The best just got better! From the inventors of the very first fully modular, patented, ambidextrous safety selector for the AR-15 platform, Battle Arms Development is raising the bar on reliability, compatibility and features while lowering the price with the new generation BAD-ASS-ELITE!

This professional grade, ENHANCED LIGHTWEIGHT semi-auto safety selector is the perfect upgrade to your AR-15. The CNC machined, billet 7075-T6 aluminum skeletonized levers are strong and lightweight. It comes standard with a precision SWISS CNC machined, reversible throw steel safety center core with 0°-90° and 0°-60° short-throw options. The standard and short aluminum safety levers are fully interchangeable and modular to accommodate left or right handed shooters.

The new BAD-ASS-ELITE is 100% compatible with all known1, AR variant lower receivers and triggers designed to work with the “Mil-Spec” AR-15 semi-auto safety. No longer do you need a short-throw relief cut on your lower receiver to use the ambidextrous safety, simply use the provided short-throw markings sticker! No longer do you have to choose which trigger is compatible with the safety! If the trigger it will work with a “Mil-Spec” AR-15 semi-auto safety, it will work with the new BAD-ASS-ELITE!

No more broken screws! Don’t settle for wiggling levers! No more stripped screw heads! The new patent pending dovetail design and internal locking mechanism makes impossible to shear off the screw head, because there is no screw head! Do not settle for spring loaded detents that never give your safety lever that positive lock of confidence and worry about losing the small parts. The new BAD-ASS-ELITE locking mechanism is robust, reliable and something you can depend your life on! The new internal locking set screw will not fall out and it is self-locking, no thread-locker is necessary! The new 5/64” set screw is also designed to resist stripping.

Battle Arms Development has perfected the ambidextrous safety with the BAD-ASS-ELITE! We are so sure that you will love the new BAD-ASS-ELITE, we are offering a no questions asked 30-day satisfaction guarantee in addition to our limited lifetime warranty! Try it! We guarantee you will never want another ambidextrous safety ever again!

Notes:  *BAD-ASS-ELITE safety selector is compatible with all known, to us, AR variant lower receivers and AR variant triggers designed to work with “Mil-Spec” style AR-15 semi auto safety selectors.  However, there is always a possibility that a new lower or trigger design, unknown to us, is incompatible with our safety.  **There is no longer a “lawyer pin” like the previous BAD-ASS-ST or BAD-CASS-SA-ST short-throw safety selectors.  The new BAD-ASS-NITE center will fit into all lower receiver with “Mil-Spec” safety selector hole dimensions.  If the BAD-ASS-NITE safety selector is installed on the short-throw option, in a lower receiver without the proper short-throw FIRE markings, the provided short-throw marking sticker must be used.  ***BAD-ASS-ELITE safety levers are interchangeable with BAD-ASS-PRO, BAD-ASS-LITE and BAD-ASS-NITE family of safety selectors.  However, the levers are not compatible with the legacy BAD-ASS and BAD-CASS family of safety selectors.  ****Fiber optic inserts sold separately.
