    I have had S&W handguns with easily removeable sideplates, and also a few with sideplates that were quite difficult to remove. A couple of the easy ones would literally fall off with the first light tap of my hand on the grip frame area. Other have taken much patient tapping with a rubber mallet. Someone not knowing better might try prying, which can quickly "spring" a sideplate, or damage internal parts if the tool gets against them. FWIW, a local S&W armorer showed me how to remove a sideplate; there may be videos that show it nowadays.

    I haven't seen any videos, but expect they may very well exist. I know exactly what you mean by sticky side plates!

    I opened up my wife's 642 last week before we went shooting. Sprayed some cleaner in there and let it dry. Then put a little lube on moving parts and it smoothed it up a lot. Almost as good as having a trigger job done.

    Also noticed there were tiny little bits of metal floating around in there.

    It just like in most car engines, metal rubs against metal and get worn down.

    That is why your trigger usually improves after your fire a gun a few hundred times.
