Battle Arms Development is getting ready to roll out several improvements to their BAD-ASS-ST (short throw). The new version will feature compatibility with the Wilson Combat TTU triggers and a 50 degree throw instead of the previous 45 degree throw.
Roger from Battle Arms Development explains the reasoning behind the change to a 50 degree throw:
When the detent is engaged in the selector’s detent holes, there’s a minor play, you can rotate the lever back and forth for a few degrees. This play is unavoidable, for the detent to seat in the detent holes, the holes must be slightly larger than the detent itself.
On a 90 degree, standard throw selector, this movement is insignificant. On a 45 degree selector, 2 to 3 degree of movement between SAFE and FIRE is far more noticeable.
The Gen. 2 version of the BAD-ASS-ST will still have the same “lawyer pin” to prevent these from being installed in standard AR-15 lowers.
