The parts moved by the magazine follower to lock open the bolt are lighter in weight than a lever of conventional design. Lower inertia mass makes locking back on empty more reliable. And since the lever does not move during locking, it cannot drag on the receiver to slow the action and cause a failure to lock back the bolt. A strong and long 6/32 allen head cap screw gives a more secure attachment. The spring loaded bolt release lever is always nested out of the way at the top of the trigger space unless you're pushing it down to drop the bolt. Your trigger finger can rest on the magazine housing for safety and then come straight back to the trigger when ready to fire. Gloves are no problem. The lever only releases the bolt to go forward and does not lock it back. There is a large, easily found flat area on the lower clamp portion on the other side that makes it easy to lock back the bolt. Use either the left trigger finger if left handed, the left thumb if right handed, or the right thumb. Right handed or left handed, this will increase your speed and consistency clearing malfunctions and reloading from an empty magazine. You keep maximum weapon reliability and trigger access.
