■ Hold the pistol in either hand so that four fingers grasp the top of the slide as shown (Fig. 7). With these four fingers, pull and hold the slide back approximately 1/10 inch (2.5mm).
NOTE: The trigger has to be in the rear position to be able to disassemble the slide from the receiver.
Simultaneously, pull down the slide lock (part no. 21) and hold both sides of it using the thumb and index finger of your free hand (Fig. 8).
Pull down and hold
