M14 "Dummy" or "Simulated" selector switch kit.

Hi everybody!

I am wondering if anyone here know a good place where I can get one of the selector switch kits, biggest problem right now is I'm in Canada, and pretty much every website cant ship to Canada, so besides taking a trip down south, does anyone (mostly other Canadians) on here know of any place I might be able to get one shipped here, or even a store in the US where I might be able to find one (New York state area) ?

thanks for any and all info

I didn't know they made such a thing.... why would you want one knowing its fake?

*shrugs* I guess its just like the Spikes AR15 lower that comes with the select fire setting on the lower receiver even though the selector will never go past semi-auto.

I understand your point, but if my stock had the hole for it I'd want to fill it with something. A wood plug would be more functional of course, but it would look like a wood plug.

I don't have one, btw.

Why do you need a fake selector, or an assault weapon. This nation will greatly improve once people stop judging and mind their own. Because i want one. Hows that?

Thanks from Long Gun

Most of my M14 type rifles have Hawk;s kits on them. The parts are all USGI and connect to the stock only, making them cosmetic and non functional. I use mostly USGI stocks and I think they look foolish without out a hole filler.

You can assault someone with any kind of weapon.

Getting back to the original subject, I guess I can kinda see why someone would want even a fake selector switch. Some M1A enthusiasts are really attracted to the mil-spec aspect of M1A ownership. I got no beef with anyone who wants to make their M1A look like an M14 with a selector switch that doesn't work and a bayonet lug that will never really be used for its intended purpose.

I'd never cut my stock out to mount a fake switch... but I sure wouldn't mind having a bayonet lug and a real USGI bayonet!

Thanks from CeeJay

Interesting question if these can be shipped outside the country. THey WERE gun parts when they were put on an M14, and are subject to ITAR. But when they are a component of a non-functioning decorative kit for an M1A (especially because they attach to the stock, not the receiver), it is arguable that they are an accessory, which is not ITAR regulated.

Do you want the selector switch, or will the dummy button fit your needs?

Thanks from CeeJay

No one here has a butt ache. Maybe you're knew ro the internet as well?

Most m1a's have that hole cut out, as most are put into gi stocks. With the hole exposed crap can get into the tg and reciever easily. I shoot in sand and i found that to be true.

Its generally better to ask, what is the reasoning for a selector switch. Because the words dont give the emotion behind them, with phrases that can be read differently its better to give that inch up from to avoid this kind of stuff. Apparently i didnt word my choice as well, and i apologize if it was inerpreted wrong. 'Why do you need one' i read as judgmental.

Clearly my awb mention went over your head. I meant that you judging is just as bad as people that ask why one needs an assault weapon. Its ironic that thy arent familiar with aw and make comments, and that you made your comment with out being familiar with stocks. Now i miss read your intention, so its a moot point.

We're all brothers here. I see your from tx, and im from ma, so if you hang around here im sure we will have our dofferences as ive found to be the case. This is because of differences of opinions nothing else. Trust me nothing u say will offend me, but if it did im big enough to deal with it.

I suppose we both interpreted wrong. Hopefully things don't turn sour for you up in MA.... but at the rate things are going they very likely can. There's plenty of room down in Texas!
