I only made 10 of each so they ended up being more than I thought. Both are Stainless Steel 316L with black oxide finish. The safety drums are pretty tight and might have to be fitted to the radian lever (take a bit off the outside edges of the dovetail). The safety drums *don’t* come with levers.

Detent lever asking $85 shipped.
Safety drum asking $75 shipped.

These are not toys. Remember to use safe handling and operating practices at all times when installing and using these parts. Remember that the ACR lower is not marked for a 45 degree lever so this means the firearm will fire at 45 degrees even though it is technically safe by the engraving marked “safe”. WEAPON SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

A bit more on fitting the levers.

As you can see here the levers are pretty tight. I went off a pair of levers I had and didn’t want them to be too loose.



This is what needs to be fitted. Same areas on both sides. 4 sides total.


Once you do that they should go in nice and easy. Cerakoted levers might need a bit more, but if you have fitted something like 1911 safeties this should be extra easy.

1 lever left. It was used to test this lot. Installed it on my ACR and actuated the safety about 50 times so technically it is used.
2 safety drums left. Both were used to test levers. One has black radian levers, the other has FDE radian levers (Long and short). So they have been fitted already. So you are getting the levers and the springs for free. ;)

Just fitted the levers and installed the safety. HUGE improvement over the original and the Radian lever compatibility is a big plus.

I only made prototypes for the Radian and the BAD levers. Ended up going with the Radian just because they are a bit more popular it seems.

Haven’t had a whole lot of exposure to the Geissele ones except for the ones I had and replaced on my Super Duty. Doesn’t loom too hard to get working. Basic shape and threads.

Please put me down for a couple if you ever decide to get some cores made that works with the Geissele dog-leg lever. Just the 90 degree core, I already have the levers.

Got 25 drums and 10 detent levers this time around. Better fit on the dovetails compared to Gen 1.

25 drums left.
9 detent levers left.

This is beautiful work; thanks for offering them! Are the drums a drop-in item that is compatible with the stock ACR lever? Am I reading correctly that you must still use the drum as a 90-degree safety, or you can convert to 45 but have to recognize the lower isn't marked for that (obviously)?
