Question Gunsmiths in santa clara area help with ambi safety issue

I installed a new timmney trigger on my first ar build last night and a defense package branded ambi safety (yes I know I did go cheap on this one). Problem is with the ambi selector not "clicking" when going from safe to semi and it actually goes from left and all the way to the right (burst mode) but when on burst mode, I cannot pull the trigger (not that this is my intention).

When I move the selector switch, it is very rough and it seems kinda tight. Not sure what I did wrong or what the issue ia as I tried numerous times to uninstall and install the trigger and safety selector back with the same results.

Trigger is fine, the problem is on the safety selector switch. Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you lost the safety detent (that is what makes it click). For the tight fit just some light sanding (400 grit or higher) should take off enough to get it to move freely, either that or just using it a bunch.

Safety detent is in place, but I will double check tomorrow. Thanks!

Did you install the selector so that the detent notches are on the same side of the receiver as the selector detent?
