Fake selector switches?

does anybody know where i can find some fake selector switches made from original USGI parts. It seems like a lot of people have them and i can't seem to find any websites that sell them anymore. Any help would be great.

The Fulton Armory Fake Selectors are not made using USGI parts. To me they look chinzy, the Hawk kits are where it's at, but expect a wait!

a wait indeed, im approaching a year, whcih i have heard is the expected time, i knew a few people who have hit the year mark when they get theirs in the mail.

Mine has the switch not the button, as i find it to be authentic, even if its just for kicks at the range, but if i want to go full auto i just need to remember to not hold the stock so tight

(scared the crap out of me the first time, i though i was dreaming, LOL)

Your right brother! Makes you feel like you should be getting interest on your money! LOL!




Production times:

About as funny as a "MEN AT WORK" sign that PENNDOT displays on our highways!

i have faith, i know he is busy with other things, i have checked in to make sure im still not forgotten.

i figured that since im not going with a cheapy econo kit that mine will take longer, plus like everyone else im sure this is not his main job.

You are correct sir.

That's why I refer to them as "fake"

Sparrow hawk kits are made from original USGI demilled parts.

I like the Fulton switches. They do a good job filling the hole and it was also good enough to fool an old timer at the range last week.

Sure, they're fake. Just as fake as the receivers they sit next to.
