well below the edge of the slide. Use a
thin awl or a jeweler's screwdriver as
shown (Fig. 4), and rotate the extractor toward the firing pin.
After removing the extractor spring
(4) and safety catch plunger (5)
remove the safety catch (36) by first
rotating it to the off position. Then,
while pushing the firing pin deep into
the slide, lift out the safety catch.
Finally, the magazine catch (26) is
retained by the trigger guard plunger

(23) is not recommended unless it is
absolutely necessary as they are under
strong tension. If it is necessary, first
push out the trigger guard pin (24).
Again, it is not advisable to remove
the trigger bar (39) or cocking piece

do not pry out the trigger bar; rather,
remove the cocking piece first.
Reassembly is in the reverse order.

PP, which can obviously be tricky, visit
