Resurgent Arms, LLC
Version 2.1 -- center drum upgraded for a crisper click and enhanced compatibility with aftermarket triggers!
A complete safety, giving a thumb-flick to right-handed shooters. This is the only safety on the market that has been designed from the ground-up to pair perfectly with a featureless AR-15 grip.
- A 45-degree throw angle, to keep the paddle easily within thumb reach,
- Paddle shape designed specifically for a compliant hand position.
Note: with FDE and ODG colors, there will be a small gap in cerakote on the inside of the screw-hole, where the product hung from the hook to be coated. The gap will not be visible after installation.
I live in NY State and have transformed my AR 15 platform MSR to the featureless standards required by state government. I've opted for the Thordsen Gen II stock since the standard pistol grip is illegal if one chooses to keep the option for a removable magazine. I found immediately that the rifle grip which the Thordsen stock/grip replicates is completely incompatible with the AR lower design by eliminating the firing hand's easy access to the safety selector. I found that not only was I not able to reach the safety with my thumb without rotating my wrist to reach it, I sometimes needed to take my eyes of target to look for the safety. The EXTENDED SAFETY V2.1 from Resurgent Arms is the only solution on the market, that I could find, that addresses all these issues and has restored that level of confidence that every shooter needs to operate this MSR properly. The design and manufacturing quality is apparent from look to touch to ease of installation and ease of operation. The most appealing feature is the 45 degree throw from safe to fire: pure genius as far as I'm concerned. The ordering and delivery process went without a glitch which means, of course, I look forward to doing business with Resurgent Arms in the future.
This extended safety selector is made from quality materials and functions exactly as described. If you live in a restricted state and decide to build a rifle without the "evil features" definitely go with the Resurgent Arms grip, this item and the Ergonomic end plate. These items compliment each other!
I Love this product so much i bought it for my second AR. First full build and Im excited to incorporate this safety. Also the coloring is nice. First one i got was Red the second was OD Green. Great Quality Products 10/10 would recommend.
I only gave 4 stars because I just received the item, so I can't take into account durability. However, it was quite easy to install, looks great and most importantly it functions exactly as I need it to. Essentially I use a Thordston stock and was unable to move my safety to the firing position or back to safe without turning the gun on side. This extension allows me to do both without pulling the gun from my shoulder or eye from the optic. This creates efficiency and additional safety as the firearm remains safely on target.
This is by far my favorite safety. Love the look and the feel.
This is my second Resurgent Arms safety. I have one on each of my ARs now. The ergonomics are perfect for my featureless ARs in California. I tried other extended safeties and they failed to give me the functionality I needed for run and gun, tactical type shooting. The engagement is positive, ergonomic and the machining is top notch.
Best product on the market for this purpose. Sometimes edges may be a little sharp, easy fix with fine file. Otherwise no complaints.
This extended safety switch is exactly what I was looking for. With small hands and a short thumb the standard AR safety selector gives me trouble to operate efficiently. However, this extended selector fits the bill perfectly for me. The edges are a bit sharp/rough, but it works for me. Not so much for my buddy as it chewed up his thumb. Can’t wait to try it out during a training class. Worked perfectly enough that I ordered more.
Perfect safety. Gives you that extra reach. Especially when dealing with a thordsen stock.
