P99 Reassembly Issue - Please Help

990 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ShipWreck
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....

Is it possible to move the slide back? Is it unloaded?

If you're a 1/4 in back, you may be engaging the cocking assembly. It won't disassemble while cocked. If you could cycle it back and then decock or pull the trigger. Then try to tear down.
