It seems the barrel hole in the hood is too narrow to allow the barrel to rotate up and out of the slide without binding.

    I recommended she call CS and send it in but it's a shame to have that kind of issue right out of the box. No rounds fired and I lubed it up pretty liberally to no avail. Anyone ever heard of this?
    WELL, so much for that attempt to look all knowledgeable and such!!!
    try to find someone that can reassemble a Ruger MK I -II-III and they can get you into business!

    yea, MY 2 Tanfoglio Elite Match the barrels fit so snug and tight that you must rotate them to just the right spot where they will clear the frame, but none of my others are like that.
    pull them straight back and clunk--clunk-clunk--took me a good looky see and tries before I figured it out.
    same way putting them back in.

    My apologies to you and my PT92's - it is my PT24/7 PRO DS LS that has the barrel remove/insert problem. The solution is correctly stated, just wrong pistol. Had a senior moment!!

    Today I bought a new G2C and after I read the manual I dissassembled it to clean it and lube it . When I went to put it back together according the manual the barrel and slide locked up . The slide does not go back far enough to lock it open. I have tried everything that I know of , but it is stuck and the slide won't go forward and it won't go back . I have not put a single round through it I don't know if it is the guide rod , or what it is . Any info on the subject would be appricated.

    If when assembling the gun you placed the rear end of the recoil spring assembly on the bottom step at the front of the chamber (closest step to the barrel), the gun will absolutely lock up. If you pound the butt on a firm surface, you may be able to dislodge the spring. But that error will take force.

    Thanks for the tip. When you say "pound the butt" are you saying the back of the slide , or the bottom of the grip where the mag goes in ?

    The bottom of the grip. You have to try to knock the spring off that first step. It's not as secure as it would be on the bottom step, so it's possible to knock it down.
