Default Glock not fireing or dry fireing

I have a gen 3 g23 and I recently purchased a ghost rocket 3.5 kit suppose to be drop in direct fit easy install but the gun wont fire. I tried to dry fire to take the slide off to put the factory glock parts back in and it wont dry fire either therefore I cannot remove the slide. Can anyone help me with ideas to get the slide off this gun.

Lock the slide in the rearward position.

Where the striker is, you can see the spring and a plastic piece. Push that plastic down(forward towards front of gun) with a small punch. This allows the back plate to slide off. Remove the striker and gently ease the slide forward. It will come all the way off. Replace striker and plate.

I think mabey a fireing pin problem or jammed hammer. Possibly failure to engage hammer.

IMO "drop in" means that a 'hobbyist' can install it with minimal effort and simple hand tools, as opposed to a "gunsmith/professional fit". As a gunsmith I rarely see drop in parts that drop in. They have to account for variations in manufacturing and between models, so the parts are usually a bit over sized. It has been a while since I installed a ghost trigger, but I believe there is a tab on the bar that trips the sear that needs to be bent or filed down to fit. Should say in the instructions that came with it where to remove metal so the trigger will move far enough to trip the sear and release the striker. Don't try to remove a lot of material at once, take baby steps. If you go too far you will wind up with over travel. A couple swipes with a file, assemble, and function check. Repeat if function check failed. Unfortunately you have to do the back plate trick willfully armed mentioned earlier each time to disassemble it until you get it working. It is a pretty simple process, just go slow and carefully. The ghost triggers are real nice once they are fit.

Contrary to the common parts... Glock parts are truly "drop In".

I have completely disassembled and replaced all parts in many glocks. And have yet to find a part that needed fit.
However, I use Glockworx connectors. Ghosts aren't near as good.
