    After seeing several you tube videos on this item, I was willing to give it a try...that said it makes reloading super fast and smooth. I never have to take my hand off the trigger, except to tap the lever to engage the bolt...very happy with my purchase. We highly recommend!! Get this you won't be disappointed!!

    A must-have mod

    Posted by John Francis on 4th Jan 2013

    A bought an LWRC rifle about 2 months ago, and the guy at the store had me try one of these and I was immediately sold. Just bought two more to fit to my other two AR-15's. Service from SKD was awesome, BTW.

    Great addition to any rifle

    Posted by SheepdogAmongUs on 31st Oct 2012

    Pros: does what it says it does and makes the AR15 manual of arms smoother. cons: somewhat difficult to mount (minor difficulty); takes up more space in the trigger guard, so user might have to learn to work around it; operator must be careful when closing bolt not to hit trigger Overall: buy it if you like the option of being able to lock bolt to the rear with your weapon hand still on fire control. Practice extra carefully if you use the BAD lever to send the bolt home (with weapon hand) instead of the normal support hand manipulation.

    Works Great, easy to install.

    Been putting off buying one for some time but know I'm glad I got it. Allows faster user operation of AR weapon platforms, allows quick clearing of a jam or a double feed. Great product, if you're going to get one, buy one from this company.
