    I have had a Lasermax installed on my Sig 226 which has worked great. This is the setup where the stock guide rod is replaced by the Lasermax guide rod and spring and the laser is activated by the new take down lever which has an internal button.

    Something had gone wrong with the take down lever and i had sent it back to Lasermax to get fixed and i put the gun back together with the Lasermax rod, spring and i slid it on the frame but with NO take down lever. Now that the take down lever is back from Lasermax, i cant take the slide off the frame anymore. I should have never installed the slide back on the frame without the take down lever, but at this time i need to know how i can get it off. It almost feels like that the guide rod has slipped off its notch on the barrel and preventing the slide from coming off. Also when i rack the slide back and lock it, it does not lock back when i hit the slide release, it slowly closes and gets hung up half way. All inputs appreciated. Here is a pic:

    I had a laser max on a glock 23 that slipped while shooting it causing the gun to jam. Never again...... That being said anybody want to buy a slightly used laser max?:rofl:

    If you have a dental pick, can you insert it in the slide stop hole and try to push up while compressing the spring?
