Default Broke my AR Bolt Catch......which one should i get to replace it? thanks

Hi,

I guess anything can break. Was using this down time to clean and protect all my unmentionables and in the process of lubricating the rifle and testing it the little tab on the end of the Bolt Catch sheared off.

i've no recollection who made the part, It must be at least a decade old i would imagine.

Looking through Brownells, it seems as though there are a lot more options and companies that make such parts than i recall.

Any recommendations on which are preferred and/or which to stay away from.

It's for a 223/556 Mega Arms Ambi Lower.

thanks

I have several enhanced bolt catches, my favorite is the POF, I like it much more than the Geissele.

The POF is my favorite.

Keep in mind that many of the "enhanced" bolt catches may not fit non-standard receivers.
