    Don't ask why, curiosity killed the cat.... I tried to put my glock 21 barrel in my glock 30 just to see if i could do it and now its stuck. The slide won't go into battery and i cannot take it back apart.....

    help?

    Try using a rubber mallet as a last resort. If Glocks are s tough as people say they are, then no harm done. Well... no more harm then already done.

    Looks like the 21 and the 30 are out of commission until I can get to a gun smith

    if you can pull the slide back far enough you can take the internals of the upper apart and get the slide off that way... just take the slide apart just like you do when its off the gun

    Stick a pencil in the barrel to keep it lined up with the hole in the front of the slide. Then take down as normal.

    remove your slide lock lever and put downward force on the end of your barrel as you try to field strip gun.

    I noticed that when I had the slide unlocked like during breakdown it was catching on the trigger (I'm not a glock armorer so I won't be very technical so bear with me). When I pulled the trigger the slide would move rearward (even though it was unlocked from the frame). I gritted my teeth and pulled hard on the trigger and it popped off!!! I breathed a sigh of relief and will NEVER do anything like that again.

    I'm glad you got it apart.
    Now go stand in the corner and think about what you did.:tongueout:

    If that's the worst thing to happen to you today then you are doing OK. You just learned a cheap lesson.

    The compact and subcompact barrels exchange. Not the full size.
