Fox Custom Safety Lever - Reliable Replacement for Gearbox

The Fox Custom Safety Lever, a dependable component for gearbox functionality, is no longer available in our inventory. However, there are numerous exceptional options on the market to cater to your airsoft gearbox needs. In particular, if you're in search of reliable internal parts for your airsoft electric gun, we recommend exploring our wide range of airsoft electric gun internal gearbox parts.

The Fox Custom Safety Lever, designed as a replacement for version 2 gearboxes, served as an essential component for fixing broken internal safeties or constructing custom gearboxes from scratch. It's important to note that different gearboxes, such as those found in MP5s, utilize distinct safety levers and gearbox shells. However, approximately 95% of the components remain standard version 2, highlighting an idiosyncrasy within the gearbox realm. As an aspiring airsoft tech, it's crucial to thoroughly research and ensure compatibility before purchasing specific parts. Another common gearbox type, version 3, is typically found in AK and G36 style guns. In V3 guns, the trigger blocking functions are performed by the trigger pieces, rendering safety levers unnecessary. The channel for the safety lever is a round hole, which may require slight filing or modification for a tighter fit on certain gearbox brands. Please be aware that Fox Airsoft cannot be held liable for any issues arising from your modifications or installation work.

The safety lever plays a crucial role within the gearbox by interacting with the selector plate and trigger. When the fire selector on the gun is moved, it engages with the internal selector plate, which in turn moves the safety lever. When the gun is in the safe position, a part of the lever physically blocks the trigger, preventing accidental firing. Although this part rarely breaks, it's not entirely immune to damage.

Fox Custom is our subsidiary brand, offering high-quality precision-manufactured parts specifically designed to deliver exceptional performance and ensure a long service life. We incorporate these parts into our custom builds and recommend them for repair work and upgrades. The Fox Custom Safety Lever exemplified our commitment to quality and reliability.

If you require assistance or consultation regarding repairs, please don't hesitate to contact us at (888)316-7816 or via email at While we only offer tech work to our local walk-in customers, we're more than happy to provide guidance and point you in the right direction. Our senior staff and owners have over 15 years of experience in airsoft and are certified and authorized by several major manufacturers to perform OEM-quality repair and warranty work.

Please note that Fox does not provide a warranty or accept returns for parts that have been installed or attempted to be installed. We recommend seeking technical expertise and exercising caution during any modifications or installations to ensure proper functionality and prevent potential issues.

Due to varying manufacturer tolerances for gearbox internals, compatibility cannot be guaranteed even when using supposedly correct parts for specific versions. While some parts may require fitting, others may appear similar but have slight dimensional differences that prevent proper function. Identifying and overcoming these challenges may require technical experience.
