FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will the BF-10™ work with a left-handed AR?
No. But we have found that since you are using your right hand to reload with the BF-10™, you actually have an advantage using a normal AR.
Will the BF-10™ work with (insert non-AR15 rifle name here)?
No. The BF-10™ is designed to work with AR-15's chambered in .223/5.56 with a forged Mil-Spec upper receiver. If you are not sure if your upper is compatible, send us an email and we'll let you know.
Why does the BF-10™ cost more than a magazine?
The BF-10™ is not a magazine, and does something a magazine cannot do. The BF-10™ is competitively priced, and considering what it does, a very fair price.
Does the BF-10™ work with 300 blackout?
Does the BF-10™ work with 7.62 x 39mm, 6.5 Creedmoor, 450 bushmaster, 308 win, 224 valkyrie, 6.8 spc, or anything else that we don't advertise?
No. If it is not .223, 5.56, or 300 blackout, it will not work. I promise you. Seriously. It will not work. .223, 5.56, or 300 blackout, .223, 5.56, or 300 blackout, .223, 5.56, or 300 blackout, .223, 5.56, or 300 blackout
How do you clear a malfunction?
This will depend on what magazine locking device you choose to make your rifle compliant. See the manufacturer of that device for an answer to that question.
Will it fit in a magazine pouch?
The BF-10™ will fit in most standard magazine pouches, we recommend the Taco from HSGI.
Why didn't you make it (insert completely different function or design characteristic here)?
Will the BF-10™ work with (insert magazine name here)?
Yes. We designed the BF-10™ to work with any standard magazine (gi, magpul, lancer, etc). We have had issues with HexMags, and do not recommend them for use with the BF-10™. Some customers have had success, but others have not, we believe this is due to inconsistencies in manufacturing from batch to batch. We highly recommend Lancers, as the steel lips and smooth movement of the followers make the BF-10™ require less force to load.
Will it work if my AR is painted (insert color here)?
How do you load the BF-10™?
We have several videos detailing the process of loading the BF-10™. Basically, you push the follower to the top (feeding end) of the BF-10™, and insert rounds one at a time. There is much less tension in the BF-10™ than a magazine, and loading rounds is very easy and intuitive.
Does the BF-10™ automatically chamber a round when removed from the rifle?
No, we believe that this would have been an unsafe and legally irresponsible feature. The force of the bolt carrier group pushing on the BF-10™ would put excess wear on the material, causing decreased longevity, and plastic chunks to get in the action of the rifle, chamber, and fire control group. When the user has completed the magazine load, he/she simply pulls it out of the ejection port the same way it was inserted, then moves the fire control hand back to the pistol grip, and makes the decision when to chamber a round/begin firing again.
Do you have a mailing list where we can get more info?
Yes, please subscribe to our mailing list on the main page of our website. We send occasional updates.
Why don't these Californian gun owners just leave the state?
We don't believe in solving problems by running away from them.
Can you use it without thumbs?
Will it work on an AR pistol?
Yes, as long as the upper is mil-spec. This is really the best option for AR pistol owners, because you cannot go "featureless" with a pistol.
Can I sell the BF-10™ in my store?
Yes, go to the DEALER PORTAL and follow the instructions to become an Authorized Dealer. We have competitive pricing and low minimums to take care of every small gun shop that we can.
