ASF/The Quick was designed from the ground up to be a
defense/duty/combat safety selector, its mission is quite aptly
reflected by the way its levers are attached the center, via a stainless
steel roll pin. The lever to center interface is immensely strong, the
high shear strength roll pin simply holds the two in place. There is no
wobble between the lever and center, we’ve called for very tight
tolerances on all ASF/The Quick components to achieve that.
Quack offers both the conventional non-offset standard and short
levers, the offset standard and short q levers, and an end cap. The q
levers are side specific, i.e. you don’t want to use a left q lever on
the right side, or vice versa. Q levers are offset levers, by moving the
lever as close to the shooter as possible, it enables the user to more
easily rotate it back to SAFE without shifting his grip.
Center options: 90 degree conventional, 50 degree short throw.
levers are serrated along the length to mitigate lateral movement. When
a user’s finger is rotating the lever, we want to add traction to
minimize movements to the side (slipping off the lever). The user’s
finger slides on the lever as the safety is being rotated, here we don’t
want traction to impede movement along the lever’s axis. Short levers
are wider than standard length levers, since it gives up on length, we
added some surface area back via width.
For dimple fans, there is a
single dimple on both sides to function as a position indicator (in
lieu of a pointer), it’s elegant and simple.
