    Can some one tell me how the slide is removed on a Mak IJ-70 9mm. Need to clean it and haven't found the right button to push.

    Thanks in advance.

    Never mind, I found the magic phrase to release the Mak slide.

    I pulled the trigger while I had the slide shoved back, and off it came. :celebrate

    Can't fool me, I'm too stupid! :P

    My bulgarian mak can be difficult sometimes...I can get it off no problem but sometimes it just won't go back on easily...so I found that lightly wapping against a padded surface (such as a carpeted floor ) gets the slide to seat properly without harming the gun or finish. Sometimes I have to think like a Russian to solve problems

    It rained today, so the boss decided that we'd have a gun cleaning day.

    Tapped a bullet out of the barrel of a .22LR SA Colt and cleaned. The squib fire happened on me a couple weeks ago during gun safety course rnage shooting.

    Finally got the slide off the Mak IJ-70 and cleaned it.

    Cleaned his 7.65 (.32 cal) Nazi made Saurer that has the Eagle stamps with "N" below. Had a heck of a time getting the slide back "on" this one. It just didn't want to go down into the track right. I finally figured out to take my thumb and push the hammer down into the fully cocked position before installing the slide. Went right in.

    Cleaned a few others, turning a rather damp day into good day.

    Mak, PA63, P64 and CZ82 all have similar slide releases. Make sure the Mak spring goes back on correctly.
