    So a while ago I put my WE g17 outer barel into my elite force g17 slide and the slide has been stuck on ever since. The elite force inner barrel is in there, but the slide won't rack back. Since the trigger has been pulled, the slide can go forward a little bit, but not enough to come off. In the pictures, that's as far forward and backwards that the slide will go. If anyone has any ideas on what to do I'd love to hear it.

    Reach in from the back with an allen key and pull the hammer down. Then do regular slide removal procedures.

    And why did you put a WE Outer barrel slide on a VFC/EF Glock?

    Sometimes random parts/brands are compatible with other parts/brands and the only way to find out is to try.

    That combination is maybe a little obvious, but still.

    Thanks I'll try that, and I originally bought the outer barrel for my cousin because he wanted one with and without an orange tip and we tried it on my gun and the rest is history

    No worries...trust me...what you did was not uncommon and has been happening since 2004.
