    Stripping a Umarex Glock 17 gen 4

    I find it very difficult to remove the slide because the two catches that have to be held down at the same time are so stiff to operate. The videos make it look so easy

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Mine is exactly the same and has only freed up a small amount since I got it.

    Mine was OK - the trick is to line up the slide and frame correctly and they should release.

    I have only just sold my example.

    Currently looking for Baikal Makarov pistols with the following prefixes to the serial number: 98, T01, T03, T07, T08, T09, T14
    Prefer boxed or cased but will consider loose examples too.

    Yep, mine won't even move if I don't palm the slide at the same time
