I was thinking about putting a Magpul BAD lever on one of my rifles with a LaRue stealth upper. Then I remembered that the stealth has slightly larger dimensions on the outside and a recess for the bolt catch paddle. Does anybody know if the BAD lever will work with the stealth?

Ok, so I went ahead and bought a bad lever and tried it on my LaRue Stealth upper. They don't work. The outside dimensions of the upper are just big enough that when retracting the bolt the BHO is activated just enough to hold the bolt back. Bummer.

You could give this a try. it should work, as it is about the same size as the regular paddle. I have one on my sun devil. Works pretty well and actually feels a bit more solid than my magpul BAD lever on my forged gun.

I used one on my Stealth upper and lower and it worked fine. The only problem was the bolt catch had side wobble which multiplied with the bad lever and I didn't like it.

I might have to pick one of those up, but $50 for a bolt catch! Ouch!
