Slide won't go on frame?

    Okay this is not on a Glock, it's on a Walther P99C that my dad owns, he's 4 hours away so I can't look at it myself to see and figured some of you might have an idea what could be the probelm:

    Well he fully stripped his P99 down to polish the trigger components and reassembled it and now he said he can slide the slide on the frame all the way. When it gets about 1/2" from the back of the frame it stops and will not go on all the way.

    It sounds to me from how he is describing it is that when it is hitting the rails at the rear trigger housing something is catching it and stopping it from going any farther. He said if he takes the barrel and guide rod/spring out it will slide onto the frame just fine.

    Anyone have an idea on what could be the problem?
