Product fit, finish and function was good. Installation was straight forward and easy without incident. Product was in- stock and arrived in a timely manner. Shipping packaging was sufficient with no problems. Nice product and would recommend to others.

I bought this for my 6.5 creedmoor and it wouldn’t catch the bolt fully. So I installed it on my 300 blackout and I love it. If your build a AR 10/ .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor don’t buy this. AR 15 builds only!

Installed this item on my AR pistol and it went rather well. The original roll pin was a pain to remove because of its tight fit but replacing it with the supplied roll pin went really great. The aesthetics of bolt catch look great and it's function is perfect.

I used this on my Bushmaster AR-15 and it works great. I liked it so much I ordered one for my Armalite AR-10. Unfortunately, it does not catch the bolt on the AR-10, I had to reinstall the factory catch. The pivot point where the pin fastens the catch seems to be deeper in the lower on the AR-10, preventing it from getting a full range of motion like on the AR-15.

I Have purchased and installed several of these on my AR Platform rifles, they work great! Easy to hit the wide paddle design and release the Bolt. Never had any issues with any of them yet! Will definately buy more when needed!

Great bolt catch for anyone looking for larger surface area, however my lower receiver had some problems with the clearance with the larger lever. Ended up going with the smaller Strike Industries catch and both had the same quality, fit and finish. Matched the rest of my hardware so I was very happy with the end result.

Strike Industries really hit a homerun with this bolt catch it really works well hold back large levers easy to manipulate and it's really stylish would definitely recommend this bolt catch. You can't go wrong with strike industry products

The strike industries extended both catch release eliminates the need for find motor skills in a high stress situation. You only need to slap the side of the boat catch release with the palm of your hand and the bold goes forward every time. This products fit and finish was excellent. No sharp edges will birds. This is a very high-quality part. I recommend it to everyone

This is a must have if you need a more positive release of your bolt. You will not mistaken it once you've hit the bolt release. Great quality at a great price. It is hard to beat it for the fit, function and price.

Strike industries extended bolt catch is nice I really like the long bar on top makes it possible to use with the inside of your hand When I installed it is a little bit loose and kind of moves back-and-forth a little bit but it is not causing any problems but it does tilts h when I installed it is a little bit loose and kind of moves back-and-forth a little bit but it is not causing any problems but it does tilt some Seems to work good

For the longest time I’ve been using extended bolt catches such as the phase 5 or magpul ones that extend into the trigger guard. I’ve swapped them all out for these. I love them. The extended latch is right where your thumb will be when you insert a magazine. I highly recommend you try one.

I've been using the Magpul BAD lever and the Phase 5 BAD lever for some time. I decided to use this on a new pistol build and this thing is nice. When I slam a magazine into the magwel, it's right by my thumb. It's also large enough to palm slap. I like this more than any of the BAD levers I have installed.

well, as with my other SI components, this part was no exception...excellent. I like the fell and look of SI products. I've bought this and several other pieces recently for my latest AR15 build. I do like SI products, but this is the only build with overwhelming parts being SI. This is an excellent choice. Can't beat the quality for the price.

Like I said In the review title best option for the price point, definitely offers more surface area and provides positive traction when you are doing tactical reloads or running drills. It's every bit as good as the maritime bolt catch from geissele but at a price point that makes more sense. I like it and I run it on a couple of other weapons.

This is a very functional upgrade. I fired about 400 rounds / about 15 Mags after install. It is a very nice upgrade. Has a very positive feel. Great for speed reloads. The geissle maritime bolt catch goes back towards the stock this one is goes forward so it's much easier to hit. If you are wearing on a 2 point sling with chest rig/carrier..it could maybe possibly snag. Its not low profile. I have 2 of them

It doesn’t lock the bolt back with the magpul drum. And it seems to work better on M4 uppers. The spikes billet uppers I have are against the extended part unless the bolt is locked back. It works. It just rubs the paint off where it hits when you slap it shut. If you don’t have nothing but M4 uppers and don’t mind the bolt not locking back with that drum you’re good.

This is a simple but great improvement over the standard bolt catch. Besides simply being easier to release the bolt, it is makes it much easier to catch the bolt and hold it open. I've installed this on all my AR platform rifles,

I love Strike stuff, well made and reliable. I have purchased almost everything they sell for my ARs except the hex tube. Which is in the works.. good stuff. This bolt catch/release is awesome. Super easy to access with the large paddles. I am buying more for future builds.

cheaper than the geissele maritime bolt catch just like the title says...I installed it on a Wilson combat billet receiver set and it's actually one of the few parts that I didn't have to massage or take the dremel to, finish on the part is excellent and it adds to the aesthetic of the build as well as functioning the way it's supposed to.

The bolt catch itself is awesome and works flawlessly however they sent me an oversized pin and because of that I ended up scratching my lower up pretty good removing the pin to install the correct pin. Before you think I installed the wrong one I had the rest of the lower already built and was waiting on this to come in to install. It gets a 3 star review because of it. If they would’ve sent a standard size pin it would a 5/5 for me all day long. Once I removed the larger pin it was obvious that it was the incorrect size compared to others I have as spares.

Fast shipping and perfect condition. Fit on rifle with no problems, spacing was great with very little play. I will ordering from OP in the future. I would recommend this to anybody looking to upgrade rifle.
