What's the best Best Safety Delete / Reverse?

Any issues with any of the aftermarket safety deletes or reverses?

Only problem is first gen apex safeties dont work well with folders.

Hbi , parker mountain , maniticore etc aftermarket safeties are all good to go. I'd recommend Parker mountain or the newer apex safeties. I hated the HBI AK style because it reverses your controls. With the ak style safeties up is fire down is safe while every other safety option safe is up and fire is down which is how 90% of all firearms come from factory including real AKs.

I'm running the long AK style on the right side.  I like it because it is obvious if the safety is off or on to an RO (I shoot mine in USPSA).

I use the stock safety on left and HB Industries mini AK on the right side. Index finger pulls safety ON, thumb pushes safety OFF. Love this set up

Also - does the long AK style HBI safety rub and eventually wear the finish off of the gun?
And does it work well with folding braces?

I don't know if it will cause wear marks partly because there is not an applied finish to wear off.  I have had no issue with the folding stock and the long HBI  AK'ish safety.

The AK safeties don't touch the receiver at all. And they work with the factory folding stock, so braces should be fine.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to have one gun be different on something that is nearly fundamental.  After some work the PMM safeties are honestly ideal.  It's a quarter throw.  Long on the driver's side, short passenger.  Thumb off/index on.  It's what it should have been.  (If CZ was smart that's what they would include.  And then make it so you could flip them to either side depending on if you are right or left handed.)

Thanks for all the info guys.

After further researching their sight I discovered they also have MINI AK style Saftey switches. I liked these most so I decided to get them  :)

I too have the left and right mini AK safeties.  I believe it's the best setup for an ambidextrous gun.  I haven't found any down sides to using them.

I went with the GearHead Works one and really like it. It is very comfortable and effortless to use. I did use a white nail polish and polish remover to apply and wipe away several coats till it built up to level. Now it has a smooth white indicator instead of just a blank groove.

I cheated - I hacksawed mine off. There were no aftermarket parts available at that time.
