Remove the Slide Cover Plate - be sure to keep thumb over the spring loaded bearing and firing pin spacer sleeve so they don't go flying across the room. Then remove the firing pin and extractor assemblys. Now you should be able to remove the slide. Also, check to make sure the end of the slide release spring is resting under (not over) the locking block pin. Did you happen to put the slide on without the barrel and recoil spring? This would cause the slide to lock.
