Bolt catch issue

I recently came in to possession of a LAR OPS 6.5 side charging AR upper. When I got home and put it on my lower I found one issue with it, there isnít a cut out for the both catch to fit into. As a result the bolt catch rubs on the bottom of the bolt to the point it will not let the bolt move more than about half an inch.

My search on the internet mostly came up with modified bolt catchs to be compliant with CA or NY laws. However, I did come across one suggestion of cutting off the paddle part of the bolt catch. Iím just wondering if anyone has any other suggestions to try.

The interesting thing is my OPS-4 doesnít have the same issue.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Googled this - LAR OPS 6.5 side charging AR upper- produced this:

http://www.omegamanufacturinginc.com...rs_p_3566.html


Specs:

Left Charging LAR upper with Feed Ramps
WMD Nickel Boron Bolt Carrier
Prime Weaponry Assembled Phosphate Bolt
NOTE - Handle for bolt may vary, could be knurled or smooth poly

This upper receiver is not cut to accept a bolt catch. We will include a cut bolt catch so this upper will work with any lower. If you already have a lower assembled, you can easily break off the top part of the bolt catch to make this one of a kind upper work with your lower.

Yeah thatís all I could find, just seeing if anyone had any other ideas. Thanks for the input.
