Disassembled my Mini 30 to change gas block and trigger spring. Slapped the broken down receiver in my new Hogue stock and stuck the trigger assembly in to see how it looks. Wrong move as I can’t get the trigger assembly out. I can’t function when I’m tired and sleepy!

If the hammer is now in the cocked position I can't really see why it won't come out. Try squeezing the receiver to the stock while trying to remove the trigger assembly.

Did you force it together?

Safety also has to be ON also!
Cocked and locked. Stick a small screw driver in the hole of the trigger
guard and gently push forward and it should lift and come free.

I can’t move the safety at all. I’ve also tried a lot of force and the trigger assembly won’t move.

Not trying to de-rail the conversation, but does anyone else see the huge gap between OEM Ruger handguard and the forward edge of the receiver?

There should be 1/16" gap instead of the 1/2" gap pictured.

Just making an observation.

Something's very unusual here, IMHO.
That's only noticeable because there is no charging handle in the weapon...

OK I see the trigger guard is not seated looks like it is not fully engaged.
tap it in then try to engage the safety. If that does not work try tapping the safety
with a rubber mallet the stock may be tight or have excess material keeping the
safety from moving.

Here you go. This is also as far as the trigger guard will open.

I can close the trigger guard but safety won’t move, although I haven’t tried hitting it with rubber mallet. In the pic showing the trigger guard open that’s as far as it will open. I’ll bang on it when I get home.

Yes. Disregard my previous comments on this particular subject.

Going by the pix you just supplied, you don't appear to have reached inside and cocked the hammer. Do this first before attempting to engage the safety. You may need to re-latch the trigger guard to do both of these things.

Once hammer has been manually cocked, and the safety engaged, then un-latch the trigger guard, swing the trigger guard as open as possible, and then remove the trigger group.

I’ve tried that multiple times. Doesn’t work.
