Product Description

FCD’s EMR-HC is a mag release with a taller profile than the factory mag release and it increases the usable surface. The surface area is increased area by using a gentle curve on its top surface. The form-fitting curve, along with all-angle dimples, creates a self-centering surface that inhibits the finger’s vertical movements. It is taller profile makes it easier to press and is only 0.04 taller than the factory magazine release button. When installed, the EMR-C has a 0.08 protrusion above the mag release button fence on most forged receivers.

  • 0.04″ taller than the factory magazine release button.
  • Very effective all-angle dimples.
  • Made from 4140 steel.
  • QPQ coated.

Notes from Manufacturer:

Due to the EMR-C’s installed height which protrudes 0.08″ over the mag release fence when installed (only 0.06″ or 0.07″ of the magazine release button travel is needed to drop a magazine), EMR-C is recommended for 7.62mm ARs only, though it does work on 5.56mm ARs and M16s. For defense and duty ARs and M16s, please use our EMR that has only a 0.01″ protrusion over most forged receiver magazine release fence.

For .308 ARs, the EMR-C’s taller profile will allow you to use AR15/M16 spec mag catch and ambidextrous mag catch/release. An EMR-C installed on a .308 AR will not protrude over the mag release fence.

FCD EMR-HC Enhanced Mag Release Button - Blind Hole, Dimpled

Really like the contour for finger placement. Purchased with optional 30% stronger spring.

Duck Dimples

My rifle wasn’t “Gucci” enough so social media told me I need more 🦆 in my build. Look at me now!

PS Milspec Retail is my fave

Aesthetics and Improved feel -Dimpled

Started adding FCD parts to my lowers and thought I would give these a try too. We were not disappointed, the fit and finish of their mag release button is just like all other FCD parts we have installed, Simple, Solid, Increase in Functionality, and Elegant. Then you add Milspec Retails quick delivery, it's a no brainer...
