    Buddy had a Glock 17 that bound up, just like this. In his case if I recall, he had it field stripped and put it back together and hand racked it back when it happened.

    I spent hours working on it trying to get it disassembled. It was frustrating. I don’t know what finally did the trick. Lots of beating and prying until I was able to get it.

    In the end, I believe the barrel guide rod and barrel notch skipped and bound the firearm up.

    Best of luck to you.
