    Well I finally shot my grandfather-in law's 1934. I remember taking the barrel out some time ago. I needed to lookup how to do this online.

    Well I decided to clean it toady and did the following.

    Locked slide back

    Pushed barrel out

    Cleaned everything I could get at

    Somehow slide released forward and guide rod and spring came out.

    I cannot reassemble in reverse order.

    With safety in place, the slide will not slide fully back

    I tried slipping barrel in and did get it to seat but then slide would not slide back.

    Can someone itemize the reassembly process?-I have checked the web throughly and only found breakdown instructions that say to reassemble in reverse.

    Please help.

    Regards

    Magazine must be out. Insert safety in the position to lock slide, insert
    spring and guide, make sure guide engages flat on safety, replace slide and
    lock it back, seat barrel, release slide. One of my favorite handguns.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I figured it out-I had the guide rod backwards. Everything after that assembled as you described.

    I have another question: can I have aq round in the chamber and lower the hammer somehow. I'd like to have 7+1. Thanks

    To lower the hammer you just have to carefully hold it and pull the trigger.
    The firing pin is an inertia type if original and so the gun is safe to carry
    with the chamber loaded and the hammer down. Most of these guns have strong
    hammer springs and are hard to cock with one hand from the fully down position
    and it might be best to carry with the hammer in the half cock position which
    holds the hammer only slightly off the firing pin.
