I have a Armalite AR-10B (does not accept P-mags) and would like to put a ambi. bolt catch lever on it.  Will the Phase 5 tactical EBRv2/308 work?  Does anyone have another sugestion?

Yes, it will work.  It's about the only one that will work on a .308 AR.  Unless you custom-machined a .308 AR upper, the MagPul BAD lever won't work on them.  It's a clearance thing. 

By now, there might be a billet upper from a manufacturer that has a recess (in the upper) that would allow the BAD lever to work, but I haven't seen any of them yet.

Where can I get one of these?  The usual places don't show the 308 version.

Directly from Phase 5 Tactical, man.

E-mailed Phase 5 tactical to order one of these, and they replied that the EBRv2/308 won't work on the AR10.  Have you personal experience with these to know differently?

Only reason I would think that they would say that, is because of an inexperienced person on the phone (maybe?) that sees it listed for the DPMS LR308. 

 

Your concern with the MagPul BAD lever, and a .308 AR, is the recess in the upper, where the stock bolt catch goes.  The BAD lever won't clear that recess.  The EBRv2/308 does.  When you can put the Armalite bolt catch in the DPMS lower, as a strength upgrade, you can run that DPMS part in the AR-10 lower (for a strength decrease?).  Point is, the two parts swap. 

 

The EBRv2/308 will work on your AR-10.  If it doesn't, I'll buy it from you.  thumbup.gif

That's one hell of a guarantee.

It bolts onto the stock bolt catch, like the BAD Lever does, and it probably protrudes out the back, like the BAD.  I doubt it would work on the .308.  One way to find out, though - get the lower in, get the bolt catch in it, get that lever on, and put the upper to it and see.  I don't think it's gonna work, though, for the same reason the BAD doesn't clear.

Well 98Z5V, if the parts are interchangeable, I agree, it should work.  If it's anything like my experience with the BCM Gunfighter handle, it may require some gunsmithing.  I'll try one.  Thanks for the advice.  I'll let y'all know how it works out.

If it doesn't work, brother, let me know - I'll pick it up from you, and toss it on my DPMS.  thumbup.gif

Busted!  :mellow:

 

Shoot, if you pick it up and it doesn't work, I'll give you every penny you had to put out for it, man.  The only thing you'll be out of, at that time, will be the time.  thumbup.gif

That Ph5 v2 looks like it incorporates the bolt catch and lever as one piece. Armalite has modified their bolt catches to work with Gen2 mags,

am I viewing that pic wrong or is that v2 one piece, and if so will it work with the Armalite Gen2 Mag?

Im guessing no.
