    Hi im looking into the spikes enhanced lpk and was wondering if you have to install the ambi safety switch with as an ambi or if you can just install it as right handed operation only. The reason i'm asking is cause i really like the looks of the kit but have no use for an ambidextrious safety. thx for your help

    I'm a righty but prefer having ambi safety as I find it easier to engage the safety with my index finger on the right side rather than my thumb on the left. I release the safety with my thumb on the left side and then engage the safety wth my index finger on the right side.

    For the Spikes LPK though you would need to use the ambi lever or you could just get a non-ambi lever and use it.

    I'm stripping out a dpms lower receiver in exchange for a spikes enhanced lpk. But i don't care for the ambi safety switch. Being right handed i don't really need the ambi safety switch. What i'm trying to decide is should i just leave the stock switch on there or spend a little extra cash on one of those bad *** levers with the small thin lever. Any suggestions or opinionswould be helpful thx

    dpms safety

    I know dpms is not well regarded as a whole but my question is are their milspec safety levers reliable or are they low quality

    The DPMS selector likely is reliable.

    It should work. But always function test any time you mess with the FCG.

    You're overthinking this. Mil-Spec is the (MINIMUM REQUIREMENT NEEDED) that the Military allows through testing over time.

    Everything I've seen from Military Specs can be improved and most have been.

    DPMS Safety Selectors are GTG.

    merged for clarity of topic. keep it concise. starting multiple threads for the same basic issue only ends up getting less response than keeping it concise.
