I just got in my tactical empire safety selectors for my 17s and I can not for the life of me get the screws out of the stock safety selectors. They well not budge a hair. Is there a trick to getting them out?
a small flat head screwdriver should do the trick? Also, the little screw only has threads on the top half, the bottom half is a pin so you might be able to use a small punch through the bottom to force it out if you can't get it out with a screwdriver?
I guess I'm repeating others, but if your using those tiny driver that come with cellphone repair kits, don't. Buy a decent driver with multiple bits a the local hardware store(like $20 max) or buy a real nice one online(never stupid to buy a high quality tool). Works much better.
When I replaced my factory trigger on my 17S with a Giessele trigger the hardest part was getting these two small
screws out of the safety lever! They are in really tight and you need a very precise hollow ground screw driver to get
them out without buggering up the heads. One of mine was slightly buggered from the factory!
I have a set of Bownells gunsmith screwdrivers and nothing in the set fit properly. I finally gave up and took an old
small screwdriver and reground the blade for an exact match.
