How to Field Strip a Smith & Wesson 3913 TSW Pistol

Save

The Smith and Wesson 3913 TSW was originally designed to replace law-enforcement revolvers with a semi-auto handgun. The 3913 is a 9 mm pistol that carries a 9-round capacity magazine, making it perfect for law-enforcement applications. Like all pistols, the 3913 can be "field stripped" to its primary components for quick cleaning and repairs.

  • Depress the magazine release button and clear the chamber of any ammunition.

  • Rotate the manual safety lever to "fire."

  • Grab the frame and slide with your left hand. Place your right hand on the grip.

  • Apply pressure with the left and right hands in opposite directions until the slide stop notch aligns with the rounded portion of the slide stop.

  • Press in on the slide stop pin with your hand.

  • Allow the slide to move forward to the closed position. Pull the slide forward until it releases from the frame.

  • Pull forward on the recoil spring under the slide until it releases. Pull out the barrel.
