    First, remove the clip (magazine) from the grip. Second, cycle the slide to eject any shell that might be in the chamber. Third, holding the pistol in your right hand with your thumb behind the backstrap, hold the slide back about 1/4", so the clear cut in the slide will allow the slide release lever to be pushed right to left out of the frame. Fourth, slide the slide, barrel and recoil spring/guide assembly forward off the frame. Fifth, holding the slide in your right hand, slightly push the recoil spring guide forward and lift up and pull back to relieve tension on the spring. Remove this part completely from the slide. Sixth, push the barrel with your finger through the ejection port and slide the barral forward a little bit to clear the locking groves. Then pull the barrel back, clear of the slide.

    Because of the design of the S&W 39/439/908, you do not want to strip the frame and action down. This is as far as you should go. To reassemble the pistol, just reverse the process that I gave you.
