Sweet, I like the mag link but I'm not sure how I would use it. I heard the new PTS ASAP would be LM4 compatible but it's good to see that it actually is. I just modded an RS one yesterday and it fit on the PTS lower great, though I find it odd that a lot of people have said they needed to grind the 'ears' down a little too because I didn't have to touch them at all, in fact there was quite a bit of space between them and the lower. Maybe the Magpul lower is made a little differently? That selector looks awesome too, but it seems like it doesn't click into a solid position like the stock one does, is that true or does it just not come through the video very well?

The selector is very positive..I think it might have just been the vid..and yea im not sure about the rs asap..but as you can see I had to grind down on the ears of mine..and I've heard others say they didn't have too as well either..this new asap does fit nicely tho..im gonna try to install on we/g&p/ino/wa to see if there is any fitment issues.

Boobie or Akira- Did Alex say anything about whether just the switches will be available for sale? I would love to have double standard levers instead of 1 of each.

Boobie or Akira- great videos and new from both of you.

I don't know how much input you guys have with Magpul PTS besides the review of the items they send you, but is it possible to suggest some kind of ambi-mag release?  I mean it only makes sense if they're going to release ambi-selectors.  Also, I hope they send you guys a PTS Rainer arms charging handle soon too.   I personally only want it for a full ambi-gun because it would be cool, but I'm really asking for my left-handed teammates or any other left handed lm4 users.

I'd really like to get my gun fully ambi since I switch hands so often, that way I wouldn't have to worry about awkward controls and such. The ASAP is by far my favorite thing I've added so far, my sling used to get so messed up when I tried to switch to my left hand.

uscmCorps would best be able to answer your questions. He is a PTS employee and a cool guy to chat with. Though to be honest I wouldn't hold my breath on a PTS ambi mag catch. I don't think any of their licensing partners make ambi mag catches.Your best bet would be to look around for Akira's post on how to mod an AEG catch.

Boobie! Fantastic video! You and Akira both did great jobs on the reviews and I really appreciate your install demos to show just how easy and drop in they are for this system.expect more samples for other products soon. Raptors are incoming! The samples I handled felt just like my real ones.

Ambi mag releases would be cool, but as you guys pointed out, I don't believe any of PTS' partner company makes them. Though I would never say "never" given the number of companies reaching out to us in pursuit of seeing their products reproduced for the GBBR platform.

Regarding extra SSG levers, that's not a bad idea. I'll inquire about that. The trouble is, a lot of parts are often molded as sets. So it's possible that the levers are also molded in pairs, and might not be available individually. But you've made a very reasonable suggestion, and depending on the popularity of the product, might be easier for me to push.

Thanks again to Boobie for the video review!

Looks to be nice products can't wait to get my hands on some! Most interested   in the Ambi SSG selector. Would like to try the feel of them. The look comes off much different then what I've seen before! Just happy someone is showing some love to the LM4 as it deserves. Good job with the videos fellas!

That's awesome! The more the merrier when it comes to accessories :)

Even if you guys sold it in a set of two levers, that would be fine. Just as long as it wasn't as expensive as getting a whole new selector kit like it is on TMC right now.
