Dont wanna sound like a moron here, but can someone tell me how to remove the selector switch from my AR? The gun is fully assembled and I dont know much about AR's currently.

Don't feel bad. Folks here are used to seeing stories of me trying to do something with a firearm and ending up carrying a sack of gun parts to a gunsmith to put it back together.

Basicly you have to remove the pistol grip being carefull to catch the spring and plunger that the selector switch ride on. Then just press out the selector switch.

Guess I should've elaborated. :) There are two steps in that assembly write-up I posted pertaining to the selector. As Coastie mentioned, the selector is actually just held in place by the detent/spring which is held in place by the pistol grip.

There's another similar detent at the rear of the lower receiver that keeps the rear take-down pin in place. This detent is held in place by the butt stock, so keep this in mind if you ever remove the stock. Another detent (which I've never messed with) holds the front take-down pin in place, but you generally won't be doing anything that'd let you accidentally lose that one.

i always slip it halfway between fire and safe and tap it out with a dowl or plastic punch to reinstall hold down the detent with a small punch and push it back through.

and never again worry about losing the springs or the detents. One the safety one, tho, have to shorten the detent and its spring, to make room for the setscrew. I notch the right side of the safety, so that I can just reach in with a knife tip, depress the plunger, and remove the safety. To hell with that removal and replacement of the pistol grip, just to remove the safety.
