Pic: HAO

I received an enigmatic pic from HAO earlier today. Enigmatic, because it was just a pic with no explanation.

However, the pic was clearly that of an AR-style PTW fire selector and that selector was clearly a bit different to the normal M4 type.

That’s because it’s for an L119A2.

I’ve since been told by two sources that the ‘S’ stands for Schmid Tool, which is Colt Canada’s OEM for CNC lower parts.

And there was me thinking ‘S’ was for safe…


Looks like things are going well on the forthcoming HAO L119A2 lower, which will complement their recently released IUR.

Catch up on the HAO L119A2 IUR series here.
