    Default Slide won't come off new CT45....

    Put the first 260 or so rounds through it today. It did good but got home to take it apart, clean it and the slide won't come off. I have researched, saw some ideas but nothing has worked. Such as holding it upside down when pulling the trigger, taking the slide off, etc. Any ideas?

    You tried pulling or what I call tickling the trigger. Just pull a little bit or more off and on while trying to force the slide off the front?

    I get that once in awhile, it's almost like you have to hold your mouth right to make it go.

    The pins out so that's a very good thing. You might also try pulling it back on and starting over.
    Pull the trigger push off the front.

    What is interesting is at one point during shooting, I saw the pin work its way out. The pin comes out almost too easy for a Kahr. I slips right out, very easy. Not my experience with past Kahr's.

    This is a classic illustration from member gb6491.

    Check out this thread for both the loose slide stop and the stuck slide:

    ^^^ This right here. ^^^

    Last time I took my CM9 apart I struggled and I've had that thing off no less than 50 times.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    sorry
    I apologize if my post contains the same or similar information as someone who has posted before me.

    My ignore list contains many members who I consider scenters and/or agitators and I do not see/read what they post.

    That's too bad lol I got it to come off and then had to hammer the fluck out of it to get the slide back on. I like the gun, it's not CZ, Glock or Hk but it is what it is.

    Clearly you shouldn't need to hammer the thing to take it off or put it on. If it were me I'd take it apart and put it together again until I was able to see what the problem is. Maybe some pictures of the underside of the slide and of the frame might enable people here to help pinpoint the problem.
