Strike Industries is now shipping the ambidextrous safety that we reported was coming soon at SHOT 2016. The Strike Switch is designed to allow the shooter to disengage and engage the safety with a solid firing grip thanks to the toggle style switch. Strike describes the action as intuitive, fast and ergonomic as you can see in the gif below.
The Strike Switch will be user configurable for either a 60 or 90 degree throw depending on your preference. They also allow you to choose ambidextrous selector levers or a right or left side only option by using the end cap that is included in the kit. Our friends over at Strike Industries have a history of releasing rather well thought out products, but the flexibility of this system is a step beyond their usual level of attention. As is with most Strike products the safety is made of high quality aluminum and anodized in one of four colors; black, grey, red or blue.
The Strike Switch is also designed to work well with many PDW style stocks on the market as a result of how low profile the levers are when the safety is engaged. As and added bonus, when the selector is in the fire position the PDW stock rails will engage the safety when the stock is collapsed.
The Strike Switch has a MSRP of $65.95 for the black version and $69.95 for grey, red and blue. If you would like to see more photos of the new selector you can check out Strike Industries’ web page here.
