Well I did it. Accidentally pressed the grip safety when reinstalling my slide. Slide is stuck. Won't move in either direction. Plenty of tips on how to avoid this problem but little on how to unstuck the slide. Darn Swartz guy! Does it have to go back to Kimber?

This may help. Atleast I hope it's O.K. to post a link to a different forum. If not, mods, forgive me and delete.

Does your Aegis have the “II” designation after the name? If it’s a newer Aegis it does not have the Swartz safety.

Call Kimber.
I did the same thing with my Ultra Carry II.
I freaked out.
After a few minutes on the phone a Kimber rep related technical instructions from a tech who said "Hold it upright and whack the back of the slide with your hand."

It worked and I havent had a single issue since.

I'm not suggesting whacking the slide.
Let a Kimber tech suggest it.

I shit you not.
That is exactly what the tech said.
It worked.
We all had a good laugh about it.
I was happy the new gun didnt have to go back to Kimber.

I smacked mine with a rubber hammer. I did the same thing, but it was on a Custom II. I learned not to do that again. Fortunately no real harm done.. Coming from series 70's there is a bit of a learning curve.. PS: It also does that if you try to reassemble it upside down.. just a thought
