    Hi guys, just ordering some parts for the next build & came across these ambi-safeties. they have two models, 2 position semi auto & 3 position select fire. Will the 3 position work in a semi auto???
    Just curious mind you...

    As always Thanks in advance...;)

    Should this be in the NFA section????

    Other than a M16 BCG, you should not put ANY full-auto FCG parts in your semi-auto firearm. The BATF has been known to go after "constructive intent"... o_O

    Not being a lawyer or playing one on TV, I personally see no problem with this. The selector would not make your gun fire any differently. I also really see this as no different than a lower with markings in all three positions, (no pew, pew,pew pew) even if you added that safety selector to the pew lower you still only have no pew and pew. Just my opinion which is generally worth allot less tha .02...

    True Dat on both accounts. I'm not advertising running afowl of the law and do not see a problem since they sell them off the shelf & no ffl is needed since it's not an NFA item

    Excellent subject and thank you. I do not know for sure the BATFE current rulings on possession of specific M16 bottom parts inside your AR15 rifle. Right now M16 bolt carriers are legal. Did not used to be. Long ago, M16 carriers were legal. Then NOT legal. Now they are legal.

    Bottom end parts? Gray area. Seems modified M16 parts are fine. Most nowadays AR15 Hammers and Disconnecter s are modified M16 parts. Legal. No problems. But .... if one specific M16 part is used, then what would the BATFE say? A M16 selector may not be a good idea.

    Just me. All Oregon State, US Code Laws And NFA Rules Apply.

    PS: Lenix Mint 17 Firefox Mozilla spelll chzk ist sehr funny. :)

    just use "the Gavel" you bought the other day Jim ;) don't take the chance. I asked the same question after getting a milsurp 3 pos. a month or so ago. They legally use them in those TacCom 3MR triggers, so I figured it would be OK but apparently they are different. You likely wouldn't have a problem unless they were after you for something else, and they would use it as extra fuel. It's too grey of an area, not worth loosing you're 2A rights. I traded mine for a regular 2 pos ambi.
