Ok, so I just got a new p-3at last week & decided to disassemble it today to get it ready for the first trip to the range.  I removed the assembly pin & tried pushing the barrel back as it said & the tried to pull the slide off the frame, but it would not come off.  So, I assumed that maybe it is similar to another pistol I have, and cannot be removed until the trigger is pulled.  So I pulled the trigger and the slide came easily off...the problem now however, it that the hammer is down and I cannot seem to get it put back up?  Did I brake my new gun already?  Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to KTOG.

Lets hope you didn't break any thing ;)

with the hammer fired, the slide will NOT go back on. since as the hammer arcs as you push the slide on, it binds with the firing pin.

the answer, take your thumb and reset the hammer. thumb it all the way back then as you ease off, the hammer should stay about straight up
