On a serious note, I believe you can open the backing plate to release the striker.

You can use a small screw driver stick it in the back and while griping the grip safety push the sear down out of the way of the striker. The slide should come off. There used to be a really tacicool fork mod specifically for this. Most limey the trigger spring broke if the trigger feels limp.
