Kinda hard to find out when I don't have a AR to look at ...

Anyways I'm just curious as to how it works.

Thanks!

The bolt catch has an internal tab that extends into the magazine well. The follower from an empty magazine extends upward enough to pivot that portion upward and act as a catch to the front face of the bolt carrier. Inserting a loaded magazine, pushing down the external button that acts as the otherside of the catch's pivot releases the bolt carrier and allows it to move forward under spring pressure and chamber a round.
