The PDQ™ is a trademarked and patented product that Performance Firearms offers with our lower receivers and rifles. This bolt lock and release feature is the best model we have tested and decided to exclusively incorporate them into our product line. We have tested many other models that enter and function thru the trigger guard area. We found they become cumbersome and can cause unwanted bolt releases when wearing gloves or in a crisis situation. The last thing you want to happen accidently while target shooting, in a crisis situation or hunting is to drop the bolt and chamber a round unexpectedly.
PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™
The PDQ Ambi-bolt release™ puts the operator in control of the firing grip at all times. The trigger finger moves from trigger to mag release to bolt release smoothly without moving the weapon from the shoulder. That is why it is call PDQ (pretty dam quick). When seconds count and your life and others are depending on you, count on PDQ™. The PDQ is made in AMERICA, uses Military grade steel, hardened and Mil Spec 8526 Class 3 type 2 coated to last a life time of operational conditions.
Reloading with PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™
When performing an emergency reload a shooter will typically use his left hand to insert a fresh magazine, press the bolt release, and return hand to shooting position. When using the new PDQ the shooter can now move from mag insertion directly back to shooting position. The trigger finger releases the bolt while the left hand returns to the shooting position.
Clearing a Double Feed with PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™
An advantage in firearm reloading, the PDQ™ advantage when clearing a round on the weapon is amazing. When a rifle malfunctions due to a double feed, the shooter will typically move the left hand to the bolt stop release and the right hand is now needed to activate the charging handle. This action is neither smooth nor quick. Using the PDQ™ will allow the shooter to clear most double feed jams without ever removing his hand from the shooting grip. This action is not only faster but also more familiar. Whether bench shooting, in a competition or fighting for your life, the PDQ adds speed and reliability to operation of the firearm.
