Fulton Armory dummy selector switch

Does anyone have one of fultons dummy selector switches? What do you think of it? It suggests that you epoxy it into place, is this necessary?

I have one screwed and pinned in place on a nice tiger stripe stock. I didn't want to fill in the hole with epoxy. Frankly, I am sorry I put the Fulton on because the fake fun switch is sharp and can get in the way of working the op rod. If you want to fill the hole you may prefer the base model Hawk sells that just has the button without the switch. I believe it is cheaper too. Live and learn....

I prefer the button look better but I've already been waiting 2.5+ months on a Hawks kit. I just ordered another big red stock so now I need a second dummy kit and I still haven't gotten my first one, so I figured I'd try the fulton. Why is it sharp is that just the way its cast? is it a USGI part modified? or some rough, sharp, cast piece from fulton? I also am not a super big fan of the connector arm rubbing the finish off my GI op-rod. Also it seems like that it could affect accuracy, anything that would rub on the action while its cycling could change the POI couldn't it?

Please don't fool with them, go to Hawk's Site and choose what You need, that way Your Rifle will look like the Real Thing and You'll still be Legal!

Get it from Hawk, it doesn't just look real , it is.

I got the one with the button and the bar that hooks the op rod.

Fulton's switch fit's well and fills the hole. I screwed mine in if I remember correctly.

Hawk has a kit that will look as correct as possible for your rifle. Not all receivers can be fitted with the connector arm. Armscorp receivers can not in my experience. You have a choice of button or switch.

All are expensive but get you the look and....fill the hole.

Well a very nice member offered to sell me a Hawks kit he had a price that he's almost giving it away, so I don't need a fulton kit. One of my questions still remain? does the connector arm affect accuracy? Also to the people that have the hawks kit do you grease where the connector arm and op-rod arm touch?

I have Hawk's Kits on my two Match Rifles and on my Standard, NO they do NOT affect accuracy!

It appears to be a GI switch and part of the connecting rod. It is "sharp" mainly because it sticks out so far. I will eventually remove mine and change over to one made by Hawk, but I am in no rush because the rifle is now in a fiberglass stock with the hole filled with epoxy.
