TOPIC: Installing the Magpul B.A.D. Lever
First make sure rifle is unloaded and remove receiver from the lower.
Place the lever over the bolt catch
Place backing plate behind the bolt catch
Install and tighten screw with provided Torx wrench.
You can now engage and disengage the bolt catch with your trigger finger for rapid operation of the bolt catch. (Note that this lever only works on standard AR15s. Not designed to work on a .308 platform)
Also, we are planning on adding a dealer locator to our website in the near future.

I recently purchased the Windham Weaponry MPC model AR 15 from Cabela’s and wanted to thank you for giving part of the proceeds to the Wounded Warriors Outdoor Recreation Program and for etching the American flag on the side of the gun.
I did quite a bit of research before I bought this particular gun and based on the reviews it appears to be a very high quality firearm. However, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to support an organization that supports our troops and obviously loves America.
I look forward to shooting my new gun for the first time this week with my daughter. Thank you again for caring about those who sacrificed so much for our freedoms.
I just wanted you to know. my 308 SRC is the greatest gun I have owned since my grandfather’s M1 Garand. I LOVE THE GUN!!!!!!! HOLY MACKEREL, AN AR IN 308. AND MADE HERE IN THE GREAT STATE OF MAINE!!!!!!!!!!!! I have an old A2 rifle (Bushmaster) that you made in 223. Great gun also. Great quality in both weapons.
YOU GUYS AND GALS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to thank Henk Iverson and James Sanchez for coming by the booth, and for taking the time to work with WW in the future.
