The Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector – Short Throw (BAD-ASS-ST) is now available for purchase. If you thought the original BAD-ASS was a game changer, wait until you see the shock wave that the BAD-ASS-ST sends through the industry. The “ST” in BAD-ASS-ST stands for short throw. This selector is designed to rotate only 45 degrees instead of the 90 degrees that most standard selectors rotate.
As cool as the short throw concept is, in the litigious society that we live in, it does create some liability issues for Battle Arms Development (read more in their Industry Forum). So, these will come with a pin that blocks the installation of the selector in a standard lower. Battle Arms Development can not recommend modifying the BAD-ASS-ST to work with standard lowers (there will be lowers made specifically for this selector).
I have one of these inbound for review so stay tuned.
