View Full Version : LPK with the best selector feel

06-20-2012, 4:23 PM
Just so happened I have almost always use DPMS LPK. and their safety selector feel is very inconsistent. some are good, some mushy and don't give a positive click, and i got one that are just loose like its held in place by the detent pin. I have used spike, Noveske, Mega lowers.
I guess what I'm looking for is a smooth rotating with some effort and a positive click that swing it in to place.

This has more to do with the actual selector and detent than anything else.

Oops, for a second I thought you were asking which lower receivers had the best selector fitment.

Stag is nice. Good triggers too.

I like the feel of the selector that comes in PSA LPK's, very crisp on and off.
Also its cosmetically a little different then standard selectors (extended).

The selector that came in my Daniel Defense LPK had a very good action solid lockup and smooth.

IMO the best selectors on the market bar none are the Battle Arms Development ambi selectors BAD-***/
CASS. The selector unit alone will cost as much as an entire LPK but their product is top notch along with their customer service. Completely worth the cost (to me).

Im using the BAD-CASS 45 degree short throw selector and its amazing.

BTW looks like PSA sells their selector separately now too

If your going to change out you selector consider an ambi from Stag Arms. Very smooth and precise.

Daniel Defense or Spike's

I had a really bad Rock River selector once, that thing felt like a cement mixer sounds

I've used Stag, Rock River, Pametto State, Bushmaster, and JP Enterprises LPKs, and the selector that came with the JP kit has the smoothest movement and most positive click out of all of them. I bought both of my JP kits from RifleGear.

I have two lowers with DD LPKs but I switched out the selectors for ambis from CMMG. One of the lowers has a positive and snappy selector the other had a mushy and lethargic feel/movement.

After some research I read that Battle Arms uses KNS stainless steel detents for their kits, so I ordered a couple and switched out the one in the mushy selector. I also cleaned/buffed out the chanel of the suspect selector with my Dremel using the nylon bristle brush attachment for about 20 seconds. Now its perfect and feels positive just like the other one. The process took about 5 minutes.

Here's a link for the KNS SS Safety Detent (http://shop.battlearmsdevelopment.com/KNS-Precision-SS-SAFETY-DETENT-for-AR15-M16-FREE-SHIPPING-SAFETYDET.htm), they're only $2.50 with free shipping.
