Default Magpul b.a.d.

Worth getting?

Www.gearhog.com has a $50 for $25 deal at uscav.com where I was going to pick up more pmags.

Saw this and thought it might be a good addition.

Thoughts?

In my opinion you'll be hard pressed to spend a better $30 on anything else except for ammo. Aids greatly in not only reloads, but clearing malfunctions as well. It makes clearing double feeds so much easier since your strong hand never has to leave the firing position.

I think my BAD lever is cool. I have one gripe/question is prolly more about my lower. The bolt release has a little lateral play in it which is amplified by the "lever" part of BAD. Can I fix it with a new roll pin or something?

I didn't know there was anyother way lol. I've never seen a lower that didn't have play in the bolt release.

My colt doesn't seem to have much play... but then again, I don't have a lever on there.

I also recommend it Highly for the malfunction clearing alone, it also makes the paddle area a bit larger so if you're military and you've trained for the side slap it just makes the target bigger, also good for LEOs who do stress fires, Anything bigger and easier to manipulate is always better when your brain goes into fight or flight mode.
