Before cleaning or field stripping any gun , MAKE SURE IT IS UNLOADED. I know this sounds like a NO - BRAINER. But you would be suprized how many people shoot themself or someone else while cleaning or handling a gun the everyone thought was UN-LOADED.

Pull the slide back & lock it in this posision with the slide stop on the left side of the gun.
REMOVE THE BARREL Under the barrel & on the front of the trigger guard is a button , This button has to be pushed in all the way to release the barrel. It is under heavy spring presure & can be difficult to push in all the way. If you can't get it to move. Place the button against the edge of the bench ( use a shop rag to protect the finish on the gun)& while securely holding the gun , push the button against the bench to get the buttom move , & little WD-40 or gun oil on the button won't hurt. Once the button is moving , Push it in all the way & pull up on the barrel. with the button all the way in the barrel can be removed from the frame. Set the barrel aside & move to the next step
