So I decided to build another rifle and chose to go with all ambi controls on it for all the tacticool points. I figured it would be a good idea to learn to shoot and manipulate my rifle on my weak side, so what the heck, why not make it easier with ambi controls. I went with aero precision ambi bolt catch, kac ambi mag release, radian ambi safety, and geissele ambi charging handle. Had to machine the bolt catch area all the way through in order to install the ambi bolt catch. Here’s my build.

Right handed fire? So you would be learning the ambi side of that catch using your strong side, no?

Do you thumb the right side paddle with your right hand while holding the grip?

With the money you invested in that build why not just buy an American Defense ambi lower?

Yes, right handed fire. And yes. I run the bad lever on my other ar, so the learning curve would be learning where the bolt catch is with my trigger finger.

No, my thumb doesn’t reach that far.

This lower used to be mated to a 16” bcm upper, but I gave that upper to my wife, so this ended up being an extra lower. I would really like the lmt Mars ambi lower, but I wasn’t aware of the adm one. Hmm, I’ll look into it. Thanks for the link.

Looks good!

I've got a Six8 UCIW that's full ambi. Hopefully the ATF will sign off on the form 4 soon.

I like your CA compliance tricks.  I like the Hogue mag lock system too.  Done it to most of my AR's.
