    Ok, so something is seriously screwed up here. I put a smooth face trigger in my G26 today. This includes the trigger and bar assembly. After things were put together, I noticed that the trigger didnt have the normal play to it. However, I thought that this may be because the slide wasnt on the frame yet.

    My issue: The trigger will not move a bit. The slide is now on, and the trigger is in the forward position. I cant move the trigger, so now I cant remove the slide from the frame. So, I tried removing the back cover plate. That's off, along with the extractor and firing pin stuff. The slide is still stuck to the frame.

    What gives? Is there something Im missing, or does this mean a trip to Glock?

    Thanks!

    Check the GATE Glock forum. He posted a video on how to release a locked slide.

    Do over. Where did the smooth face come from?

    Thanks for the help. The smooth trigger came out of a gen 3 G22, or so I was told. I somehow highly doubt this now.

    I ended up getting the slide off, but im still not sure of what the hang up was though. Ill watch the video next.

    Thanks again!

    That trigger bar is correct.

    The video only covers the removal of a stuck slide.

    Completely remove the trigger bar again, and do over again-- if it still does not work, then sumpin's up. Consider going back to stock.
