To dismount barrel
and slide: Remove magazine. Press in grip
safety and cock the arm by drawing back the slide,
(be sure to look and see that no cartridge remains in
the chamber.) Then, holding the pistol as
illustrated, move slide to rear in manner shown until
the arrow indicator reaches the position indicated. (The
perpendicular line on the slide at the arrow point
should coincide with the front edge of the frame). Turn
the barrel to the left as far as it will go. The slide
(with barrel) may then be drawn forward from the
receiver. The retractor spring and guide are then free.
If it is desired to remove the barrel from the slide,
turn the barrel back to first position; it may then be
drawn forward and removed.
To dismount barrel without
removing the slide: Proceed as above; after turning
barrel to left, release slide slowly to normal position,
then turn barrel to right (original position) and pull
To remove firing pin: The firing pin can be
removed by driving the pin out of the
slide with a concave punch. The firing pin assembly
should come out of the rear of the firing pin housing.
To disassemble the magazine: The magazine can
be disassembled by depressing the follower about an inch
and a half with a pencil (eraser end) and then inserting
an unbent paperclip into one of the side viewing holes
to hold the tension of the spring. The follower should
drop out the top and the tension of the spring can then
be carefully released.
