Rifle Safeties & Parts
Rifle Safety Selectors
You know what they say, safety comes first. After all, a firearm is only one of the deadliest tools humanity has invented. Rifle safety parts are crucial components for any firearm, ensuring it won’t shoot when it’s not supposed to. More often than not, safeties come preinstalled in a firearm and can be internal and external. However, if you assemble your own rifle, which is a regular case for AR owners, you’d need to take care of safety yourself. The safety selector, with an AR15 safety selector being the most popular option, serves a pivotal role in ensuring the safe operation of your rifle. It allows the user to switch between firing modes, locking the trigger mechanism when necessary. The AR safety selector comes in two variants. The standard version is meant for right-handers, whereas an ambi safety selector offers the flexibility of use for both left-handed and right-handed shooters. Even though AR is the most regular candidate for a safety selector, the AK 47 safety selector is also a popular option. Upgrading to an AR15 ambidextrous safety can significantly enhance the functionality and safety of your firearm, offering comfortable and quick access to the safety mechanism from either side of the rifle.

What is a safety selector on a rifle?
A safety selector is a key component of a rifle that allows the user to switch between different modes (ready-to-fire/ not-ready-to-fire) and to lock the trigger mechanism when necessary. It plays a crucial role in ensuring the safe operation of your firearm, regardless of what type of firearm it is.
What is the difference between a standard and an ambi safety selector?
A standard safety selector is designed for use primarily by right-handed shooters. An ambidextrous safety selector, on the other hand, is designed to be used by both left-handed and right-handed shooters. It offers quick and comfortable access to the safety mechanism from either side of the rifle.
Can I upgrade my AR 15 to an ambidextrous safety selector?
AR rifles are known for being highly customizable, so the answer is yes, you can upgrade your AR15 to an ambidextrous safety. You don't need to build a firearm in a particular way for it to be able to incorporate ambidextrous safety.
