Does anyone knows, how did the MK17 have different kind of Selector/Safety Lever?
Especially the one with 90 degree as AR15 style!!
Thank you very much!!
The standard select-fire modules are marked at 45 and 90 degrees. I believe that NSW requested that the mil select-fire modules be marked at 90 and 180 degrees.

So, Stryker is OEM for FN? Did they provide any lower or 90 degree selecto to FN or military?
Coz I have found out some SF images, they got a lot of MK17 with 90 degree seletor.

One more, if your selector original come back is in 45 degree, then if you change it to 90 degree,
how come to change the marking on the lower?

Welcome. The selector positions changed with the weapons evolution. The First (picutured in the upper right on your original post was too easy to confuse 1 (semi) with S (safe) so they changed it to the photo on the lower left. Turns out troops were confusing the A as semi on it so they switched to back to the legacy M16 90* throw.

Stryker is a commercial aftermarket manufacturer who specializes in the FN SCAR platform. He does not provide the selectors for issued MK 17s ,FN does. The selector that was linked is a commercial product which i chose to buy and install myself into my gun, replaving the FN OEM 45* cam with the Stryker 90* Navy Cam.

One more, if your selector original come back is in 45 degree, then if you change it to 90 degree, how come to change the marking on the lower?
The lower markings cannot be changed as they are engraved into the lower receiver. So if you install a 90* selector on a lower marker at 45* then you will have to just live with the selector pointing at nothing.

Hope this helps.

As what you said about the evolution, so the military issued of MK17 will have the 90 degree style now?
Coz I have found a lot of images of SF with this kind of selector lever.

Just for about the AR15 style selector only. Need to know did it has military issued now, and when did they start changing to 90 degree?

Ok...... The 90* throw is now standard on the Mk17. When that happened....no idea, but i imagine that it happened after the gun started being deployed around 2010.
