Slide Jam

Postby Chapabel » Tue Aug 30, 2016 2:25 pm

Ok folks I have a question for y'all. Yesterday I fired about 50 rounds through my cpx-2 with no problems. However, when I got home I started to clean it but the slide would not come off. I removed the pin, but the slide refused to budge. I could cycle it back and forth, but it would not come off the rails. It would move forward about an 1/8 inch.

I called the service department at Sccy and Charlie said it sounded like it was a problem with the recoil spring and guide rod. He said he would send me one. He told me to take a rubber mallet and tap the slide off in order to replace the guide rod assembly.

So I take my mallet and finally got the slide off (it required more than just tapping it). The guide rod and spring looked fine. I put everything back together and now it works as advertised. No problems at all. I have taken the slide off several times since yesterday and it seems to be perfect. What happened? Anyone else have this happen or any ideas?

If the disassembly pin isn't inserted correctly the recoil rod can slip off the barrel lug and foul with the cross-member in the frame in front of the receiver. It makes the slide hang and keeps it from being removed or even moved usually. It sounds like your recoil spring somehow got fouled something like that.

I've never heard of it happening after the pin was removed and the slide moving as you mentioned.

You're a trend setter.

Check your recoil rod assembly and frame closely.

Very interesting.
I did a quick test.
First removed the pin.
Then pointing the pistol sccy wards.
Released the lock...and the slide cleared the frame by inches.
Only missed catching the slide once :lol:

That's kinda how I do mine but aim it inside the pocket holster before I let it go. That seems like a good test to see if you need a new guide rod or not. My old rod, the slide wouldn't come clean off the frame at all which kinda explain failure to feed issues.

My CPX-1 slide would not come off on a NIB pistol. I checked the frequently asked questions and it said to pull the guide rod out the front of the pistol and reposition under the barrel. Did that and the slide came right off, no problems since.

You might call SCCY and ask for a replacement guide rod assy. Your issue makes me think there may be some issue with the end of the rod that sits against the barrel lug to let it slip off.

My NIB CPX2 slide will not come off unless I push it very slightly toward the grip, and push down on the ~1/8 inch nub of the spring guide rod extending out the front of the pistol. If I do that while pushing forward on the slide, the slide easily comes off the frame.

Replacing the slide requires my pushing down the spring guide rod when it sticks far out from the slide. It's spring loaded, and disappears so fast into the slide at first I thought it broke off!

I have not shot this gun yet, but have repeated this procedure many times.

Same here, it's very annoying trying to get it off.

juror & Baize - I recommend you call SCCY. Sounds like you have recoil rod assembly issues.
