    Post How to detail strip a P30/P30S/P30L/P30LS

    This 4-part guide will show you how to detail strip a P30-series gun (P30/P30S/P30L/P30LS).

    Part 1 - Detail Stripping of the Slide

    Tools you will need:
    1. A 3/32 roll-pin punch
    2. A set of long, needle-nose pliers
    3. A bench block (optional)
    4. A small hammer or mallet (not pictured)





    Slide Disassembly

    Step 1
    • Remove the Recoil Spring Assembly
    • Remove the barrel





    Step 2
    • Note the location of the Extractor roll-pin (circled in YELLOW), Firing Pin Block roll-pin (circled in RED), Firing Pin Block, and Firing Pin



    • Using the 3/32 roll-pin punch, tap out the roll pin (circled in RED) from inside the slide until it falls out on the other side



    • Push down on the Firing Pin Block while pushing inward on the Firing Pin, then release the Firing Pin Block
    • The Firing Pin should be disengaged from the firing pin channel
    • Remove the Firing Pin, Firing Pin Spring, Firing Pin Block, and Firing Pin Block Spring

    1. Firing Pin Block Pin
    2. Firing Pin Block Spring
    3. Firing Pin Block
    4. Firing Pin Spring
    5. Firing Pin




    Step 3
    • Locate the Extractor roll pin and, with the 3/32 roll-pin punch, tap it out from the inside the slide until it falls out on the other side



    • Remove the Extractor, Extractor Spring, and the Extractor Rubber Plug

    1. Extractor Rubber Plug
    2. Extractor Spring
    3. Extractor roll pin
    4. Extractor




    Slide Re-assembly

    Step 1
    • Insert the Extractor Rubber Plug inside the Extractor Spring




    Step 2
    • Insert the Extractor Spring + Rubber Plug into the cavity next to the extractor channel




    Step 3
    • Oil the Extractor lightly
    • Replace the Extractor, making sure the Loaded Chamber Indicator is facing the muzzle





    Step 4
    • While holding the Extractor in place, insert the Extractor roll pin and tap it in using the 3/32 roll-pin punch until the pin sits slightly below the slide surface
    • Flip the slide over and make sure the roll pin is slightly visible from the top of the slide (circled in RED)





    Step 5
    • Oil the Firing Pin lightly but do not oil or lube the Firing Pin channel!
    • Insert the Firing Pin into the Firing Pin Spring



    • Insert the Firing Pin into the firing pin channel, making sure the cut on the Firing Pin is facing the right side of the slide (circled in RED)




    Step 6
    • Drop the Firing Pin Block Spring into the slide, then the Firing Pin Block on top of it. Note the orientation of the Firing Pin Block
    • Push down on the Firing Pin Block while pushing inward on the Firing Pin, then release the Firing Pin Block. This will lock the Firing Pin in place



    • Push inward on the Firing Pin then insert the Firing Pin Roll-Pin until it goes in 1/2 way. Then let go of the Firing Pin
    • Using the 3/32 roll-pin punch, tap in the roll-pin until it sits slightly below the slide surface



    • Flip the slide over and make sure the Firing Pin Block roll pin (circled in YELLOW) and Extractor roll-pin (circled in RED) are slightly visible from the top of the slide




    Step 7
    • Replace the barrel



    • Replace the Recoil Spring Assembly

    Default Part 4 - Frame Re-assembly

    Frame Re-assembly

    Lightly oil the following parts:
    • Trigger Axle
    • Trigger Bar
    • Trigger Bar Detent
    • Trigger Bar Detent Spring
    • Hammer
    • Hammer Axle (or right-side Safety Lever shaft on a P30S/P30LS)
    • Hammer Strut
    • Hammer Spring
    • Sear Axle
    • Disconnector
    • Control Latch
    • Catch
    • Sear with Decocker
    • Flat Sear Spring


    Step 1
    • Insert the Trigger into the frame
    • Locate the Trigger Axle hole and sleeve the 1/16 regular punch through the Trigger




    Step 2
    • Insert the 2 small strips of a coffee stirrer onto the Trigger Rebound Spring legs




    • Insert the Trigger Rebound Spring into the frame. The spring's right leg (the longer of the two) will be on the right side of the frame



    • The spring's left leg will stick out behind the trigger



    • With the punch sitting flush against the right side of the frame, grab the Trigger Rebound Spring with the needle-nose pliers and push it down
    • Sleeve the punch through the spring until it protrudes from the left side of the frame



    • Insert the Trigger Axle into the frame from the left side of the frame, backing out the punch



    • Tap the Trigger Axle into the frame so that the other end of the axle sits flush with the right side of the frame
    • Remove the coffee stirrer strips




    Step 3
    • Insert the right-side Slide Release Lever into the frame. Insert it at a 30-degree angle then flip it down





    Step 4
    • Insert the left-side Slide Release Lever until it hits the Trigger Rebound Spring's right leg



    • Using the dental pick, lift up the spring's right leg, then push the Slide Release Lever in completely
    • Release the spring's leg. It should rest upon the groove on the Slide Release Lever




    Step 5
    • Grab the Flat Sear Spring with the needle-nose pliers and insert it into the frame. Make sure it clicks.





    Step 6
    • Assemble the Trigger Bar Detent and its spring, then drop them into the frame. Push down lightly on the Trigger Bar Detent to lock it in place
    • While pulling back lightly on the trigger, insert the Trigger Bar onto the eyelet on the trigger. Put a drop of oil where the Trigger Bar connects to the trigger



    • Flip down the Trigger Bar so that it rests right on top of the Trigger Bar Detent




    Step 7
    • Drop the Hammer Strut into the frame
    • A small piece of painter's masking tape would help secure the strut to the grip, preventing it from moving around while installing the hammer parts





    Step 8
    If yours is a P30S or P30LS, skip to step 9

    • Drop the Hammer into the frame



    • While depressing lightly on the Trigger Bar, insert the Hammer Axle from the right side of the frame through the hammer, until it sits flush with the right side of the frame






    • The axle should also sit flush on the left side of the frame




    Step 9
    If yours is a P30 or P30L, continue to step 10

    • Drop the Hammer into the frame
    • While depressing lightly on the Trigger Bar, insert the right-side Safety Lever through the hammer until it touches the right side of the frame



    • Insert the left-side Safety Lever Detent Spring into the cavity on the frame



    • Drop the Safety Lever Detent on top of the spring




    • Insert the tiny Safety Lever Retaining Pin into the lever, just enough so that it sits flush with the inside of the lever



    • Mount the left-side Safety Lever onto the Hammer Axle



    • While applying a little pressure on the left-side Safety Lever against the left side of the frame, tap the tiny pin into the lever using the 1/16 roll-pin punch, until it completely sits inside the lever, securing it in place. If you don't apply pressure on the lever against the frame, you won't be able to tap the roll pin in.




    Step 10
    • Insert the Disconnector




    • Insert the Sear with Decocker. It should go between the Flat Sear Spring and Hammer




    • Insert the Control Lever (aka Control Latch)




    • Insert the Catch. It should go between the Flat Sear Spring and Hammer Axle




    • Sleeve the 3/32 punch from the right side of the frame through these parts, until it protrudes from the left side of the frame



    • Make sure the larger end of the Sear Axle is facing the left side of the frame
    • Insert the axle from the left side of the frame, backing out the punch



    • Both ends of the Sear Axle should sit flush with the frame





    Step 11
    • Insert the Hammer Spring onto the Hammer Strut
    • Make sure the Hammer Strut is positioned correctly in the frame



    • Insert the other end of the Hammer Spring into the Hammer Spring Bearing (pay attention to the Hammer Spring Bearing orientation)
    • Using the butt of a punch, push up lightly on the Hammer Spring Bearing and insert the retaining pin into the upper hole on the bearing (circled in RED). The lower hole is for the backstrap roll pin.






    Step 12
    • Mount the backstrap onto the grip
    • Insert the backstrap roll pin and tap it in, using the 3/32 roll-pin punch




    The frame is now completely assembled.

    TooSixy, thank you, this was a real eye opener as to the proper way to dis-assemble the P30. Your tips w/ the stir sticks, and, the directional removal of the pins is extremely helpful. The pic's detail everything and make a "must add" to any personal library.
