We show that the rank $ r$ component of the free idempotent generated semigroup of the biordered set of the full linear semigroup full of $ n \times n$ matrices over a division ring $ Q$ has maximal subgroup isomorphic to the general linear group $ GL_r(Q)$, where $ n$ and $ r$ are positive integers with $ r < n/3$.
