if it was all due to this device but I can say that it worked perfectly and without any glitches. Allowed me to keep my position for added consistency. Highly recommend. Solid feel. Does exactly what it says it will do, no more, no less.

After adding a scope to my AR-15 rifle I saw the need for a better way to release the bolt after a magazine change. The trigger guard bolt release offered by Creedmoor looked to fit the bill. It was easy to install myself. I've had no issues with it since installation and shooting it in a couple of matches.
