It was pretty easy, just depress the plastic ring in the middle of the rear plate. This ring is where the "cocked indicator" protrudes. Anyway, just press it in far enough to let the plate slide down and off the slide. That ring is actually like a plunger. With the plate removed you can pull out the plunger and spring, shoot it out w/Action Blaster, and re-assemble.
I did have 1 "SPOOOOOING" but got lucky as the plunger landed on my foot.
Now that I KNOW, I strongly recommend this for ALL striker guns as regular maintenance.
