After cleaning my weapon, I put the slide on and when I slid it bac, it stuck open with the barrel and spring holder sticking out the front about 2 inches. Help!!

How do I fix this.

Thank you

Did it rack all the way back?

Did you get the slide release back in?

Sounds like the guide rod was off center when you reassembled. It's actually fairly common on the P-series, so I have found.

If that is the case, and you can't bring the slide forward, the ejector is probably back in the "up" position. Reach through the mag-well with a dental pick or bent hanger/wire to pull it back down. The slide should come free and slide forward.

Good Luck!

Did the ejector pop up when you reassembled it??
If so, reach up into the mag well and pull it down/remove the slide and make sure it's down all the way. Reassembl,e being careful the [email protected] ejector don't pop up again! :mrgreen:
