I can remove the selector without a problem but putting it back is something else.
The pin retainer is aligned and I can insert vertically but am unable to rotate into place. I have done it but I don't know how I did it. What is the trick to this? The lower has a FSE group installed. I have here and elsewhere for instructions/manuals but no joy.

Thanks,

try tilting the trigger sear out of the way.

Are you using a metric hammer spring assembly?

push selector flushed against lower then turn.

Never seen an inch but the locking plate not quite aligned can keep it in a bind

It is an inch hammer spring. I'll try rotating a bit more firmly but I didn't want to gall the edge of the sear. The lever is aligned and the pins don't move.

I think I have stumbled on the trick with the selector. It's been a long time since
I worked with it.
