I disassembled my Star and somehow put the slide lock pin in with the barrel and slide extended.Now I can't get it out.Any suggestions?
Also,is everyone else's bull barrel hard to remove from the slide?
Thanks

Tracer, I got my firestar to try and figure out what you did. I was able to install the slidestop so that the barrel and the guide rod were extended about a half an inch. This locked the slide up. To get the slide to move I had to push the rear hood of the barrel down with my finger to get it to unlock from the slide. Then I was able to move the slide rearward to line up the two marks and remove the slide stop. My barrel fits pretty snug but the bull part has to go in and out right behind the dust cover of the slide. Hope this helps. Mark
