Now that I have the slide opener tool I must not be picking up how to use it. Admittingly I didn't spend any time to figure it out. I put the peg in the rear of the barrel and removed the slide pin. Then I could not move the slide at all. Tried to remove the slide with tool installed would'nt budge. Tried to remove the tool by moving the slide and couldn't move the slide in order to remove the tool. So I put the pin back in (btw it doesn't perfectly line up) and removed the tool and removed the slide the old fashioin way. I know I'm going to feel a simpleton when told how to do it...........so, anyone know how to do it?
