Who is to say which component is the most important component of the AR-15? You could easily make the argument that it is the trigger, for without the trigger, how would you initiate the firing sequence. The same could be said about the hammer, because what good is a trigger if there is no falling hammer. The magazine catch is also a contender. Why? Well, how about we find out.

The AR-15 magazine catch, as are all of our house brand spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform, is a brand new part produced in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that holds several foreign military contracts. As such, all parts are compatible with and interchangeable in any MIL-SPEC AR-15.

The AR-15 magazine catch is a component of the magazine catch assembly, which also includes the magazine catch button and the magazine catch spring. Located within the lower receiver, and visible on its left side adjacent the magazine well, the magazine catch is a small but vital component that extends through the lower receiver into the magazine well, and is designed to lock and release a magazine from the magazine well. By depressing the magazine catch button, which results in horizontal movement of the magazine catch, any magazine locked in the magazine well should fall freely from the firearm. This is made possible by a small recess cut into the body of an AR-15 magazine, which serves as a point on which the magazine catch can "catch," effectively locking it into place. It is secured within the lower receiver by threading it onto the magazine catch button.

Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly – especially those components that make up the fire controls.
