The Quick and FCD’s ASF is a joint project between SOLGW and FCD The two companies have been collaborating on a few projects, starting with the 4140 steel MLOK sling mount (MSQ-H). Work began in Dec. 2018 to create a safety that’s an embodiment of our not inconsiderable experience in AR15/M16 selector design and knowledge over the years.
ASF 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 incredibly strong, the high shear strength (800 lbs) 420 stainless steel spring steel roll pin simply holds the two in place, and doesn’t handle any load. One of the design goals dictates there be no wobble between the lever and center, we’ve called for very tight tolerances (+0.001/-0.00) on Quick’s lever and center interface to achieve that.
ASF is shipped with a selector spring, a nitrided selector detent, two levers, 4 roll pins (two are needed for installation, with 2 spares).
We do not ship the Quick with one lever installed as we recommend installing the center )dimple forward) and installing the grip, allowing the detent to hold the center in place. Using a vice block to then hold the lower as both levers are installed.
ASF centers are billet machined in 4140, heat treated and black nitrided. Levers are billet machined in 4140 and black nitrided.
The Quick is a collaboration with Forward Controls Design. Made in the USA.
