Bought a PPK/S 380 went to take it apart to clean per the book and now it is locked up, slide only goes back 3/4 way not allowing slide to lift off frame? Hammer looks to be holding the slide forward and will not fully cock and engage the sear! Pulled grips off and tried to release hammer but nothing seems to work. Anyone else had this problem or know way to do?

If you can, drift out the pin at the lower rear of the grip frame. This will release the frame plug. It will also release the hammer spring tension. Just be careful when you do it, it's quite a load.

If the hammer, or any associated parts, are causing the jam-up this may release tension on the part that is being forced where it's not suppsed to be.

Took it to local gunsmith had it apart in no time (never said how), firing pin block spring out of area keeping block from falling out of place of slide. Shoots great now after he put in a new spring 3 coils longer. Thanks everyone for the help in this glad it's working gun would make a poor paperweight. Thanks all Jerry
