hope this helps you out and good luck with the new pistol. don't worry, it's gets easier the more times you field strip it!
The problem is that the slide will not come off. Won't even budge.

gonna need someone better at 1911's than me. i can usually figure them out pretty good at my bench, but without the gun in my hand it will be hard for to figure out what is binding causing the slide to not be able to move. hopefully some of the better 1911 guys will pop in here and give some advice.

Hey. Take it back apart. My sr1911 does that. Make sure your barrel pin guide is facing the right direction.

We got it apart, but where I was having trouble at last night is the little pin for the thumb safety. I can't get tge slide stop pin past the thumb safety little pin.

I find it easier to put the SAFTEY on then try to get that on.

Try adding some lube on the pin and plunging it a few times some times on a new pistol there are burs that need to be worked off, also try inserting the slide stop pin straight on and not from the bottom to avoid the idiot scratch.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun
