takedown lever on p229
I have a P229 E2 that I cannot disassemble anymore. The magazine is out, the slide is retracted backwards and locked in place, but the takedown lever only rotates to the 4 o'clock position, and there is no way to rotate it any further.
I am clueless as to what the problem might be. I took the slide off and cleaned it a week ago, put it back together, tried to take it off again, and cannot.
Otherwise the firearm seems ok, everything functions as usual. I don't want to shoot with live ammunition though until this is fixed. Any ideas?
