    Hi guys, first post and first time gun owner. My first post was going to be later today after i came back from shooting my sw99 the first time but i ran into a small problem.
    I bought a police trade in sw99 in 40cal and have already field stripped it and cleaned it. Im affraid i wasnt paying attention when i was cleaning it and over lubed it. Might of gotten some oil in the striker housing. Read that it was bad for the gun and could cause malfunctions on the range, which ill be going to in afew hours. Ive googled it and almost everything ive come across either says not to do it, its hard or has a broken link. Ive downloaded 2 versions of the sw99 owners manual and it only talks about field stripping it, which is easy and i already know how to do that. If anyone could help me with a link, pics or something. I just want my first trip out to the range to be a good one with this gun.
    THank you

    Buy a can of gun scrugbber and flush it out.
    Then blow dry with compressed air.

    Are you asking how to remove the striker? Look at the back of the slide, just above where the striker indicator is. There's a small square-ish piece that's separate from the back plate. Press that in with a punch and slide the plate down. The striker will just lift out with that plate removed.

    All i did was field strip it and let the slide sit upright and the fame upside down onto of a towel. Wiped off any oil that had oozed out, which wasnt much. Had no problems at the range. Just a new gun owner over thinking i guess.
