Ambidextrous bolt release. Who makes the best one, and what are some good ones under $50?
the troy one is good.it clamps to the existing milspec bolt catch. the phase 5 replaces the milspec catch.Not looking at magpul and was looking at the Troy Built first. Troy is on the top of my list right now.
$40 is a great price when you put it like that haha.if you are unable to replace a bolt catch then id go with the troy. otherwise its phase 5 all the way for me.
i own both. they both do the same thing except the phase 5 looks better IMO. it was a bit more pricey than the troy but a $40 part on a $2500 AR isnt so bad.
the thing with building ARs is that they dont cost much to get a reliable fully functional one. heck one of my budget builds was $360.$40 is a great price when you put it like that haha.
Never heard of this.the thing with building ARs is that they dont cost much to get a reliable fully functional one. heck one of my budget builds was $360.
you catch the disease...
the next build turns into a $2500 build super quick because of THIS:
"o well for only $20 more i could have this better part" then you get addicted...
...and its "o well for only $200 more i could have this bad@$$ b!txhin trigger group that will make me shoot faster"
oh boy, and then once youre off the deep end its "o well for $350 i could have this super necessary red dot sight but i cant just have a red dot i NEED $200 magnifier but shoot, the flip mount is only $70 more... might as well"
and so on....LOL
Take your pick, Brownells or Midway always have sales & markdowns on a wide variety of parts.I'm going with the phase 5 bolt release. I can't seem to find them in the local stores. Where is the best online store you have found to get them. Best meaning cheapest, cheapest shipping, promo codes for better cost? Thanks
I have a tactical link on one AR and a magpul on another. They both work fine, but I agree about the magpul "slop" in this case, and like my tactical link better. It was even cheaper. Don't know if they are still around. I hate the bolt catch roll pin, to be honest though.
