    I'm looking to upgrade my go to rifle with a ambi selector lever, and would like opinions on a good one to get. I would like shorter lower profile levers on both sides as well.

    What are you guys running?

    I don't currently run one, but I would only go with the one Troy makes simply because the locking detent will be more reliable than using screws.

    BADASS. The screws seem to work great, and I actually run a couple.

    I agree with the comment on BADASS. Well made and I think they are the best ones on the market.

    I'll look into the badass lever, thanks. It looks almost exactly what I am looking for.

    Any reliability issues with the screw on selectors?

    apply loctite

    I've run just about every ambi selector on the market. The BADASS is the BEST there is.

    I run a badass selector in each of my lowers. The 45 degree short throw is my favorite by a long shot. I have an install and in depth review on my YouTube channels below.

    I do not currently run a ambi, but if I did, the BADASS is well worth the money.

    Guys a lot higher speed than I have recommended it to me, and they use the hell out of their rifles. The BADASS holds up to serious use.

    I just put an ambi into a lower I'm build from out of the parts box. Feels like crap compared to a BADASS. Guess I'll have to order another one.

    I have the BADASS lever in both of my rifles. It is absolutely top notch.
