The Forward Control Designs ABC/R-F (Augmented Bolt Catch/Release, Forged) is now shipping to dealers. This bolt catch/release is full of subtle design cues and angles that help the user use the release effectively. Not only are the upper and lower surfaces slightly enlarged over a standard catch, but they are angled slightly to provide better purchase and leverage. The visual differences are subtle but they can easily be felt.
The ABC/R-F is machined from a 17-7 stainless forging. It is available in a bare steel finish or black Melonite processed.
