I was needing an Ambi safety for my featureless AR build and came across this one. This was a budget build rifle so the price was perfect for what I was doing. It installed easily and has a nice positive feel. It is different then the one pictures as one lever is smaller then the other, this is fine as a featureless grip only allows you to use one side. I installed it with the large lever on the right side under my thumb. The action of it is very solid but not difficult to operate. If you are working on a budget get this safety.

Took a whole five minutes to install (don't forget blue loctite on the screw). Works perfectly. Why pay $50 or more to get an ambidextrous selector switch when an item under $20 fits the bill? Looks factory so it does not stand out like a sore thumb. Highly recommended!

Anderson is always a good value for the money. This ambi safety selector is just what the doctor ordered for a featureless build (for those of us in non-free states). This is at least half the price if not less than similar products. I'd definitely recommend it.

Anderson always has had a good reputation and this selector is no exception. Easy to install and looks and works flawlessly. Even if you are not a lefty, it is very convenient to be able to use finger or thumb to operate. Finish is nice

Like most products by Anderson this is of good quality.Fits well easy to install and the retaining screw is flush with the surface.The detent locks positively and moves from position nice with an audible click when the detent locks in.

This ambi-safety is well made, fits perfectly and functions as well as much more expensive ones !!! I installed 4 of these for a right hand shooter, to do quick on/off safety perfectly !!

In preparation for upcoming CA laws banning the "bullet button," I opted to make a featureless rifle out of my Sport 2 AR-15 rather than install a mag lock requiring me to detach the upper receiver to simply reload the rifle. With the removal of my pistol grip and installation of my Hammerhead (non-pistol) grip, however, all of the fingers on my right hand are now restricted to the right side of my rifle. That's where this part comes in handy. I no longer have to reach all the way around the rifle to engage the safety, all I need now is a flick of my thumb. That means there's one less step to put the gun in "safe" mode, meaning it's much simpler and much safer. I would of course recommend this product to any others building a featureless AR-15, or even people who share or rent their ARs and need to account for both left and right-handed shooters. My one complaint is as follows: the item took over a month from the time my order was placed to when it was actually delivered. I believe that OpticsPlanet does not normally have this product on hand and orders direct from the vendor. In my case that was okay as I don't use my rifle every day, however, others might find this to be quite an inconvenience.

This is a quality product at a great price. Easy update to any AR platform. A ambi safety is something that comes in handy and its a product that should be standard on all rifles. But this part and at this price makes it a very easy item to improve your AR platform.

Value item. The lever sticks down the same distance on both sides of the receiver, which may interfere with your trigger finger. But for $20, try it. If you don’t like it, swap it out. I haven’t used it yet.
