I am trying to remove the ejector that pulls the cases out of the slide. Is it the pin that shows on the recessed grove on the top of the slide if so which way do I remove it and how much force should it take.

Any ideas on how to remove it Thanks

Were you actually able to get it out? I know that mine was in there too tight to remove, as is the case with most S&W autos. I bent my puch trying to get it out.

I read somewhere that the extractor and slide went through the melonite process an assembly making it a PITA to separate the two.

I was hesitant to post this; but here you go.



--Proceed at your own risk.--

Make a short starter punch.

Lay the slide on a protected hard surface with the muzzle hanging off the side, so that it lays flat.

Use a large hammer and the starter punch to knock the pin loose, top to bottom.

Once it breaks loose, it will punch out fairly easily.

The slide is Melonited with the extractor and pin in place. This makes it very hard to break loose.

I have heard from a couple sources that S&W is thinking about using a roll pin here for easier disassembly. I don't know if this will happen, or not. At this point, S&W isn't even training armorers to remove the extractor.

Have fun!!!
