Yeah, its pretty much impossible without using the release catch-reslide-engage catch method. Or using tools.BadAndy said:I have to use the pliers on my multi-tool to get that stupid take down lever out. It would have been nicer if they used a system that doesn't require removal of a piece like that.
You pull the slide back and lock it. Then you pull the takedown pin loose. Pull the slide back to release the catch and guide it forward about a half inch, then pull it back and re-engage the slide catch. Then you can wriggle the pin out.VA Caver said:OK, so what is the "release catch-reslide-engage catch method"?
