WE Glock Slide Stuck

Hi,
I'm new to airsoft, and literally just got my first GBB pistol.
It's a WE Glock 18C G-force T1 (salient arms type g18c).

I took off the slide, then spring guide/recoil spring and barrel to check over it. when I assembled it, the slide is now stuck and will not allow me to rack the slide forwards or backwards.

How do I fix this?,

Thanks in advance

Which location is your slide locking?
At the slide catch location or further back?

Try to disassemble the pistol again. If it does not budge keep holding down the disassembly lever, and give it a light tap with the palm of your hand to the back of the slide.

I've tried this, the slide won't move at all, the dissassembly lever is half pressed down. The slide can move 2-3 mm and the trigger can reset with this slight wobble of the slide.

It looks like the barrel grouping isn't going into place; the recoil spring guide should not be protruding out like that.

Hold down both sides of the slide disassembly and try to rack it back. Do this GENTLY.

If this does not work, hold down both sides of the slide disassembly and try to shimmy the recoil spring guide into place.

Not familiar with glock series, but is there a safety mechanism?

The safety mechanism is a little latch where the bottom rail space is. It slides back and forth.

the slide assembly is pushed down without me needing to do so. The slide won't budge forwards or backwards

try pulling the spring guide forward, see if it moves or is jammed, to me it looks like the slide was installed with the barrel not properly in battery

also where are you located?

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

The spring guide can be pulled forwards.
I'm in the UK (I apologise, I'm not Canadian, you guys just have the best airsoft forums).

It sounds like the spring guide isn't catching onto the barrel grouping... Not sure where to go from there. All I can say is do NOT force it, try to wiggle it around. If you get frustrated, take 10 minutes to take a breather and try again. Worst you can do is lose your cool and end up brute forcing it and breaking it.

Last resort: take it back to the store you bought it from and ask for assistance. Do not tell them you disassembled it unless they ask you.

Wiggling the spring guide?

The recoil spring guide is the black protruding piece of plastic under the barrel (under the golden barrel in your gun).

The recoil spring guide should be seated in the barrel grouping where the "metal block" (the name escapes me) seats into the disassembly lever. The recoil spring guide could be preventing the block from being properly seated since it's out of place. It doesn't appear to be at an angle so it could just be caught on something. Good luck!

Yes, thank you.

Remember to disengage the safety because that can also prevent the slide from going into battery in some guns.

Thanks for all the help.
Been working on it every now and then. Status hasn't changed, exactly in the same position as I started. I'm gonna keep trying for a day or two, if all fails, i'll take it to an airsoft specialist shop. I'll try keep y'all updated.
Thanks again, for all the quick replies and you've made me a fan and now user of this forum.
