I don't have my scanner back yet so I can't send you the instructions. You might ask Harly Nolden on his page of this site and if he doesn't have it contact S&W for an owner's manual. George

I called S&W and recieved help over the phone. My problem was I didn't know where the slide should be positioned to remove the slide catch. Thanks for the help.
