    I've been lead to believe that if you shoot 50-75 rounds through it, it'll disassemble itself!

    I dont routinely work on these, so lets see if I remember correctly.

    Start with an unloaded gun. Remove the magazine. At the rear of the gun, press the takedown latch forward (roundish piece the end of the firing pin sticks though to indicate its loaded). You should be able to lift the rear of the slide then move it and the recoil spring forward off the frame.

    i admit to having had one of these once.. and i remember a disassembly procedure simular to that Doc said..but i think you can once the gun is empty and mag is out, pointed in a safe direction of course.. pull the slide back all the way and lift up on the back end... then slide it all off the front of the barrel... been about 8 years or so since i played with one though so my memory could be faulty.. hope this helps..
