As the AR-15 is now traditionally a semi-automatic rifle, the selector found on the rifle is capable of only two settings – "safe" and "fire". I am telling you this, of course, because the AR-15 selector is the newest of our ever-increasing line of house-brand spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform. Each brand new, MIL-SPEC selector is guaranteed to fit in your MIL-SPEC AR-15 while offering optimal performance.
The AR-15 selector, as are all of our Keepshooting.com house brand spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform, is a brand new part produced in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that holds several foreign military contracts. As such, all parts are compatible with and interchangeable in any MIL-SPEC AR-15.
Located on the left side of the lower receiver, the selector is a small switch that extends through the lower receiver, and is designed to switch between two fire settings – "safe" and "fire". By pointing the selector to "fire", the operator disengages the safety, making the rifle ready for fire. By pointing the selector to "safe", which can be done only if the hammer is cocked, the operator locks the trigger in place, ensuring that a discharge is unable to take place. The selector is held in place by the selector detent.
Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly – especially those components that make up the fire controls. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes immediately necessary – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
It is also important to consider availability when discussing spare and replacement parts. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform. Several brand new parts from the Keepshooting.com house brand are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need or desire for spare or replacement parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.
