Is your sear spring down under the sear spring pin? If it's up, (not secured under the pin), it will bind up the slide.

Yes it’s under the pin. The hammer will lock and fall when the trigger is pulled. The frame appears to be fully functional.  I can take the block out and the slide will go on but as soon as I put it back in the slide stops and will not go to the rear.

At this point, photos of the frame and underside of the slide would be very helpful.

They're all coming up as 404 not found...obviously at some point something went together incorrectly. If everything in the frame is back together correctly then it must be something in the slide. Does the slide go on and move correctly if the breechblock is removed? Is the extractor all the way seated?

Going to try again. If the pictures post then you should be able to see what I'm talking about.


This is as far back as the slide will go.

It's as if the barrel isn't fully in battery in the slide? What happens if you remove the recoil spring assembly, fully seat the barrel in the slide, and re-assemble the pistol upside-down (without the recoil spring assembly at all)?

Assuming the locking block is the same (or at least mostly identical) to a 229/226, you wouldn't be able to get the takedown lever in if it weren't all the way down. Since the frame seems to be ok, there's got to be something up with how the barrel is in the slide?

I don't believe it's a locking block or barrel problem. It's not sliding back far enough to even hit the locking insert. Are you certain you installed the safety lever correctly? It's the part that you re-installed with the sear. The rear part of the safety lever goes behind the ledge of the sear.

Did you disassemble the slide also? If so, is the firing pin block working?

Oh! It also looks like you have a magazine in it? Take the magazine out...you can't have a magazine in it while trying to put the slide back on...

I didn’t have the magazine in when I tried to put the slide back on, just put it in to keep it with the gun.  I’ll check the safety lever and give a update. I appreciate all the input.

@scrufy18 Do you have an update for us?

not yet Haven’t checked it yet. But I did take it to a local gunsmith and he said there was no reason it not go back together.

Update!  Send it to sig. According to them the locking block was not fully seated. Not sure how that can be since it slid right in place when I put it back together and the locking block pin went right in. But anyway it’s back together.

Hmm, that is strange. I've never heard of the locking block not fully seating with the takedown lever installed. I'm glad its fixed for you now.
