Use forward pressure against the slide, to simulate that the spring is in there. Pull the trigger while you give it forward pressure, and then disassemble as normal. I've done this before, don't sweat it!

If all else fails remove the striker assy. glockmeister.com/slidedis.shtml All you need is a big nail or a 3/32" punch. Just llock the slide open and remove the striker assy. The slide will now slide right off w/barrel.

Pressing it against a carpeted floor works best.

And I hope you don't forget to check to ensure they're ain't any ammo in the thing first.

Dude, don't feel bad. I spent two hours last month trying to get the trigger assembly for my M1 Carbine back together. Finally got the bright idea of searching the internet for a copy of the manual and got it back together in five minutes.
