I'm sure it depends on your gun, but I do it all the time for my Bersa .22. Well maybe not ALL the time, but it seems like lately everytime I go to the range I've had to disassemble it in order to get something unstuck. It's always just a spent casing... I think my extractor is broke...

Or Chamber needs polishing. Or extractor spring is weak and simply needs replacing. Maybe the extractor simply needs reshaping or replacing. Is easier than you may think.

May be easier than I think, but I'm still gonna just send it into Bersa. Lifetime warranty is there for a reason. Plus I don't know the first thing about any of that stuff, and am pretty clumsy. I'd hate to make it worse.

I find that it is easier to hold the slide and hit the frame of the gun forward than pull the slide back when it's really stuck. I just ram my hand forward like I'm coming in to grip the gun. Just watch your trigger finger

With a 22a you have to have the slide back in order to disassemble.

Just a safety side note.
Never look down in the barrel to see the problem that has occurred.
