Okay. On this 9mm semi automatic, on this
weapon system there’s a tad bit difference in the way that it is taken apart or disassembled.
Some of them have a lever that slides down like the 40 caliber in my last series. This
one doesn’t have that. This one here is more of a line up type of attitude. If you notice
on this side of the slide catch, you have a pin here, which is part of the slide catch.
What’s needed in order to take this weapon apart is first again, make sure the weapon
is clear and safe, release, decock it. What I’m going to do is start slightly pulling
the slide to the rear until I get to a certain point where I can push that little tab and
it starts just to come out. Once I remove that pin, I place it there and just like before
I remove the slide from the lower receiver. As we look at this, there’s not much difference
in the 40 caliber with the guide rod and spring and the barrel and the slide as to the lower
receiver of this firearm. The difference is the way it was taken down. Instead of turning
it down and pulling the slide to the rear and releasing it, this one here you have to
push from the opposite side to get it started, but the weapon has to be at a certain point
in order to relieve the pressure off of it to be able to remove it. That there is how
you disassemble this particular style of 9 mm semi automatic handgun.
