My CCP was a Christmas gift yesterday. I field stripped it this morning using the tool and everything went fine. However I failed to use the tool to reassemble the slide and now the slide is stuck and I've spent several hours trying to get it to either come back off or slide fully forward. I'm stuck and so is my slide. I'd rather figure this out with your help than send it into Walther. any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I suspect the locking catch is caught behind the counter plate and the striker spring is hung on the front side. My procedure was to use the small screwdriver (never use Walthers plastic part) which allows the locking catch to be pressed up and in to a greater depth. That would move the locking catch to the "normal" release position in front of the counter plate and drive the striker spring forward of the plate as well.

You pulled the slide back too far. A common mistake. Pull the slide back until it is just about flush with the frame as pictured in the manual, insert tool, and press down on the slide. It'll snap right into place. I, too, did this being used to slides that must be pulled all the way back to align. I don't think the screw driver will help, but I'd give Chandler's advice a try. As for me, I just wrestled with it and it eventually came free. Then I checked the manual and saw I was pulling the slide back WAY too far. Another issue is that being a new gun everything is a bit tight. Let us know how you make out.

Oh, by the way, once you get it back together have fun. It's a great gun with great feel, good accuracy, although it does get a bit warm if you put a lot of rounds through it. Of my four Walthers, this is my fave.

Finally some success! I managed, with some assistance, to get the locking catch to launch across the room. After this I was able to get the slide off with the tool. I've field stripped it several times and assembled it each time without any issues. Jzami69 is correct in that I was moving the slide too far back. I just had to make sure the rear of the slide is flush with receiver.

Thanks guys!

I was surprised at just how little the slide needs to be moved to remove and assemble it. I fought it for awhile before I realized the more I moved it the harder it got.

Yep I ran in to this issue after the first re-assembly a few hours ago, after the g/f bought her CCP. Finally figured out that you need to rotate the locking catch to a point where it comes out. That allows the slide to close and then you can finagle the spring out of there. Then remove the slide and put the spring back in there, followed by inserting the locking catch. Then you're GTG. This gave me some fits for way to long lol.

People!!! You really need to look at the tear down video that I posted and is a sticky... It would have saved you a ton of wasted effort.

I realize this post is closing on a year old, but wanted to thank you all. I got a CCP last weekend, and ran into this problem about an hour ago. What i found, by using clues in this thread, was that a quarter turn of the locking cap to the right allowed it to eject from the slide. From there, i could remove the spring from the obstruction and the get the slide unstuck.

Damn, I'm glad i didn't have to send my new boomer back to Walther.

This just happened to me... I was not able to push the locking catch in at all and had to remove it as per the instructions above then take off slide and reinsert spring and locking catch being careful not to bring the slide too far back as I did the first time which caused the issue in the first place.

So this happened to me a few months ago, and I took it back to the gun shop. When I got it back I did not inspect it other than to check the slide and make sure everything moved again. A few months later (I know, I don't get to the range often enough) I put about 100 rounds through it and went home to tear it down, inspect, and clean it.

When I did this, the whole locking catch and spring assembly came right out! Upon inspection I see that the #49 roll pin that locks in the catch assembly is COMPLETELY GONE.

So my question is... Do I return it to the shop and say fix it! (I'm hesitant to do this now as they seem to be ham-fisted), or do I return it to Walther for the recall that needs to be done and have them fix it?

Thanks!

P.S. No, I didn't think to look here first before going to my gun shop. :-(

Are you sure it's gone and not just backed into the slide (also a concern but at least then it isn't lost)? If it's truly gone gone, I'd call or email Walther. They've been extremely helpful replacing parts for me, even replacing the catch more than once (I think they realized the design is... less than ideal)

There was "part" of it still in there. Not entirely sure just how long it was but it certainly didn't appear to be whole.

I sent it in for the recall and will let them handle this matter now too!

Thank you for your reply!

Was just about to send my CCP in to Walther for this very problem. Never had a chance to shoot it. It was so dirty from the factory that I just had to clean it first. The above bold text is the key for my stupidity.

Now I can go to the range tomorrow with my brand new today PPK/S.

Well no one has posted on here in years here is to hoping so.eone responds.

I got the locking cap to eject and now the spring is sticking out the back. And I've got no idea how to finish fixing the slide.
