I was exchanging the standard barrel on my P99 with the Earl's threaded barrel the other day. When I put the pistol back together, I somehow forgot to put the guide rod/spring into place before adding the barrel and slide to the frame. Yes, I'm an idiot.

I immediately realized what I had done, but couldn't remove the slide. the slide is now positioned about 1/4" back from where it should be on the frame and I cannot remove it, even when pulling fairly hard. Anyone ever heard of this problem? Maybe I'm the first numbnuts to do this....

chrris - exactly right! Thank you!

pow - thanks as well, though I'm glad I didn't have to use a vice or hammer

Phew, I'm glad I knew about this place.
