the Bad ass safey can be bought with a cap to go on the left side of the rifle making it truly only a left safety.

Colt's current OEM selector lever is reversible in the way you described.

Single sided safety with detent tracks on both sides so it can be installed from either side of the receiver.

I'm sure someone has a spare after replacing their with a BAD or something. I got rid of all mine years ago.

It's quite possible that they have changed since I bought my PSA LPKs, but mine are not reversible. Extended yes, but not reversible

Haven't handled the PSA selector, but saw photos of it that they were extended in the same way as the Colt OEM and assumed they would also be reversible. I guess not, huh?

Have edited my post to reflect.

Colt still makes this selector Brownells sells it, also a new company called Ambi makes a cool locking tab reversable selector.

The Colt selector is reversible as Augee mentioned. I'm a lefty and like this selector.
