Strike Industries: Ultimate 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.

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and runs an on-demand medical staffing business. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
