THE CATCH22 V2

The Catch22 V2 slides over a standard .223 bolt catch for easy installation. Use this for non-dedicated .22lr builds where you'll be frequently swapping calibers and still need a functional bolt catch.

FAQ

What is the difference between the V1 and V2 Catch22s?

The V1 bolt catch works best for dedicated .22lr ARs as it's a direct replacement for a stock bolt catch.
The V2 bolt catch can slip-on over a .223 bolt catch which is a faster installation and better for ARs that frequently change calibers.

Why would I need an adapter/shim to use S&W 15-22 magazines?
S&W 15-22 magazines are skinnier than a standard AR magazine. Without something to take up the slack in the magwell, the magazine will have too much slop and not work consistently.

What is the advantage of the clip-on vs the stick-on S&W 15-22 magazine adapters?
With the clip-on adapters, you only need one clip regardless of how many magazines you have. The downside can be if you have non 15-22 magazines then you'll need to remove the clip before using them. If you have a number of different types of magazines, then the stick-ons are the better way to go. The shim will be adhered to the magazine so you don't need to change anything when swapping between types of magazines.

How does the catch work differently than the CMMG/BlackDog style magazines for last-round-hold-open?
Magazines that use the follower to hold the bolt open will let the bolt drop when the magazine is removed. The Catch22 uses the bolt catch to hold the bolt open which functions like a .223 bolt catch.

What do I need to have the same last-round-hold-open function as a standard .223 AR?
- Catch22 (V1 or V2)
- S&W 15-22 magazines
- A clip-on or stick-on magazine adapter

What happens if I just use a Catch22 (V1 or 2) with CMMG magazines?
With this combination, the bolt will be held open after the last round by the magazine follower. To keep the bolt open after the magazine is removed, you'll have to manually engage the bolt catch.

BOLT AND UPPER COMPATIBILITY

The Catch22 was designed around Ceiner style bolts. Because of this, .22Ir bolts that aren't based on that design

Testimonials

I installed the Catch 22 on my .22 AR this morning. I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your product. It works perfectly with my CMMG dedicated BCG. I previously tried a competitors product and found it to be unreliable. Not the Catch 22. It works reliably every time. Thanks for a great product and great customer service.

I wanted to tell you your solution works 100%! I previously tried the Better-Mag, and that system, while in theory, should work, it didn't because it was either too tightly fitting, didn't close properly, and the bolt catch got frozen. I suppose it may be the result of an over-complicated system. Yours is simple, and works. Love it!

I tried a competitors adapter (slides into a lower) that was supposed to be the end all answer for a properly functioning LRBHO. It was nowhere close to working and a huge disappointment after all the reading I did to figure out what to order. Your Catch22 worked like a charm though! I now have an awesome (yet tame) training tool for the love of my life to learn with. And I really appreciate that you helped make that happen.

I just wanted to let you know that I installed the Catch22 on my wife's Bushmaster C22 and it works perfectly! The competitor product I tried, the BetterMag, didn't work nearly as well as the Catch22 on my CMMG upper, and the Bushmaster wouldn't even close with the BetterMag installed. Thanks again for the awesome product!

I wanted to follow-up.  I took the rifle to the action area at our local range. A friend and I had a ton of fun shooting it.  Probably in the neighborhood of 700-800 rounds for the day. A few misfires, but the AR catch was flawless with the Palmetto State Upper. Thanks Again!

Hey Guys, just wanted to let you know I ran 350 rounds through my Spikes Tactical AR this weekend without fault with my Catch22 - brilliant product!

After finally getting some range time I have some news about the S&W clip on adapter combined with the catch 22 and my Bushmaster 22 LR, AR-15.
Wow, being already happy with the catch, this removable magazine shim in tandem makes this AR function awesome and as intended with a normal operating BCG catch and hold open, not to mention I can use any designed magazine I own for this round, but my favorite being the S&W magazines that provide a full open bolt once emptied.I have 200 rounds through using the catch and shim and has worked flawlessly, very happy with both products and will leave this set up on for good.

Got my order today. Took all of 5 minutes to have it catch installed. The catch and M&P15-22 adapter both work like a charm with my Palmetto State lower and Core-15 dedicated .22 upper.

Thanks for coming up with a great solution for AR-22 builds! The Catch-22 works as advertised... even with Black Dog Gen II mags.. just pull the charging handle back a bit and lock it with the bolt catch before dropping the mag.. Easy to learn and to do without thinking about it after a few mag drops.
