Extended Bolt Release V3 (EBRv3)

The Phase 5™ EBRv3 RED, BLUE, MG, FDE and ODGreen finishes are CERAKOTE, which does not match anodized components. (see supporting images below)

*May contain slight defects where hung for paint. Cerakote may wear at contact points.

The Extended Bolt Release Version 3 is compatible with all mil spec AR-15/M16 receiver sets as well as many billet, side charging, and even left-handed weapons.

The EBRv3 lets you reload quicker, clear jams more efficiently, and reduce unnecessary hand movements by extending the lever into the trigger well for access on the right side of the weapon.

Like it’s predecessors, this is a one-piece replacement part for the mil spec bolt catch found in all AR-15/M16 lower parts kits and is a great upgrade for both right and left-handed shooters. The Phase 5 Extended Bolt Releases are depended on and trusted by tactical trainers and LE officers worldwide.


  • Heat treated, 8620 steel, same as a mil spec bolt catch.
  • Secure patented monolithic design, direct replacement component, no screws to come loose.
  • Low profile bolt catch, fits many aftermarket billet upper receivers and most side charging upper receivers.
  • Grip serrations added to elbow and end of Extended Bolt Release lever.
  • Improved magazine follower catch.
  • Larger index finger tab for bolt release.

Compatibility: The EBRv3 is compatible with nearly all AR-15/M16 platform rifles and pistols that use a standard Mil-Spec bolt catch. This includes many side-charging upper receivers, and billet receivers that cannot accept a bolt-on Extended Bolt Release. Not compatible with any rifles that use a proprietary or non-standard bolt catch.
