If you have an AMMO/SPARES selector switch on your gun, you might want to check out our article on how to turn it off.
The switch is a standard feature of the modern AR-15 platform, and it works the same way as the one you’d find on your AR-10 rifle.
To turn it on, simply pull the trigger, and the selector switch will go away.
This is an important part of a gun owner’s training.
If you don’t like having a selector switch with you on your firearm, you should probably consider a different selector switch.
Here’s how to do it.
How to turn off an AMPO/SPARC selector switch: Remove the magazine catch.
If the magazine catches are on, then you can remove the trigger and remove the selector lever.
If they are on but the trigger is still attached, the selector is still working.
The selector lever will not be removed unless you pull the hammer back.
If you have a stock or pistol grip, then remove the grip and remove both the selector and bolt catch.
If the selector isn’t on, remove the mag catch and remove it as well.
If it’s not on, pull the magazine out of the gun.
If there’s no magazine catch, pull it out.
Pull the bolt catch off of the selector.
If it’s attached to the selector, remove it.
If not, remove and reinsert the bolt.
Remove the selector from the selector bolt.
If attached, remove bolt.
Pull the bolt out of both the bolt and selector.
Remove both selector and selector bolt from the bolt carrier.
Remove all of the components from the trigger guard, trigger, mag catch, and bolt.
You can remove these components by hand if you prefer.
Remove a piece of the trigger that’s attached, as well as the selector/bolt catch and the trigger assembly.
The trigger is now detached and you’re ready to remove the bolt assembly from the barrel.
The bolt is now removed and the magazine is removed.
Remove the bolt from your rifle.
If necessary, reattach the magazine to the rifle.
Remove any remaining components from your AR.
You’ll need to reassemble the barrel to reattach it.
Remove most of the other components from a gun, including the bolt, magazine, and receiver.
You should be done with this process.
There’s one final step before you can finish the job.
Remove your trigger guard.
If needed, replace it.
If your selector isn�t working, then pull the slide release back and remove a piece.
You will need to remove this piece from the slide to get the selector working again.
Remove your magazine catch and extract the mag from the magazine housing.
Reassemble your rifle and remove any remaining parts from your firearm.
Remove everything from the receiver.
This includes the trigger housing, the magazine, the receiver, and all the components.
You�ll need to replace the trigger to get it working again (this is not required).
You�ll now have a fully functional rifle.
The only thing left to do is take it to the range.
You need to take the safety off before you start firing.
The trigger is attached to a spring loaded pin located in the magazine release.
To make the trigger work, you need to pull the pin, which pulls the trigger out of a metal housing on the trigger group.
Pull off the trigger.
The spring will snap back on and the pin will disengage from the spring.
This process can be repeated as many times as you want until you’re satisfied that the trigger works properly.
