Default Striker-fired Jam

Hi! Given almost any make of the new striker-fired pistols which either fully or partially cock the striker upon final forward movement of the slide, if an unfired round is jammed in the chamber, the striker is still cocked, the user does NOT want to attempt firing (pulling the trigger),

how would you go about removing the round safely?

Chances of an unfired round just "jambing" in the chamber, slide still in battery and striker cocked are non existent.
1) firing
2) unlocking
3) extracting
4) ejecting
5) cocking
6) loading
7) locking

That is the order of operation for any semi or full auto weapon. You cannot skip ANY of the steps, or have one occur out of sequence. If the the weapon is cocked (step 5), and there is a live round in the chamber (step 6), it must have completed steps 7,1,2,3 and 4, in that order.

The only instance I have seen of a live round in the chamber being "jambed" is with several Beretta 92F's. These were caused by broken locking lugs disallowing the slides' cycle. The rounds themselves however were not jambed, and the pistols would have attempted to cycle per the above sequence should attempts to fire them have been made. The only way to fix it is to take it well away from anyone and remove the slide, broken locking lug, and barrel.

So as stated above, rack the slide for a live round in the chamber and a cocked striker.
