Slide jams

Hi everyone.Im new to 1911s.I own a Kimber Custom Two.
I took the gun to the range and loved it.The problem I'm having is if I remove the slide to clean the gun,when I replace it on the frame,It will hit a pin.It just jams up it.Its the pin that I think is part of the safety.It sticks up above the frame.I hate to force it,but it takes some pushing to get the slide to the rear.Am I doing something wrong?

Been there done this, make sure hand is off grip safety and the one pin is down, hammer cocked. Welcome aboard to the forum too. Let us know how it goes, don't forget to post pics of that bad azz Kimber!

Make sure when you put slide stop back in that you push straight in and not push and slide up, you will get the famous "idiot scratch"

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Branson69. Hoffbrew nailed it, don't depress the grip safety when you reinstall the slide.

Yes, Yes and Yes. What they said. Don't touch the grip safety.

Real men don't read manuals.We just get shot in the foot a lot.Page 67 in the manual says keep your greasy hands off the grip safety.
Thanks guys.
