About the Fox Custom Selector Plate
The function of the selector plate is to interface with the external fire selector on your AEG and tell the gearbox what mode it should be firing in. It does so by mechanically positioning the cutoff lever to the spot that will allow it to fire full auto or semi auto or stop the trigger in safe. Some gearboxes also use the selector plate as an additional contact for a current to go through so you have a hard cutoff for the electricals when you position your fire selector in safe. The contact is a metal piece on the selector plate and can be omitted if your system does not require it. You will typically see it utilized in M4 and AK style gearboxes but maybe in some others as well. You can determine if that contact is needed by looking at the switch assembly and seeing if the wires are routed to additional contacts that would touch the selector plate or if the wires would run a continuous circuit to the motor. Be careful you do not acquire the wrong type of selector plate (such as an all metal one) for a system that uses the selector plate to conduct. You will have a short on your hands.
Though this is a component that rarely breaks, we could see people needing this for their ground up custom builds or to replace selector plates on older guns that have worn out. The selectors on some models utilize gear teeth or cams from the external selector and that metal to plastic contact could eventually wear the selector plate out.

Note: Fox does not warranty or accept returns for parts that have been installed/attempted to be installed.
Note: Due to varying manufacturer tolerances for gearbox internals, parts compatibility no matter what version might NOT fit even if it is supposedly correct and fitment is NOT guaranteed. The reality is that some parts may need fitting and some parts might look the same but the dimensions are slightly different enough to not work. This will require technical experience to identify to overcome.
