  • Remove the magazine

  • Check magazine well and chamber twice to insure it’s empty
    • Physically and visually

  • Position trigger finger close to the first joint
  • Pull directly to the rear until gun discharges
  • Release the trigger
    • Until it does not travel forward
    • This resets the drawbar/trigger bar
    • Repeat as necessary
      • When finished, either holster or maintain cover position




  • Lubricate both rail cuts on the slide
    • One(1) drop ONLY – wipe excess away
  • Lubricate inside of slide at the top bearing surfaces
    • Wipe away the excess
