PT140 Problems

I attempted to field strip my Taurus PT140 tonight - followed the manual direction to a tee; removed slide latch, pulled trigger and it locked up totally. Won't move a millimeter forward or backward. I'm seeing a gunsmith in my future unless someone knows how to get it moving..............

I have a number of pistols and have had no issues field stripping - have field stripped the PT140 twice before with no problem.

At the moment, just a thought.... You haven't by any chance engaged the manual lock? You know with the little key?

That happens a lot with the Pro series and is an easy fix.
