    Good to know. The MKIII can be tough at times.

    I have seen the videos on YouTube, A couple of theme are pretty good! But do not hit your polimer gun with a mallet rubber hammer, be aware that it might break! The issue is that before the desasembly the trigger has to be pulled! The hammer has to be discharged or it will be pressing in the way! If you have tis issue where is already stuck, all you have to do is to insert a long allen wrench no bigger than 1/4 long enoug to reach inside the magazine cavity! Tours the back of the pistol and pull down the hammer! Which it has to be done while pulling the trigger so it will allow the hammer to go down! Hitting the gun with a rubber hammer has to be done from the bottom up! Not in the back or the top! So be carefull if using the hammer.

    Does this work on models with a magazine disconnect?
