Always make sure pistol is unloaded!

1. Open up a large paper clip.

2. Cock hammer and remove magazine

3. Turn pistol upside down and pull back slide approximately 1/2" holding it in that position.

4. Insert unbent end of paper clip through hole in the lower front frame until it touches the slide lock.

5. Leave paper clip in that position and release slide to move forward. There should now be play in slide movement. (paper clip should remain in this position until pistol is reassembled.)

6. With the left side of the pistol facing down, the slide lock should drop out. Now the slide can be withdrawn from the rear. No force is required to remove the slide lock. The slide lock will only exit the pistol from the left side.

7. Assemble in reverse order remembering to line up the small pin on the slide lock with the corresponding cut in the slide. Make sure lock is securely in place before removing paper clip.

NOTE: Further disassembly of the Model 1900 requires the removal of pins and is not recommended.

No force is required to remove the slide lock. The slide lock will only exit the pistol from the left side.
