2 New BAD-ASS Levers from Battle Arms Development

Battle Arms Development is dropping 2 new levers today for their excellent BAD-ASS line of selectors. This will bring the total to 8 available lever options (9 if you count the end cap)!

The first lever is one that has been around for a while but hasn’t been as visible as the other levers. The Short Crank (shown above, bottom row, third from left) is a short version of their Crank lever. It resembles a manual car window crank. It works very well due to how the “knob” portion of the lever allows it to pivot under your thumb or index finger. If you like the old “starburst” selectors, and many people still do, then this is the lever for you.

The second new lever is called the Scalloped Lever (shown above, bottom row, second from left). Sharp minded readers may remember back to when it was called the Short Hybrid Lever during its development with Military Moron. Well, it is finally available and I have one in hand. It is probably my favorite lever for the trigger finger side of the BAD-ASS. It is short enough to stay out of the way, thin where it needs to be to minimize trigger finger interference, and wide enough to be easily manipulated. It is the ultimate compromise lever and I love it.

You can check out all the new levers at Battle Arms Development.

This is an early, pre-production rendering of the Scalloped Lever. The production version may exhibit some changes.

BAD-ASS-ST – New Short Throw Selector from Battle Arms Development

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.

End Cap for the Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector

Click to enlarge.

The previously reviewed Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector (BAD-ASS) is already the most versatile selector on the market. Now, with the addition of the new end cap, that versatility is expanded. I mentioned the end cap previously on Jerking the Trigger and now that I have one in hand, there are no surprises. It works.

Installation is a breeze. You simply bolt the end cap on to the BAD-ASS core. Be careful to align it so that the indicator notch is pointing to the correct selector position (safe or fire).

Once the end cap is installed correctly, it stays completely out of the way of the trigger finger and provides visual indication of the condition of your weapon (safe or fire). This cap makes the BAD-ASS relevant to those who may not have a need for an ambi selector but do want the quality, durability, and ergonomic enhancement of the finest selector available for the AR family of weapons. If you want a left side only lever, you can do that. If you want a right side only lever, you can do that, too. There is no shortage of options with the BAD-ASS.

You can purchase your own at the Battle Arms Development website. It is available for purchase separately or as part of a complete BAD-ASS kit.

New End Cap for the BAD-ASS

If you have been reading Jerking the Trigger recently you are already familiar with the Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector (or BAD-ASS). I say the BAD-ASS is the finest AR safety selector that I have ever used due to the versatility bred by its user configurable levers, its ergonomic enhancements, and its impeccable quality.

Well, Battle Arms Development just made the most versatile selector switch ever developed for the AR family of weapons even more versatile with the introduction of the new end cap. This end cap can be used to make either side of the BAD-ASS lever free. Now, with this end cap you can easily convert the BAD-ASS from ambidextrous to left or right side only.

The end cap has a notch that serves as a condition indicator (safe or fire). It is available separately for purchase or as part of a complete BAD-ASS kit.

If ambidextrous selectors just aren’t your thing, but you still want the performance and precision that the BAD-ASS offers, the new end cap is for you.
