Look at the lefthand side of the slide - pull the slide back until the little notch lines up with the slide release.

On the right-hand side press the slide release pin inwards causing the slide release to come out on the left side.

Watch out you'll put an eye out!

Slide the slide forward and off the lower.

Pull the spring out of the slide, then the barrel.

GOOD LUCK GETTING THAT BITCH BACK TOGETHER ...

In other words, exactly like a 1911?

I love the trigger pull and build quality of S&W semi-autos, but it is very
hard to get the slide over the 3 or so little levers sticking up at the butt
of the frame when you go to ease the slide back on over them.

BTW: S&W will give you a free owner's manual drop them a line.

Just make sure it's in the hammer down position and use the handle of your cleaning brush, or the slide lock to press them down as needed.

I just held them down with the pin part of the removed slide release then put the slide on allowing the slide to push the slide relase back and off of the frame worked real slick on my 4006

Hint during disassembly (assuming you have a fair amount of hand strength):

Hold the pistol in your strong hand and push the slide rearward with your weak hand until the disassembly notch in the slide lines up with the slide stop.

Pivot your strong hand a bit so you can tightly wrap the fingers of that hand across the top of the slide while keeping the base of your thumb high on the grip backstrap.

Use your strong hand to hold the slide in place. Tighten or loosen your strong hand to allow the slide to move a bit to precisely line things up.

Use your weak hand to push out the slide stop.

Don’t get any fingers caught between the barrel hood and the slide!

This also helps with reassembly.
