It has been quite a while since I've seen one of those things . At the right rear of the frame there should be a screw. You need to get a screw driver and while pushing in the screw turn it clockwise (if I remember correctly). Once you've done that you can remove the slide from the frame. Give that a try. I deleted your second and identical thread on this subject.

Mark, Thanks for the come-back and the delete of the 2nd message.(wasnt sure what i was doing there) I looked and there is no screw at the rear of the frame. The only other screws are on the sights for adjustments. I have removed the grips and there is nothing there to give me a clue.
Hey Hugs..Mark's on the right track.. You shouldn't remove that front slotted "screw".. That's the slide lock.. When it's proud of the frame, it's locked.. You need to push it in then turn it to the right to lock it below the frame surface..
With the hammer cocked, and the magazine out, pull the slide to the rear, lifting up until it clears.. Now push the slide forward and off..
