There must be a million posts on this, but none really explaining some contradictions and horror stories. I replaced the factory plastic safety with a factory aluminum from brownells.
Found these do or die steps listed on other posts without explanation.
- Dont use the factory detent plate with the aluminum safety. Install without it. (I did not follow this tip, other posts didnt specify, bad move?)
- Zip tie the trigger. (with safety engaged or after dry firing? I didnt do this either, other posts didnt specify, bad move?)
- Remove trigger group . (I imagine this is to hold onto the block to prevent it from moving around freely once the safety is unscrewed. I didn't do this either, didnt have any issues so far, ami I in for a trouble?)
The new one works but is a bit stiffer than the plastic. Oil helped a bit but it's a noticeable difference. Anyone else have this experience?
