P320 Assembly Disasembly Mess Login/Join

Hello,
Not sure how this happened but...
My p320 action/receiver, is solidly stuck in the slide. The grip/frame is removed but the slide with recoil rod and spring and action are all in one piece. I can't get the take down lever into the action. It appears the recoil rod is blocking the hole for the take down lever.
Need help getting this unscrewed. Thanks.

Did you remove the takedown lever before removing the slide from the FCU and grip module?

If so, perhaps this will help:

Hi SigFreund ~ It's been a couple of years since I fixed this problem for someone at a local range. It won't be until after New Years that I will have a P320 in hand to use as a test bed to verify that I'm remembering the fix correctly.

The hang up is the normal position of the Striker Pin protruding from the slide downward and being held by the resting position of the Sear in the FCU. You can see this with the FCU out of the Grip and lining it up with the slide.

The fix...
Reinsert the FCU and Slide onto the Grip Module.
Rack the Slide to the rear slowly.
Slowly push the Slide forward until you feel the Striker Pin barely make contact with the Sear.
Slowly pull the Trigger to lower the Sear. Don't reset the Trigger or the Sear will return to its resting position.
Push the Slide forward when you feel the Sear has lowered and the tension on the Striker Pin is gone.
Inspect the Sear and Striker Pin for damage and replace as appropriate.

Hi Mhkaihei ~ Welcome to SigForum!!!

I ran across an easier method than the one I provided to SigFreund back in December. The issue remains the lock up between the Sear and the Striker.

I hope this helps...

Thanks, sleepla8er, for that. I haven’t reviewed the video yet because I hope to never need it (again!), but I have the link recorded along with your previous post.
