I have a 1916 manufactured 1903 Colt Pocket Hammerless .32 acp. I bought it and it had a failure to feed so I sent it to a gunsmith locally (family friend in need of some business) to get some filing done or see if I just needed to order some new magazines or replace the spring in the original. He could not field strip it, so he removed the safety BEFORE taking the slide off (thinking this was how you removed the slide). Now I cannot pull the slide far enough back to properly field strip it. I shake the gun and I hear no loose parts, so I'm unsure if it is being jammed on a loose internal part. Goes to show no good deed goes unpunished. Anybody have any ideas?
