The LIGHTNING Bolt-Release



The Smith Tactics “Lightning” bolt-release, is a revolutionary new product in the AR-15 market. Designed from a factory milspec bolt-release, the “Lighting” bolt-release (LBR) will remove precious time from your reloads by automatically releasing the bolt into battery upon inserting a fresh magazine.

The LBR:

  • Installs in minutes, using a hammer and punch into any milspec receiver set
  • Automatically release your bolt into battery upon insertion of a fresh magazine, unless manually over-ridden
  • Will not release the bolt or otherwise change your rifle’s condition upon inserting an empty magazine
  • Will not prevent the bolt locking back into place upon firing last round in magazine
  • Has been successfully tested with nearly every available magazine on the market from surplus GI to Lancer L5AWM
