Is there an ambi safety that works with CSA rifles?
« on: January 14, 2018, 12:51:09 PM »
I have a 2017 CSA vz. 58 Military rifle and would like to install an ambi safety.  Are there any that work with the CSA rifles?

In researching this site, I've seen a couple comments stating that the NEA ambi safety would work but they're no longer in production.  Can someone confirm that these do indeed work with CSA rifles?  And if so, does anyone have one they'd be willing to sell (long shot, I know...)?

Thanks.

It seems like a no-brainer that there would be an ambi safety for the CSA guns, considering the quality and popularity of them.

FWIW, I contacted CNC Warrior a while ago about it, and they said they'd consider making one. They already make several Vz58 parts, including receivers. So, people might contact CNC so maybe customer interest will motivate them to move forward with it.

OK, I'll contact them about making one as well.  Thanks!

NEA had one at one point.  The Czechs make one that is rear to fire that should work; but you'd need to cut your own sear notch in it for forward to fire (as well as a safety selector retention notch in that 90* forward position).  The finish on the Czech safety is quite nice.  Just not 100% certain that receiver dimensions match...  I should have a couple on hand if you want to give it a go.  PM and I'll confirm.

I have suggested for some time that Horse/RS Regulate consider making a Galil-style safety for use with their side rails (and interchangeable selector for those that don't want to run the rail). 

Perhaps with side plate in production he'll consider adding that to the mix.
