Default Jammed slide w/a live round.

I've been trying some 9mm reloaded lead round nose in a G19 w/a Lone Wolf barrel. I've put just over 190 rounds through it without a problem. On the last magazine she jammed after five shots. The slide has almost retuned to battery and is now immovable. The barrel is slightly angled. There is a live round in the pistol. Nothing concerning an immovable slide turned up on the search.

Any suggestions?

Check the Glock forum, maybe there is a Glock Armorer on there?

You're kinda sol. The bullet is the cause of the jam (Most likely) not a failed part. All you can really do is drop the mag and carefully bang the slide into or out of battery. Keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Take a peak up the grip and see if you can tell for sure that the round is causing the jam.

Pointing the gun in a safe direction (because it may go off) hold the slide tightly with one hand. Take the other hand and try to slap the back of the grip. You need to cycle the slide back. Do not force it into battery.

Some times you can sit the front of the gun on the edge of a shooting table. Do it so that the barrel will be off the edge of the table. Then try hitting the back of the grip with a block of wood. Again, be careful not to put your feet or any other part of your body in front of the muzzle. I would try to do this at a shooting range if I were you.

Had the same thing happen to my Shield, and the above worked to free it. I didn't have to hit the back though, just downward pressure with my weight behind it popped it loose pretty easily. Good luck, and be careful!

Sounds like you've had experience with this, or something like it. I'm getting that I should put a mag back in the pistol, secure the slide in vise, and whack the grip with a mallet or something to get the slide to lock back. If I can't find a brave gunsmith, that's what i'll try.

Not to speak for someone else, but not quite what he was saying. If you have a wooden table/bench (or just a large piece of wood will also work), point the gun down and put the front of the slide against the wood but keeping the barrel clear. Then just push straight down on the frame. Frame goes down, slide pushes against wood and stays in place, stuck round pops out. At least that's how it worked for me. If that doesn't make sense I can post a pick in a few.

I think I got it. It's just that the slide is SO jammed that I'm guessing I'll take more than my body weight to free it. But I'll certainly try it 'your' way first. Maybe tomorrow. We've got pressure treated ties holding back the berms at our outdoor range. This time of the year they're hard frozen too, so I doubt they'd give when I leaned on the grip.

Were you able to determine the cause of your jam? Was the bullet.not seated far enough down in the case?Or what?

I thought the same thing with mine, it was so stuck there was absolutely ZERO movement when I tried to clear it by hand, but it came right out when I did the above. Hope it works the same for you.

Don't know exactly what caused it, but I'm about 99.9% sure it was an ammo problem (Ultramax bulk remanufactured) not a gun problem.
