When I built my Spikes lower about a year ago I decided to drop in the enhanced LPK with the ambi-safety. I think I remember reading in a post a while back that it was Battle Arms Development who actually built the safety though. If this is true, does anyone know if you can swop the stock selector levers that on the Spikes ambi-safety for one of BAD’s?

Do you have a picture? I have a Jolly Roger I bought from Spikes that came with a BAD safety.

That safety is not compatible with the BAD levers that I know of.

ST sells the BADASS, and uses it as the default part on their premium rifles (Compressor, Vanguard, Assassin, etc). For the ELPK, a more traditional ambi-safety is used.

Oh ok, well how noticeable difference between the ambi safety that comes in the ELPK, and the BAD-ASS one that Spikes sells? And is there a big difference between Spikes’, which they Nickel-Boron coat, and just the regular BAD-ASS ones?

The standard ambi has rounded selectors, like you would find in any standard lpk. The BAD-ASS has squared off selectors for more positive contact and it has interchangeable levers to suit whether you're primarily left or right handed. The only real difference with the ST version of the BAD-ASS is the inclusion of the NiB coating to the cylinder, everything else is the same or compatible with the original from BAD.

Thanks JaxChris, I assumed that the feel of the selector lever would be different, but I was more wondering if there is a noticeable feel in the “smoothness” between the regular ambi, the BAD ambi, and the ST NiB coated BAD ambi? I just know that, (in my opinion at least), there is a world of difference between my old DD BCG, (that only had 300-400 rds. through it), and the new NiB coated ST BCG that I just picked up, and wasn’t sure if the safeties had the same difference in feel.

No, not much of a difference in the feel of the rotation on the selectors. The reasoning behind the NiB coating for the cylinder was to make it as easy to wipe down as the Battle Trigger & NiB BCG.
