    Been shooting real firearms my whole life, but must be *** with airsoft. Bought a WE glock 19 for practice and completely botched a standard dis/reassembly by installing the barrel upside down and trying to reassemble.

    The barrel itself is stuck. The slide moves a few mm back and forth. The spring looks like its no longer in place and the barrel is hanging out the front. 15224557718731764427187.jpg 15224557718731764427187.jpg 152245579917353083491.jpg 15224557718731764427187.jpg 152245579917353083491.jpg

    How did you even get it in the slide upside down?

    I dont know, it wasn't even hard. I noticed the recoil spring was a little off center, but figured it was my imagination. The slide slid onto the gun with little effort. Pretty sure this gun is a lost cause. It's only riding on the rear rails where I believe the barrel is caught and it won't budge

    Pull down on slide release and tap the back against a work bench to shift it forwards. Keep tapping until you clear the slide form the lower.

    I tried that. And hammered it against the table to no avail. Did it for a while. Its holding tight to whatever the plunger looking thing is that makes contact with the barrel. 1522457004780144864260.jpg

    Stop...before you wreck it more.

    Never force anything in Airsoft. Especially with a Butter Knife. The slide was on a rail, like a real Glock...what were you thinking?

    If you slide rails are not cracked. Gentry try and tap it back "down" on to the rails.

    If you cannot finesse this off now...send it out for servicing.

    Hey man, brute force used to be my nickname back in college. MAGA you know.

    So update, i brute forced the **** out of it. Reassembled it right. Some stuff broke off. The little black thing. 15224582463111167157387.jpg Not sure what the hell it is in the pic below. Just shot off my first 5 rounds flawlessly. GET SOME.

    It's obvious...its part of your slide. See the left part in your picture....that was part of the hook that tucks under the rail on the lower.

    Probably wont affect anything. The locking block takes most of the stress. You got lucky. Dont do that **** again if you want to keep playing with your gun.

    Try brazing the pot metal so it's one piece again. First you to sand/clean off both parts. Use a torch to heat both parts. Be careful not to melt anything. Drag the al brazing rod across both pieces. Done!

    Without knowing the true composition of the alloy...and the ability to do delicate work...it's not going to work.

    Aw man, if you didn't whack it to pieces, shoved a knife in there, and managed to fix it, I was going to offer to buy it off of you to end your misery lol.
