Morning y'all.

This is my first Glock purchase and I'm getting familiar with my firearm. Still have a learning curve to overcome.

While I was re-assembling my Glock 19 after stripping and cleaning it, I believe I improperly set the recoil spring assembly, thus leaving me with a non-functional weapon. I've attached a picture to illustrate the final product.

Can anyone provide some advice as to how to rectify this?

Could it be that the spring is in backwards? If so, check out this Glocktalk thread:

You should be able to find detailed instructions on U Tube on dis-assembly and re-assembly..

Looks like the slide is sitting on top of the front rail. I've seen people do that before. Just take it off and make sure the front rail gets in when you do it again.

I have seen this before. If it is to the point that the slide has come back too far and the firing pin block is now catching you may have to remove the remove the back plate and pull out the slide internals. That will usually clear up the problem the slide should then slide off.
