I have seen plenty of p90 selectors for sale... I want one for looks on my sbr. Hammer pack is gen 3. Can I put the selector on and be ok with no ill effects? Tried to search for the answer but couldn't find it.

I checked... looks pretty old though and they are only two position selectors. I am looking for one the will select all three.
As long as the pack is not tampered with you only need two positions, and those have the three markings.

The one in the link PersuitSS linked makes a very nice looking safety switch. It defo fits the bill for looks and doesn't cost $100.

Aside from that, if you must have one that can move to all three positions (it will only be semi auto just like said already), you will have to order the $100 one.
Nobody makes an aftermarket one that can move to all three positions.

The best mod that gets you closest to looking like a P90 is to pay the Form1 tax stamp and SBR it.
You will enjoy that look much more than a three position safety switch

I once talked to the ATF about using an M16 BC in my AR.

They were very polite and helpful. The law is that the rifle may not fire more than 1 shot per trigger pull. As long as it doesn't, you are reasonably good to go. However:

1. They discourage you to have auto parts in there on the basis that a failure of a part that makes you full auto leaves you with an illegal weapon. The rationale is that the fewer auto parts you have, the less likely of having an accidental full auto. This was advice, not the law.
2. Looking like full auto can draw a lot of extra attention that you may not want.
3. The exact basis for interpretation is beyond me, but if you are semi auto, but just barely, and the conversion is easy, there is something called 'constructive intent', where you get busted for looking like you intended to go there.

Don't take this as legal advice.

Mine is an sbr... that is why I want the look of the 3 position selector. The one for sale in the thread for 45.00. Doesn't appear to be available anymore? I don't mind paying the 100.00 and nothing in the trigger pack has or will ever be messed with. I don't see where the intent onaling it full auto would be if I don't posses all the necessary parts and the gun only fires in semi auto.

Gen 3 trigger(hammer) pack is semisuto only.
So are the Gen 1 and 2 packs.
All trigger pack generations offered on all PS90s will only work in semisuto mode.
You are okay with a Gen 3 pack

That is all I will say because the rules of this website is very clear:
any talk of making a firearm that breaks existing laws is prohibited.

While I would like one or two for myself, $100 for a $5 part is too ritzy for my blood.
Yeah it was a bit pricey for me also, but I wanted to build this as real looking as possible... even better that will actually switch to and function in the A setting, even though it is only semi auto :(

It's your rifle and is completely legal but, I have to agree with the individuals that it draws unwanted attention. I can attest to the unwanted attention part. I went to my local range with my HK UMP conversion with full auto lower(It was semi though) and the owner was a former police officer and I wound up spending an hour explaining how it was legal and showing him parts diagrams on my iPhone. PITA. Luckily I was able to get a FBI lower (Sage/Semi) and sold the other one. Though the P90 F/A selector is not really seen like a black HK UMP with bright red bullets.
