    Default Slide stuck on CW380

    Just got a brand new CW380. After reading all the horror stories of first range trips, I decided to give the gun a good cleaning and lubing per the guides on this forum. During reassembly, the slide became stuck and won't budge one way or the other. I'm not a novice to semi auto handguns and have been disassembling and reassembling them for over 25 years. I'm sure the rails were lined up perfectly. Any advice is greatly appreciated. The slide was never fully retracted during reassembly. Never made it far enough back to even attempt reinserting the slide stop. Heck, you can still see the recoil sping and guide rod up front. Anyone have any idea of where it is catching? Thanks in advance.

    Might be catching the recoil assembly, they have to be in there just right or they catch.

    I'd try pulling the trigger and rocking it back and forth, more force going off than on.

    Thanks. That did the trick. Got it put back together. Even got the slide stop back in.

    Awesomeness. Always a good thing when you get it all back together with no parts left over.

    Glad it cooperated.

    Had the exact same problem the other day when I tried to reassemble my CW380 after the initial cleaning and lube. It is still a small challenge to reassemble this gun compared to my CZs or S&W firearms. The fear of everything going wrong never happened.......first range outing was without any problems. I used Federal and Estate ammo on my first range trip. This is my first Kahr and I hear just about everyone say the same thing (especially about the 380s) ......keep it clean. Hope you have a great experience with your first trip shooting your CW 380 like I did.
