Micro 380 Take Down Lever

When taking the Micro 380 down for cleaning and then putting it back together, do ya’ll have trouble getting that little take down lever back in place. Takes hubby and I both to get it back, one of us holding the slide back and one of us jiggling that little lever in till it clicks. Please tell me it gets easier with more experience.

Definitely worth the money until you get use to doing it without the aid of a tool.

FYI the take down lever you're referring to is called the "slide release".

You should be able to get the hang of it with practice. Once you get it down it's simple. Be careful with the ejector, that spring loaded piece back by the safety. It needs to be depressed slightly (just a hair) to allow the slide to be installed. Pushing it too far down can knock it out of wack and be a PITA to reset.
Good luck...

Thanks to all. I recently got a S&W Shield EZ that is EZ on everything, including take down/reassemble. I may gift that pretty Kimber to hubby.

It's really not that hard once you do it a few times. Just take your time and you will be amazed how easy it is....

Good luck and congrats to the hubby.....
