Should You Use 45 or 90 Degree Angle?
The Talon 45/90 lets the user easily switch between a standard 90 degree switch to a 45 degree angle switch by rotating the center shaft and re-mounting the switches.
This process is very simple compared to other selector switches on the market, and the use of quick springs and detents makes the installation process a breeze!
Personally, we only recommend using the 90 degree angle mode.
The reason behind this is simple, standard AR15’s work at 90 degree angles, and most of our training will be with using standard 90 degree switches, so why switch it up?
The 45 degree angle may cause confusion: is it broken? Is it stuck? It’s no time to start switching things up, especially in the middle of a stressful situation.
The other reasoning is that the 45 degree angle makes it too easy to switch the gun from semi to safe mode.
This is not really desirable in a life or death situation, as accidents happen and you never want to be in a situation where your gun is on safe when you DIDN’T want it to be on safe!
This is 100% personal opinion, you can choose to use either, but we always recommend the 90 degree angle.
How to Install?
Install just like any ordinary AR15 selector switch. Insert the center shaft into your AR lower, you may need to loosen or adjust the position of your trigger in order to get the bar to go through (depending on your trigger).
You can lock the hammer back and test whether it is currently in the 45 or 90 degree configuration, and make adjustments accordingly before locking down the center shaft with the grip detent (usually these come pre-packaged with the selector switch pre-installed in the 90 degree angle configuration).
Important: we never recommend to dry fire your AR lower without the upper and BCG fully installed. It is best to use your finger to hold down the hammer while testing without the upper installed.
