As some of you Echo1 M240 Bravo owners may already know, there is a bit of a design flaw with the position of the trigger switch inside the gun.
The wires that connect to the switch's contact plates stick out a bit too in the back, making it difficult to install the stock after inserting a battery or putting the gun away for storage or transportation in a case.
When installing the stock onto the back of the gun's receiver, the bottom portion of the stock would catch on the wires attached to the thin, metal contact plates of the trigger switch, causing the plates to bend back & forth, which weakens the metal each time it is bent. Eventually, I broke one of the plates off and had to spring for a whole new trigger switch.
I cut that SOB. I cut it hard...with a Dremel.
I will add that the material I removed is part of a metal adapter on the stock, so while I suppose you could use a hand file set if you didn't have a rotary tool like a Dremel, it will likely take you quite a bit longer to complete this task. Fair warning.
