It happened to me today, I just read the threads to find the fix. I ended up using a box end 7/16" wrench instead of a crescent. Pryed a little on the guide rod and she popped free.Well, maybe someone can help me. I cleaned my XD45 but then when I put the slide back on, it jammed and now it won't move. I just cant move the slide at all. It just wont move. Can someone help me remove this slide???
