I attempted to field strip my pistol and noticed that I am unable to get the slide stop pin out of the reciever to take off the slide? This thing is solid and wont budge. I don't want to damage the gun but dang how do I get this thing out? Esox357.

did you take the mag out?

if the mag is out, then try pushing on the slide stop pin from the right side of the gun with something soft and pointy so you wont scratch the gun

are you also pulling the slide back to the 1/2 moon cutout to get the slide stop out?

Yep mag is out, pushing from right side to left, and the slide stop is in the cutout for the slide stop. No dice. I put patches over the pin and used a metal rod to push it against the slide stop pin. No luck yet.

Then your gun is broke man!! That sounds very strange and have never heard anything like it before. You might need to take it to a smith or send it back to smith.

I finally got it. I need better instructions. I was trying to remove the slide pin through the slide lock which wasn't far enough back. I had to pull it to the "half moon" cut which I didn't notice until after the fact. I got it cleaned finally put it back together. Forgive a Glock guy. Thanks for the help guys.

Easiest way is to always turn the bushing and take the recoil spring plug out first, so the recoil spring can relax. This way you're not fighting against the recoil spring when you align the slidestop pin.

I used to do this, but recently have been removing Slide Stop first. The bushing's on 2 of my 1911's are almost impossible to turn while the gun is still together

if the bushing can be turned by hand (w/o a bushing wrench) i usually remove the bushing this way

now with my 2 1911's that need a bushing wrench (TGO-1 and Custom Shop TRP), i pull the slide off, remove the guide rod, slide the barrel out of battery, then remove the bushing.
