At the right front side of the trigger guard is a release catch.

Press it in, and pull the entire trigger guard down and away from the slide until it comes completely off.

Pull the slide to the rear, and lift it up at the rear, then allow it to move forward and off the frame.

To remove the grips, notice that the monogram on the right grip has two holes in it.
Use a small pair of circlip pliers or a homemade spanner tool to unscrew the monogram, which releases both grips.

To remove the separate breech block, the extractor has to be released.
This depends on the age of the gun.
Early versions require a thin blade to be forced between the extractor and slide side wall.
Later models use a small punch to press against the retaining pin through the hole in the slide sidewall, while the extractor is pulled out with a small screwdriver or other tool.

Firing pins are also different according to age.
Early models are retained by the extractor and slip out once the breech block is removed.

In later models, the firing pin is retained by a plate and screw which can be removed without removing the extractor or breech block.
