    Locked up G23 with a G35 barrel

    Did something very stupid...had both G35 and G23 broken down and cleaning. I wanted to see what the 35 barrel would look like on the 23 slide & frame. Of course the gun is locked up now and I cannot get the slide to more forward to release off of the lower receiver. I have to keep the trigger pulled get the slide to move at all, but it's hung-up on something and will not go forward enough to release the slide from the receiver. HELP?

    The slide has to move backwards to get the slide lock to release the slide. I am guessing because I can't see what you did but have you tried to take the trigger pin out to release the pressure on the underside of the slide. I can only assume it is the trigger bar stopping the slide from moving

    Got it...had to remove the rear slide plate, release the firing pin, then the whole slide slid forward and off the lower. I'm thinking I did not have the spring on the bottom notch before I assembled.
    Thanks for the reply.

    In my case (no spring inside), I could move the slide backwards just enough to reach the spacer sleeve & take pressure off the cover plate.

    In class, the instructor showed us a way to remove the plate from the back using one of the openings. I haven't tried it, but it looked like a handy trick.

    Had an issue with mine one day and had to do the same thing. It's easy as long as you can get to the sleeve.

    I can see that this would be possible through the whole to the right (looking at the gun from the rear) but this would take a specialized tool or made one that was extremely strong and very small bend at the tip. I know they sell a half plate so you can work on the insides with the gun assembled.

    You mentioned the spring assembly not being in the gun. Without it the gun won't disassemble the regular way? Mine won't go together unless the spring is in the proper place and have never had the pleasure of putting it together without the spring
