Default Any good gunsmith in the Bay Area?

Had a bad experience at the range today. Shooting a SA 1911 9mm target. Fired a shot but didnít eject. I checked the barrel and the shell was still in the barrel. I removed the mag closed the slide and pulled the trigger. It clicked. Then tried pulling the slide back and thatís when it got stuck. Tried and tried. Nothing even the RO tried by putting the rear sight against the table and pushed. Nothing. Had a friendly shooter next to me try and nothing also. He knew a th8ng or two on 1911 and tried disassembling it by removing the barrel bushing and recoil guide rod and spring. Still nothing.

So, if anyone can recommend a good gunsmith, it would be much appreciated.

Try knocking the slide back with a heavy rubber mallet.

Can you get the slide off the frame?

Can you get the slide back far enough to remove the firing pin retaining plate? Then remove the firing pin. Then Tap/Punch the bullet out with a rod.

Where these reloads? Were they not sized correctly for the barrel?

Did you try looking for a squib? If you put a pencil down the barrel how far does it go down?

If there is a squib that lock up the barrel, then yea, you will basically have to cut the slide stop in half and you can take it down from there.

Oh, re-read your post.

So there is no LIVE ammo, just the CASE.

Then you are probably golden. Brass Rod, and wood mallet and tap it out.

Also, what I do in a pinch at the range is put the front of the slide against a solid table. Right at the recoil plug, and below the barrel bushing then SHOVE the frame FORWARD with the slide up against the table. That usually gives me a lot more leverage.
