Be careful, the 3rd gen Smiths are very addictive. I went from having none to owning three in less than four months.

There are two important things the link does not explain.
  1. It's much easier to retract the slide and line up the pin with the takedown notch if you cock the hammer first.
  2. Three little levers pop up at the back of the frame when you take the slide off (I believe it's two if the pistol is DAO). When you reinstall the slide, you must decock the hammer in order to push the levers down and get the slide past them. Once they're down, then you can cock the hammer to make it easier to retract the slide again.
Cheers.
