    I've got a disassembly problem that I need help on. I have a G17 that was assembled without the recoil spring assembly. The slide is on but the barrel is forward of the locking block (with a potion of the barrel sticking out the front of the slide). I can't get the barrel back to its proper position. I also can't get the slide fully forward to remove it from the frame. Where do I go from here? I've not seen this before.

    Go on YouTube and type in slide on clock without spring and there is a couple videos on it

    It's easy just push slide into normal battery position and pull the trigger and it should come off

    worst-case if you can slide to slide all the way back and take out the firing pin should be able to slide forward

    Welcome to the forum, I think all or most of us have done this at one time or another. I just had to push with a little bit more force than usual to get the slide forward after I pulled the trigger. Don't apply a great amount of force, if it isn't coming off with a firm nudge then you'll break something if you push any harder.
