Hello! New to the forum & the AR from Nevada. Bought a Magpul BAD lever & tried to install but it won't fit on my DPMS! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

You might want to explain a bit more about how it doesn't fit.

Is it an AR10?

Nope AR15! I even tried taking the upper off & installing the lever & when I went to reassemble the rear pin needed some persuasion to go in. Got the pin in but the bolt would not budge. Got me stumped.

It just slips over the bolt release paddle.

There's not enough room between the paddle & the upper. It looks like the cutout in the upper is too small! I'll try to get some pics up.

I am going to assume you have the Lo-Pro style DPMS upper, with no forward assist or ejection port cover.

I understand these are a bit "beefier" than a standard upper, and there is not enough room to use anything else but the standard bolt catch.

If this is the case, I think you might be out of luck if you wanted to use the BAD lever.

Yep ! No FA or port cover!! Guess I'm returning the lever!
