    Just picked this up this afternoon and I just took the slide off. When trying to put the slide on the frame it gets stuck. It feels like it is hitting something, not sure if it is the trigger bar or the connector or something else. It gets stuck at this point shown. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Push the end of the recoil assembly back into the barrel lug before assembling.

    IF for some reason it has a NY trigger spring installed, you will need to pull the trigger as you are reassembling.

    Yep... my guess is the recoil spring is not slid up far enough. I t must be as close to the barrel as you can get it, and centered side to side.
