    "Best" Ambi Safety?

    Besides me not being able to find one in stock, I have a question has to who makes the "Best" Ambi Safety for the M-4/M-16 and civilain variations.

    I currently have a Rock River on a Carbine that has a great smooth positive feel. However, the worrier part of me doesn't like the set screw inside the reciever. Rock River Standard Trigger Group.

    My original "test mule" DMR has a DPMS ambi safety on it. Much rougher feel and not as positive as the Rock River. Rock River Match Trigger Group.

    Right now the only part I'm missing on my current DMR build is a Ambi Safety. Stag, BCM or Armalite all seem to be a option, or LMT. My concern with the LMT is the Rainier website describes them has being longer for billet recievers, vs. my Noveske lower, with Geissele SSA (Semi).

    I searched the old threads and didn't seem to get a best answer, just the whys and the availibles. I'm cross dom and shoot left handed. I operated the safety with the base knuckle of my firing hand for 20+ years of Infantry life. I now prefer a ambi safety. Thanks.

    I have only used the LMT ambi safeties, so I have nothing to compare them to, but I like them very much. The first one I got was included with a LMT lower, I never experimented further; I have them on all my carbines now.

    I have a Noveske with a Geissele SSA and LMT Ambi safety, and it fits perfectly.

    I am using 2 DPMS's, and just scored a Stag. Only place I could find one was Stag. They all seem about the same to me, they work, do what I what them to do. I don't know who makes them, whether inhouse or not.

    The one I bought years ago from Bushmaster was not to my liking, it worked, but the install required putting this tiny roll pin in, not pleasant.

    The RRA should hold up fine if you use blue loctite on the set screw.

    No screws to come loose.

    Hum, I hadn't seen those. It's a thought, but I think I'm going to stick with a ambi.

    I put a RRA Ambi-Star on my 1st AR (a RRA Entry Tactical - "fixed" thanks to this forum). I have now installed a couple more and like the positive feel of the action. At first I was concerned by the internal screw, but after a little Blue all has been fine.
