The ASF 50 is one important little improvement to the shooting experience and Forward Controls has built this safety selector with them in mind. From its very inception the ASF50 degree throw lever was designed and built to be a defense/duty/combat selector. The lever to center interface is unbelievable strong and built with shear strength at a simply amazing 800 pounds. Built from 420 grade stainless steel, the spring steel roll pin holds the lever and pin itself in place. As with a lot of levers of this kind wobble is a traditional aspect of the lever itself, but Forward Controls Design was all over that, designing the ASF50Q with truly remarkable tolerances of +0.001/-0.00.

Any shooter or operator who’s had the pleasure of working with Forward Controls products knows they really get into dimpled patterns on control surfaces so some may be a bit surprised with these Quick Levers. Diagonal serrations don’t quite cut it, simply because the finger slides. Perpendicular serrations aren’t all that helpful either. Serrations parallel to the length of the lever itself is the answer which doesn’t impede the shooter or operator’s finger.
To top all that off, when the operator or shooter holds the grip the profile of the ASF conforms to the angle of the thumb’s pad.
These folks have been doing this for a long time folks, and it shows with the design and construction of a really elegant and fully functional Safety Selector with a 50 degree throw.
