I just recieved my Imbel standard rifle from Entreprise last week, really nice overall with a couple exceptions, the safety seems VERY stiff (as in sometimes it take 2 hands to move it). I have tried lubricating it , that helped slightly.
It seems the indent spring is WAAAY to heavy as it moves freely after it is out of the indentation.
any suggestions?
thanks.

Rotate the detent ball to re-orient its' travel between stops. Smooth it slightly with sandpaper if neccessary.

Remove the selector from the rifle.

Soak it in CLP (Break-Free) overnight.
