Hoping for better pharmaceuticals

I am building a AR15 pistol for my son. I am looking for a different selector switch that has more of a surface area to get at especially with gloves on. It must be ambidextrous

I am contemplating
Battle Arms
and
Knights Armament

Thoughts on either or is there a better option I just haven't found?

Noveske STS Ambi.

Works great at about 1/2 the price. I have them on all my ARs.

Been using Radian Talon, you get the standard 90° & 45° throw.

Easy to install.

I like the BAD selector. Way too expensive but I’m a lefty and I like a certain combo of lever sizes. They are interchangeable.

I like a selector that’s larger than the standard part, and I’m curious how many of the ones suggested thus far are that much bigger. The photos don’t make it all that clear. The Strike Switch is an obvious exception; how is the front extension used?

Added: Found an answer to the Strike Switch question, and I may have to try one.

After using several different ones, I’ve settled on this one.

Very positive engagement, no slop, and just simply very well made.

Are both levers the same length and width? They look it in the picture.

Guess I should have shown this little gem off a little better. After trying several aftermarket safety selectors over the years I was unimpresse with them for the money they want. Then I ran across the Strike Switch on youtube tried one and was impressed.

I really like Seekins ambi safety. Good quality, affordable, switchable from 90° to 60°.

I've got both the Battle arms and the Knights. The Battle arms is more reconfigurable. the Knight's works just fine, except that the right side selector is a little long for my taste but the right side lever . I was able to configure the battle arms one to my preference.

I appreciate all the responses. I went with two to compare. I'm getting the Strike Switch and Radian Talon and see which I like better. Thanks again.
