rat impulse power button

I got a rat impulse with no power button so I contacted Gog and they sent me a power button. Either this thing needs some astroglide or it's the wrong one. The button doesn't seem like it will fit. Any advice before I grab a hammer?

Oh ****, I was supposed to help you out with this awhile back, my bad man. Anyway, yes, it is an interference (force) fit, so that sounds about right. I noticed it when I tried to take mine out to measure it to remake one for you. Go ahead with a small hammer.

gotcha, Yeah I got one from GOG for $2.00 and was trying to force it in with my finger with no luck, so I'll try a hammer tonight.

Planning to be at Black River with it tomorrow.

gotcha. so update. I have rat0014 and when I got it I got a spare stock matrix body,frame, tray,etc. I took the stock tray with imp041380 and the power button fits down to the lip where I think I could tap it in, but with my rat tray I can't even get any part of the button in. Looks like I'm swapping trays :/

swapped trays and everything worked. I guess I'll have to make the hole bigger on the other tray

Don't use a drill, try a small file. You don't want to removes any more material than you need to

yeah I'll have to look into some options. My little brother ended up using the gun yesterday and he enjoyed it. It was his 2nd time playing and first time using an electro.

I didn't think you could get old school imp parts from them. Wonder what else they have laying around?

I got a short detent and a power button. I've reached out to them multiple times in the past 2-3 years for nerve and impulse parts and have always been able to get what I needed.
