After fitting the U15 stock on my lower I quickly discovered that my thumb was not long enough to engage the saftey lever on the left of the receiver. Does anyone know of a saftey lever angled correcly for the right side of the the receiver? After fidgiting with it, it would appear that appropriately positioning it would allow operation of the saftey with the right index finger.
Leftys can get by with the traditional one. Any help is appreciated.

I'm experimenting with some different solutions for the safety and sling. I will be sure to post as soon as possible.

I have the same issue with my U15. Looking at various extended safety versions..

This one looks good.

Nevermind. Realized I really didn't add anything.

The price is a bit steep on that one, and I don't think the selector lever is long enough for what we are looking for.

Grant any suggestions? Not a huge issue yet, but could be "Tactic Kool" setup..

I use the Stag ambi safety and it makes the U15 much more functional. I'm right hanged and I start with my thumb on the right side, switch the safety to FIRE and then wrap my thumb around the rear of the stock.

Incorporating an auxiliary safety switch into the rear takedown pin might be a viable option though. A rigid rod connecting it to the real switch would work.

Could you use your trigger finger to flip the ambi safety forward?

The JP Custom safety is dead sexy and has adjustment to remove all trigger play when on safe. It can be reversed for left or right side use, or you can buy two paddles (as I've done) and use it ambi.

I will warn you, it does NOT work properly with the RRA-2 Stage trigger unless you modify the cam. The reason for this is it was designed for a single stage trigger. They knew the dimensions common to these types of triggers and thus made part of the cam thicker which reduces the overtravel of the trigger. Unfortunately because of how RRA made their trigger the back part of the trigger is rather fat/thick and thus you cannot pull the trigger enough to drop the hammer. You can machine off a bit of the back of the RRA trigger or part of the cam and then you're golden. I had the cam machined down...

This is a gun with single stage...the RRA is on another gun with the same safety.
