Strike Industries: Ultimate Selector Switches

selector-switches

Have I mentioned that I am a fan of Strike Industries?  No, I’m not a shill for them.  I just genuinely like the company and many of their products.  In fact, I have actually replaced my long favored BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle with Strike’s AR Charging Handle with Extended Latch.

So now they have a new offering.  A highly customizable selector switch.

The AR-USS-90 lets you completely customize the way you run your AR! You now have the ability to run your AR selector in the standard or ambidextrous configuration for fast and easy operation. The precision machined safety bar is made out of heat-treated steel. The selector switches are made from impact-resistant nylon reinforced polymer. The kit comes with 10 interchangeable polymer switches ranging from long to short switches, with many different profiles.This gives you endless possibilities on how you can set up and run your AR. Mounting hardware is included.

The only problem I can see is that there are no duplicates in the kit if you want to run an ambidextrous safety with the same switches. But otherwise I can’t wait to get my hands on a set.

    I like the look of them. Call me paranoid though, I’m not sure I like them being polymer. It would probably take a lot to break it, but it’s a piece I wouldn’t want it to happen on such an important piece. I generally like Strike Industries products though.

      I’d think it would take a hell of a hit to bust it. But if I get some in, I’ll do a drop test with the longer ones (which IMO would be the most likely to break).

        Either the blog entry was edited after I commented or I’m completely blind. The hammer video was awesome. Thanks. Please tell me I didn’t pass over it in my rush to see the price in the link.

      Sounds like pre-MagPul heresy to me!

    Let’s hope they move smoothly. It’s something I never even thought about, until I got a selector that was rough.
    I bought a $20 short-throw selector from Damage Industries, and was disappointed by the feel compared to the Noveske/Magpul STS. Trimming the spring helped some, but it’s still not smooth.

      I’ll know more once I get my hands on some. In my experience with Strike products thus far, the machining (and quality) has been excellent. I can usually trash gear pretty quickly, and the polymer stuff I have used from Strike is holding up well.

    Got a receiver sling end plate and a spring kit from Strike. Very satisfied with the products and shipping. I love the fact that I can do at least four different sling configs with one end plate. Glad to see them coming out with new products and ideas. The AR market needs more innovation.
