Forward Controls Design EMR-A Enhanced Magazine Release Ambidextrous - Dimpled


Standard for Nov. 2019, EMR-A, AA (dimpled lever) only

The LP (low profile) mag catch shaft option reduces the mag catch shaft length by a full revolution, or 0.03.  The LP option on the EMR-A (not available for serrated lever EMR-A till mid 2020) reduces the installed height of the right hand mag release button, resulting in a right side mag release button that sits below the mag release fence.  This is their latest step to mitigate accidental / unintended mag drop risks.

The LP on the EMR-A will not reduce the EMR-C's installed height on an AR15/M16 to the point where EMR-C doesn't constitute accidental / unintended mag drop risks.  The LP option's shorter mag catch shaft aims to reduce the installed height of a TDP spec mag release button (such as our EMR), it isn't a solution for extended mag releases, the installed height of which would require a drastically shorter shaft to offset.  EMR-C is meant for 7.62mm ARs, even though it works on an AR15 / M16, we suggest it be relegated to 7.62mm ARs and gaming ARs, not for defense and duty.

  • Hodge Defense Mod 2 Lower receivers
  • Battery assist device levers
  • Receivers with the left side fence around the bolt catch and mag catch, such as some CMT, and Magpul. EMR-A requires the left side of the receiver to more or less adhere to TDP specs.
