The Strike Industries SI QD Slide Cover Plate (Back Plate) for Glock pistols isn’t the only new product SI has–not be a long shot. , They’ve also deveveloped a REALLY interesting safety/selector switch called the Strike Switch, which is a 60/90-degree AR (AR-15) safety/selector switch with a patent-pending ‘push’/toggle-action selector design and ambi (ambidextrous) upgrade capability for “extreme ergonomics”. Since we here at DefenseReview (DR) are fans of any tactical AR rifle/carbine/SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) accessory, component or part that makes one’s life a little better through quicker, easier weapons handling, we’re really interested in this little puppy.
Until now, the only similar product we’ve had any experience with is the Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS short-throw 45-degree ambi (ambidextrous) safety/selector switch, which we really like. So, we’re interested to see how the SI Strike Switch stacks up in ergonomics and performance. We’re guessing pretty well. The Strike Switch looks pretty badass, in its own right.
Anyway, Defense Review received the following info and specs on the SI Strike Switch directly from Strike Industries:
Colors: Black, Red, Grey and Blue
Finish: Hard anodize
2x Shaft Screw
1x 60/90 Shaft
1x End Cap
1x Right Side Strike Switch
1x Left Side Strike Switch
Ergonomic, intuitive, and fast. The Strike Switch is a modular safety selector designed from inception
using human factor considerations to aid positive on safe, on fire manipulations. The unique toggle
action allows one to quickly engage the safety when moving positions without altering the firing grip.
The extended lever arm serves as an index point and thumb rest in either position. End user has the
option to use a 60 or 90 degree throw and is able to configure left, right or ambidextrous operation.
– Ergonomic Shape
– Modular Assembly
– Precision Machined
– Strike 60/90 Option”
