I read on another site that all someone needs to do to make a left handed safety lever is to remove the lever (of course removing the selector detent and detent spring) and installing it from the right side of the receiver. Is this true?

No.

The detent channel on the safety is only machined on one side. If you flip it to the other side, the detent will be useless.

Or put a matching detent channel "trough and holes" on the opposite side of the selector.

Thanks for the info guys. It's been a while since I tore down an AR but I suspected this was not right.

What you are trying to do will not work.

For a lefty, I might suggest that you take a look at the new adjustable reversable safety that JP Enterprises has out now. link here!

I installed one a couple of weeks ago. It is a quality piece and has a good feel to it. However, I'm not a lefty and have not researched what a lefty or ambi selector would cost as an alternative. So the price may or may not be a little high.

You might want to send an IM to Tweak and ask where his GF got her left handed selector.

ETA: She has an account, 9milie I think, but I haven't seen her post here in a long time.

Take a look at this D&L Sports, Inc. right hand and left hand tactical safety/ selector switch.
