Why is it so hard to find the B.A.D. lever and mag release in one place? I don't want to pay shipping from two different sources. (I'm cheap) Both seem to be as rare as hen's teeth to start with. Did Magpul stop production on them?

The B.A.D. lever is quite common and most of the major players have it. Brownell's, Midway USA and Primary Arms all had it in stock when I checked.

What mag release are you talking about? The Magpul Enhanced mag release?

I thought Magpul only made one mag release. Are there more? They only show one online. The problem is finding BOTH at one location. I wouldn't exactly call three "major players" as being common and none that I checked had both, including Magpul themselves.

I used to be a fan of the B.A.D. lever until I bought and installed a Phase 5 Tacical bolt release. I'll never buy anohter B.A.D. again.

Anyway, back to the main point. Keep checking around, Magpul stuff is everywhere.

I have the advantage of living near a large Military base, I can walk into almost any local gun store and grab everything I need same day if I don't want to wait on shipping. My shop always has the BAD available, never looked for the mag release. I did try an odin extended mag release, what a waste. It works but wasn't necessary for me so now I find that it looks tacky, I have it on my DD right now but plan on putting it on my Sport.

I like my sport but it's the lowest level AR I have and has become the spot where the parts I don't care for end up going.

Someone just leaked about a new Magpul mag release today. They are releasing a lot of new accessories this week and next from what I read. Might have reallocated manufacturing resources lately.
