Make sure your locking block is seated all the way in the frame, insert the locking block pin from R-L. Insert your SSL, insert your trigger pin from R-L. You may have to push the SSL forward a little so the hole lines up with the trigger pin. The pin should slide right in.

Ok I'll try it if that don't work then what
Just look through the holes in your frame. You should be able to tell what is not lined up. I am assuming you just removed the two pins and the old SSL and everything is in the gun correctly. The only things that could not lined up are: locking block (push it down), trigger (look through the hole and line it up before putting in the SSL if necessary, and finally the SSL itself (when you put it in and look through the hole, line it up and put the trigger pin in).

Make sure to put the top pin in FIRST

Put the top pin in first, the insert the slide lock lever. When installing the bottom pin, wiggle the slide lock lever around, pin should push right in.

Have you tried jiggling the slide release up and down while pushing in the pin?

Did you put them in the opposite way you took them out?

I hope you are not using a hammer. If you can't work it out by hand, I would either find an armorer in your area...or post your location here and hopefully there is someone local who can help you out. There is only one way to do it as described by Birddog and I above. The items I listed above are the only things that could *possibly* be not lined up. I just hope you weren't using a hammer and have it jammed in the frame cockeyed. The reason you need to put the top pin in first is because the spring on the SSL MUST be underneath it. It is impossible if you put the bottom (trigger pin) in first.

I think you'll be fine...your just unfamiliar with your weapon right now. You'll get it straightened out and learn from it.

Before you ruin an expensive weapon and maybe hurt yourself in the process, go to www.Glockstore.com and get Lenny Magills DVD, "The Complete Glock". It's excellent.
