    stolen from: https://forums.gunboards.com/showthr...-Slide-removal

    "it can be a little tricky the first time but once u get it, its really quite easy. Remove the magazine and put the striker in the fired position. then while holding the latch up, push the slide back about .5 to .75 of an inch until it engages the striker guide on the inside. Then while keeping the latch engaged to the striker guide inside, let the slide come forward about .25 of an inch. This disengages the striker guide from its latch on the frame. Then lift the rear of the slide up and u can remove it in a forward direction. be careful not to loose the striker guide as it may pop off its spring"

    A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.

    There is an easier way. Sell it to me and help him pick out a new gun.

    Old school fractions.
    Remove the magazine and put the striker in the fired position. then while holding the latch up, push the slide back about 1/2 an inch until it engages the striker guide on the inside. keep the latch engaged to the striker guide inside, let the slide come forward about 1//4 inch. This disengages the striker guide from its latch on the frame. Lift the rear of the slide up. You can remove it in a forward direction. The striker guide may pop off its spring. Don't lose it.

    This sounds like a job best done with one's hands inside of a large plastic bag to contain potential errant parts.

    Nothing like hunting all over the garage floor for a lost whatchamacallit. In amongst the sawdust, between the reloading bench and the garden tools.. Sounds like YOU have done it, too, CB. (They oughta start a club for guys like us who have had the ex0erience)

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    Hey Guy's thanks for all the input it really did the trick. it doesn't get any better than having friends sharing their knowledge I would never have figured it out.
    I know for a fact that it hasn't been apart in at least 37 years and there is a good chance it has never been apart after leaving the factory. It don't see a lot of use he still has the box of ammo he bought with the gun with over half the box still left but I'll fix that. He has a 44-40 I have been bugging him to let me shoot since 1995 I finally got my hands on it last fall its a shooter he dont like to shoot guns he has to buy ammo for but he'll shoot the dickens out of my free 9mm reloads, the thing is he has more money than Scrooge and thats why
    THANKS AGAIN I think I got it
