Yeah, that's exactly what I do, something is stuckSpringfield Armory EMP 1911 Field Strip - Bing video
Here's a video of how to do it. Maybe you're not doing something correctly. Hopefully that's it.
CorrectYou are saying with the slide stop removed, which is the only thing holding the slide in place the slide will not move. Press the trigger and see what happens.
I'm able to remove the slide stopCan you be a little more specific. Will it move into the position where it allows you to take the slide stop out and then it won't come off or will it not move at all?
With the slide stop in will the slide move back and lock with an empty mag installed and then properly release? Can you rack the slide with a round in the chamber and rounds in the mag and it ejects and reloads properly?
It breaks down just like my EMP 4 Lightweight Champion with the exception of that half round takedown piece. On mine a small allen type metal tool is placed in a hole to relieve the spring tension.I just watched this one and not sure if will help does a good job and shows it up close
Yep, made sure the mag was outIt breaks down just like my EMP 4 Lightweight Champion with the exception of that half round takedown piece. On mine a small allen type metal tool is placed in a hole to relieve the spring tension.
Since your gun seems to work properly otherwise, not sure what would keep the slide from coming off once the slide stop is removed unless maybe you haven't taken the mag out. Be interested to see what Springfield says.
