When you build an AR Platform rifle you’ll have a laundry list of small parts that are really easy to overlook but can make a serious impact on how your weapon system operates. Many of those small parts are controls like magazine catches, forward assists, and safety selectors. While you might not think much about your choice of safety selector when you’ve got a trigger and bolt carrier group to pick out, but the first time you take that new rifle out to the range your choice of safety selector is going to reveal itself as a pretty important piece of equipment. If you want a nickel boron safety selector, Wing Tactical offers an excellent choice. The WMD Safety selector features their exclusive NiB-X surface treatment, the hardest nickel boron coating on the market today.
When you choose a nickel boron safety selector for your AR you want the best safety switch system to give you the most reliable, longest service life. Anything less would be a waste of time. When you choose a WMD Safety Selector you’re getting a safety selector coated with their next-generation NiB-X nickel boron. NiB-X is different than other manufacturers’ nickel boron surface coatings. WMD uses their own special recipe nickel boron solution as well as an exclusive process that creates an extremely even deposit of nickel boron in a lead-free process. After heat treating, WMD’s NiB-X is the hardest Nickel Boron treatment on the market. It’s more durable than most common Mil-Spec coatings and retains the inherent lubricity that makes Nickel Boron a smooth as silk and easy to clean surface in most applications.
These selectors fit great. They are made of a great metal composition that makes for smooth and solid movement.
I ordered a WMD safety selector a couple weeks ago and it works perfectly. In fact switching to safe/fire feels nice and smooth with a tiny audible click. I put this into an 80% I made functional last week. One minor annoyance (veryyyy minor) was that I had to lightly file the selector switch holes to fit the safety. I should have expected that the nickel boron would be a few microns thicker. But with a little patience and some oil we have a fully functional safety selector switch. It works flawlessly with my Hiperfire trigger group i installed. Anything Wing sells is pretty much quality.
