Best way to sight in is on a bench rest with no side wind. Without match grade ammo you will see some deviation (flyers) which is normal. best thing is to minimize all movement and sight in for 50 or 75 yards.

I'm interested. I've flopped mine to the right side in the mean-time which works for me, but it will screw up any righties that borrow it!

they work great Jon, feels just a tiny bit like it's twisting when I apply pressure to select fire, but that could be from the 3d printing, Great Design, My son tells me, " we got to get more of these dad", Can't wait to see how far you go with these

Jon,

Thanks for the update! Battle Arms will do a great job on it! I am glad you are making headway I know there are a lot of 15-22 owners who will do this swap!

Merry Christmas!

Everything is coming along nicely with the safety centers. Battle Arms Development is going to have some prototypes made first to ensure everything works like it should. Right now the production run is still several weeks out.

We discussed doing the safety center out of aluminum, but the cost of aluminum and steel is about the same. So the best option will be to go ahead and make it from steel and have it heat treated for durability. Since the safety centers will be made of steel, the plastic detent will need to be replaced. The kit will include a hardened stainless steel dent that will hold up to the steel centers.

So far the most popular levers are the standard and the short, that is what will most likely be in the kit. We have talked about doing a three lever kit, but that is still up in there air. However, what is really great about Battle Arms Development is that they offer a lever exchange program that will allow you to trade out a lever for another with out paying for a new one.

Now I know the biggest question everyone has is, what's the price. I don't have an exact price yet, but should know in the next couple of days.

If any one has any other questions let me know.

Thanks
Jon

I talked with Battle Arms Development yesterday and they suggested offering a kit that comes with just 1 lever with an end cap, in addition to offering the 2 lever kit. The one lever kit would be cheaper and allow you to swap the lever from either side easily, and if you wanted you can replace the end cap with a lever later on.

Let me know what you think about the idea of a single lever kit.

Thanks
Jon

Will you be taking orders from/shipping to the UK? <please!>

You will not be able to use stock lever from the 15-22. The stock safety selector center and lever are one piece. Battle Arms Development and I are making a new replacement safety center that will use their levers only. If you purchased the 1 lever kit and wanted 2 levers later on, you would have to buy an additional lever.

I've been browsing this forum for a while without an account and registered specifically for this thread. I just bought an M&P15-22 a few days ago and am interested in the drop in safety selector. Bad Arms Development makes a great product and this one shouldn't be any different.

I would like for it to be offered with 2 levers though as I am an ambi shooter and prefer ambi selectors. My preference would be for thin levers on both sides.

I think offering it as two kits (single lever with end cap) and (ambi with two levers) is a great idea.

Thanks for the update on your progress. I think having both options are a great idea. Personally a 2 lever kit would be more beneficial for me as my other platforms are ambi. It appears that that most members are looking for an ambi setup as well.

It would be interesting to create a poll on this thread to see what others are interested in though.

Based on my shooting needs I would be interested in a metal selector, but only if in the $25-$35 range.

Right now the prototypes are scheduled to be made in a couple of weeks, then a production run will be done. I would estimate by then end of march they will be available. We are planning to stick with a two lever kit and a single lever kit with an end cap.

Good to hear. It would be great if there other levers would fit as well since I have some extra ones.

Is the 15-22 2-lever kit going to be the same 1x standard thick / 1x short thick lever selection as in the current BA 2-piece kit?

All of the Battle Arms Development levers will fit the new 15-22 safety center, so if you have extras you can use them.

It will be just like the current Battle Arms Development 2 lever kit with 1 standard thick and 1 short thick. We may have a couple of other kits with other popular lever options.

Just talked with Battle Arms Development about pricing. We may run an intro special that will drop the price, but for now this is what the kits will cost.


The standard 2 lever kit will cost $54.00.

The 1 lever kit with an end cap will cost $51.00.

$50.00+ for a metal selector? I think I'll pass. That's about twice what I would be willing to pay.

I don't understand the price being that high, to me, who is only an amatuer fabricator, you are only makeing a new center shaft and using existing levers. If I guess correctly, you are basiclaly only modifing the exisiting part for a standard AR and adding alittle length? I was really figuring around $30 to $35 shipped.

Guys, That is what the Battle Arms Ambi prices are for their AR15 version ones. They are top quality! You can count me in.

I guess thats why S&W uses a plastic one instead of metal on the $400 15-22.

Triggs75 is right. I understand the sticker shock some of you may have, but you have to take into consideration a few things.

First, the ambi selector they make for the standard AR15 is currently $60 with 3 levers.

Second, even comparing their AR15 ambi selector to other ones on the market, the ones from BAD are machined from solid bar stock steel, not cast or molded. While this process leads to better tolerances and a higher quality product, it is a more complex process and therefore more expensive.

Lastly, when only one company makes a product without any competitors they can charge what they want. It's just the way it is.

I do remember seeing some pictures on another forum of some selectors sticking out a bit from standard AR15 lower receivers, so you may want to try one of those on your 15-22 but it's not guaranteed.
