Upgrade with UTG

The UTG AR Lower Upgrade Kit improves the manipulation of four commonly replaced lower receiver components that often leave a lot to be desired, the trigger guard, bolt catch, safety selector, and magazine release. Although these stock components certainly get the job done, the UTG upgrades in the kit (also sold separately) provide an ambidextrous magazine release and safety selector in addition to an oversized bolt catch and trigger guard. The magazine release features enlarged contact areas for less error-prone mag changes and malfunction clearing. The enlarged pad on the right-hand side is removable, revealing a standard sized magazine release button. Users can further tailor things down to their needs with the safety selector, which features a 45/90 degree stem and comes with a reversible short and long selector. Both components are primarily of steel construction, sans the aluminum enlarged magazine release pad and selectors. 

The steel oversized bolt catch features a contact area that is enlarged, serrated, and has a forward offset for smoother and faster manipulation after inserting a magazine. The lower portion of the bolt catch is raised higher than standard height to provide similar benefits when locking the bolt back to the rear when clearing malfunctions such as a double feed. Rounding out the kit is the aluminum oversized trigger guard which simply, but effectively, provides additional room within the trigger guard for larger hands and or gloved-use. The trigger guard uses and includes a steel lower receiver roll pin and threaded hex screw for installation.
