MY CARRY IN ORDER
Try this way:
- Lean some of your weight down on the pistol so that the slide is pushed back a bit.
- Use your fingernails on your other hand to pull the levers, which should no longer have tension from the slide.
- Lift up the pistol and the weight of the slide will pull it down far enough so that you can release the levers.
- You can now easily remove the slide.
I don't think it can get any easier on your hands than this without a very imaginative tool.
Some models can be tougher than others. With use, it breaks-in like the rest of the parts.
Check topglock.com it appears that they have an extended slide stop available. At $11.45 that's a cheap fix to the problem...have a Glock armor install it.
