Does anyone know what I should do? I didn't see it hanging up on the extractor or any other part of the slide.
if i am correct, on the series 80 firing pin safety system there is a plunger on the bottom of the slide. push it in and push the firing pin in. it has two steps on the the firing pin. you must push the firing pin in all the way while holding the plunger. at a certain point the plunger will actually hold the firing pin in position allowing you to remove the firing pin block and firng pin. if it still doesnt work, i think you tube has a video showing how to remove a series 80 firing pin. hope this helps
