SR22 guide rod and spring stuck

Just took down and cleaned and reassembled my SR22. I always disassemble it again, and thus time my guide rod and spring are stuck in the hole in the frame. I can't get it to come out. The gun goes back together and strips fine. Will this cause any problems? Any ideas how to get it out or is it okay to leave it stuck in there?

Can't imagine why it would be stuck. I would want to find out so I could determine if it is bigger issue.

Good luck.

Not sure either. It just won't come out of the hole. As I was reassembleing I put the guide rod and spring in the hole and made sure the spring was properly seated on the rod. Now it won't come back out when I disassemble the gun. Everything seems to be working normal, the gun goes back together fine. Now its just like I have a fixed guide rod and spring. Dunno.

That seems very odd to me. My rod and spring generally pop out or get pulled out with the slide. Does the rod pivot or rotate? I would think it would have to pivot or you could ot get the slide off and on again. Can you get a photo? Is the take down lever intact and operating properly?

Could you have possibly inserted the wider end of the spring into the hole? I don't know if the wide end is big enough to get stuck. The smaller diameter side of the spring goes on the rod and into the hole. Did you try backing the rod and spring out by unscrewing it counter clockwise?

I was thinking of suggesting that as well or maybe somehow the spring broke or went over the end of the rod but the OP indicated that the slide otherwise goes on and off properly which seems unlikely if the rod was backwards unlesss you are thinking that only the spring was backwards in which case the small end might come though or get stuck in the hole in the slide. But yes if the spring was installed with the large end at the rear then I can see how it might have gone over the end of the rod and gotten jammed or bound or stuck in some way in the frame making it difficult to extract from the frame.

Thanks for the help guys. Got it out with the help of some oil and a small screw driver. My dumb self put the spring on backwards. LOL Guess it wedged in and got stuck. Got it back together correctly this time. I can't belive I did that. Not like I haven't taken it apart and reassembled it before. Haha Wonder if it would of made a difference with the spring backwards since it seemed to work right. Thanks again, now after about an hour of cuzzing it, now I can laugh at myself.

After reading your thread I went in and disassembled mine to be sure it wasn't stuck. Mine's OK. Really I just wanted an excuse to handle a gun.

I know what you mean daviscc, after I got the SR22 fixed, I disassembled and cleaned my SR9c just for the heck of it. Haha
