FIREARM: STOCK OEM new Gen 3 G23; 460 rounds; no malfunctions of any kind During a reloading session today, I needed to fire the primer in an UNLOADED case (.40 S&W) -- no powder, no bullet just a live primer. I took an empty G23 magazine, loaded the (empty) cartridge into the mag, inserted magazine, released the slide and eased the case into the chamber. Without a bullet to guide the case, normal slingshotting of the slide wouldn't have worked. Then I fired the "blank" cartridge. The case didn't eject (of course). PROBLEM: Now I can't manually work the slide to eject the case; slide is jammed. I CAN field strip the piece EXCEPT I can't remove the barrel. What do I do? I'm wondering if the under-powered discharge might have resulted in a stuck firing pin which is holding the case in the chamber and freezing the slide. However, I am able to move the striker rearward using my thumb, and that doesn't solve the problem. Well, before I attempt a detailed disassembly of the slide, I thought I'd seek the hive's input. Only my senior years impart that self-control vs getting a crowbar and a neighbor's trailer hitch. Any advice appreciated.
