Armaspec has made your dreams a reality with the AST90, their 90 Degree Short Throw Safety Selector.

Just a Flick of Your Thumb

That’s all it takes to operate the Armaspec AST90 short throw safety selector. The AST90 is an assisted short throw™ safety selector. It operates like a 45-degree safety from the operator’s perspective. Just flick the lever to the 45-degree point and the AST90 will continue on its own to the 90-degree mark and your safety will release as though you had muscled it all the way through.

The AST90 gives you the rapid disengagement you want while maintaining the original safety functions of your weapon. You don’t have to change your grip to operate this AR Ambi safety because you don’t have to extend your reach past the 45-degree point.

There’s no learning curve to master, nothing to alter in your rifle. The Armaspec AST90 drops in and works like a dream.

  • Works and looks Great

    The only issue i have with this is it fits a little loose and makes trying to throw the safety using the short arm awkward. other than that it is lighting fast getting the safety off using the long arm the grooves on it grab against your finger perfectly, neither my thumb or fore finger when switching hands has ever slipped off it. 5 stars would have been if the short arm felt the same as the long.

    Item is as described. The Saftey selector is very smooth and swift and locks down at stock semi and safe location. Great price and great fast service at wing tactical. Aloha
