I bought a Geissle trigger that I want to install into my early-2000's Bushmaster XM15-E2S, but I have hit a snag. Due, I'm sure, to ban-era legal BS, there is a threaded rod installed in my safety that interferes with the Geissle' disconnect. Incidentally, it also stops me from removing the safety. How can I remove this safety?

It looks like the safety is an old match trigger design from long ago. It looks like you need to flip the safety down and unscrew the rod out of the safety.

There is a very thin pin in the way. Any tips?

Phixeon, you will have to cut off or otherwise remove the threaded rod before removing the selector-sounds like you figured that part out already.

If you want to replace it, I will happily donate a new selector for your project. The selector I give you will be a Colt part, but I can assure you that it will fit just fine in your Bushmaster.

If you want a new one, just shoot me a PM or an e-mail. It's no trouble at all and I'm always happy to help

You'll need to decide if you want the old style selector or the newer elongated version-I have both kinds on-hand.

I really appreciate the offer, but I have another selector here. I'm going to end up taking this to my smith, as I don't trust my own Dremel skills not to mess this up.

Gotcha

Good luck with your new trigger-you're going to LOVE it!

If anything changes unexpectedly and you need the new selector after all, don't hesitate to ask.
