P22 Laser Site Stuck

I mounted and unmounted my laser site several times, however it is stuck on and cannot figure how to remove it. Any hints?

Welcome Sarni, this has come up before and some folks do have a solution. I don't remember what it is but someone will be along shortly to help you out I bet. M1911

Try RimfireCentral. I know there was discussion regarding this, several threads on it. Seems it has something to do with a small, flat spring of metal breaking that locks the laser on. You have to insert something in there just so to cause it to come loose. M1911

Thanks again for the help.
It's going to S&W for repair. I've been a shooter since six. Armed since 1966 (Thanks LBJ) Shot Master Pistol and Master revolver for 25 years. First fix I couldn't handle. also the first time I have ever damaged or lost front sites. Super glue is in my future.

You should have some extra sight blades with the pistol. Elevation is adjusted with them. They are numbered. Take a close look, there are very small ears on the bottom tangs that must spread out on the underside of the thin slide to hold the sight in place. Still, you can yank one loose and some folks have a problem with the holster they are using pulling them out. I've never lost one myself. S&W will send you replacements for any you loose. M1911

Thanks 1917-1911M.
They're sending sites also. Never had a problem with my 50 year old 1911. I'm not THAT old yet, got it from and older friend.

Ok, so I had this same issue, and I spent a long time trying to find a solution. And maybe someone has said this, but maybe me explain it different will help others.

So as described, I couldnít get my laser off, and I read that the bar that clicks into place breaks in half when using high power .22 ammo (which I feel is an oxymoron). So I read somewhere if you squeazed the two sides together tightly you could slide it down and get off the laser. Apparently my hands or channel locks are not strong enough to do this.

So here is what I did. I have a lock picking kit, which most people wonít have. So what you will need to find is two things that are extremely flat and thin, like the picks in a lock picking set. I slid a pick, on both sides, in between the laser frame and the button. By doing this on both sides, I was able to push down both sides of the release bar and easily remove to laser. It was quite simple and didnít require hands of steal. Also I wonít have to send the whole gun in, just the laser.

I hope this will help someone else.

It would help to add some good, clear pictures of the broken part and some type of description of how the device is supposed to work. Pictures really help clear things up. M1911

I had to pry mine off my P22 today. I am going to switch to my Viridian Green Laser. I do not know at this point what I will do with Walther Laser.

Correct that, Umarex/Walther laser. I have a Umarex laser for my CP99 BB gun. It is built IDENTICAL to the P22 laser, except for the rear fit to the trigger quard. Somehow, the great minds at Umarex thought they can take the CP99 one, make it fit the P22, and make it fit a little tighter(the CP99 is a little loose and actually falls off the first 3 shot or so when a new CO2 cartridge is installed). Although I should not be surprised. After all, that is where Umarex got it's idea for the zinc slide for the P22. I would just about bet someone that the slides of the P22 and CP99 are made in the same factory. :-)
