I am needing a selector for my RRA that only protrudes from the right side of the rifle. I don't want an ambi as when I shoot the selector switch grinds on the first knuckle of my left hand. Short of buying an ambi and grinding off the left side, does anyone have any ideas?

Only thing I can think of would be to take a reguler selector (you can find em pretty cheap)and cut the lever off smooth and reattach it to the right side of the selector.

You could buy an Ambi selector and cut the left side off, that would be the easiest way.

Not at $30 for an ambi, just to cut it up.
I just bought 2 selectors on the EE for $7 shipped.

I have the same problem.
Olympic arms made reversable safetys. Both my Oly AR,s safteys are now left-hand only.
Ask Oly if they still make them, check the EE, or have a local gunsmith mill in the detent slot.

WildlandFirefighter, email me your mailing address, and I'll send you a selector that I have machined to be reversable (left or right side).
No charge from another lefty.

BTW- semi selector no FA, I hope that is what you need.

Unimog, you are the man... EMail sent...

JP is making a reversible selector now, but they want $40 for it! It will be cheaper for me to get ambi selectors and grind on them than buy this thing from JP. www.jprifles.com/TriggerParts.html

I shoot my rifles lefty (I'm right handed though) and I've only got one ambi selector (which I don't like.) The problem with the ambi selector is the part that sticks out for your thumb on the off side hits my hand at the top, so it isn't always easy to switch modes. I just need to figure out a way to get it done cheaply, since I've got 3 rifles to outfit.

Unimog,
If you could share how yours were machined to work, I can probably have someone local make some for me. I've got a bunch of lefty friends too who wouldn't mind outfitting their rifles.

On a somewhat related note, I'm not 100% satisfied with the Norgon catch either. I just can't get enough pressure on the little button to drop a mag unless the bolt is locked back. I think I'm going to have it drilled and tapped for a small paddle to be added to increase the leverage.

I've got ambi selectors on all my AR's. I simple cut the left side down to about 1/2 its normal length. This way, it doesn't hit my knuckle and a right hander can still operate it.

Hmmm, I might have to give that a try. Where is my Dremel ARFCOM precision milling machine??

Ordered a standard saftey about 6 months ago from Fulton Armory and what I received was a unit that could be used on either side of the receiver. Can't remember what I payed for it but I know it was in line with standard ones.
