Texas Laser Range
Two situations here, I have a Hellcat pro, trying to takedown the gun to lube it. Trigger isn't resetting. Take down lever from hell. The damn thing simply won't turn so I can remove the slide and barrel. Any thoughts???
Well, I'd like to claim it was a defect of some kind, unfortunately, It was a MENTAL DEFECT on my part. It's one of those deal, if you JUST READ the manual, one can find all kinds of helpful information there. But, hey, I know EVERYTHING there is to know about guns, so no manual needed for me. However, to satisfy those know it all's out there, I went to the manual, and Low and behold, I found that it you simply pushed the take down lever in the proper position (which is 180 degrees from the way I was trying to push it). Dang smarty pants at Springfield. They did that just to embarrass me, LOL.Check the Owners Manual, I don't know on Hellcat, but on my Sig P320 M18, there are cleaning safety provisions designed to keep you from setting off a round in the chamber while taking it down for cleaning. So on my Sig P320 M18, if the magazine is in, or the slide is not locked back with the slide stop lever, the takedown lever is blocked and you can't move it. Reassembly, don't lock the slide back before throwing the takedown lever, the trigger will be disabled until you lock the slide back.
So it could be something like that, some safety feature for cleaning, requires a certain condition before the takedown lever will move.
It always works when one pushes it in the correct direction. See my response below. lolI just bought a Hellcat Pro Friday....the take down lever was really stiff but I got it to work as it should. Was easier the 2nd time

Same here... had to take it down and reassemble about 10 times before it became easy enough... day 1 that thing was tough.I just bought a Hellcat Pro Friday....the take down lever was really stiff but I got it to work as it should. Was easier the 2nd time
