Phase 5 tactical makes an intergrated BAD-type lever / Bolt Release for .308 AR rifles

no they dont work on AR10 rifles only DPMS .308

The bad lever would work if you drill and tap the bolt catch, then screw it directly into the bolt catch. You just cant use the back piece there isent room. Its not quite long enough because the reciever is wider also. You'd need to add an extencion to the bad lever so it sticks out far enough to operate.

I'll probably make one myself.

DPMS reportedly uses mostly AR15 parts in their .308 lower receivers. The bolt catch being one of them. Armalites bolt catch is a little thicker i think. If so, the DPMS variant would fit on a Armalite but not vice versa.

Built my own. Inspired by Phase 5's, I fashioned from 1/8" steel and TIG welded to my bolt stop lever. Don't have fancy EDM or water jet machines so I just settled for drilled lightening holes.

I'd rather drill and tap or tig weld one on the bolt catch.

>>>> What the heck to you have jammed in the bolt assist?

It's a vinyl shipping cap from a piece of copper tubing that happened to fit. I converted this carbine from an A2 to an A4 and didn't have a fwd assist available at the time. The AR-10 really doesn't need one, so I haven't bothered to get one. I proly should fashion an aluminum plug for it but,....priorities! By the way, I tried to file the bolt latch and the file bounced off, so I don't think drilling & tapping is an option. It looks to be made by the MIM process and is very hard. It welds just fine though.

I emailed Phase5 a few months back. They said there is an AR-10 variant in the mix being tested. Unfortunately, they could not give a production date.
