I have a Taurus PT 101 P .40 Cal that the slide is stuck. It will not come off, nor will it lock back or function as it is supposed to. I tried rotating the pin that locks it into place, pulling the trigger and moving the slide both forward and backward with no movement what so ever. Its really frustrating and any help would be greatly appreciated.

And if it is, you may have a broken locking block. Which will nessitate a trip to Miami. On your dime, but the fix should be free.

Magazine is out. I managed to get the slide off by taking off the pistol grips, removing the trigger bar and trigger bar spring and pushing up on a detent on the inside of the slide via the magazine well. Once i pulled the slide off a nice size chip of metal came out. Still trying to see where it came from.

That piece of metal was probably what was causing the problem.
