It shows the screw in the top of the slide just in front of the rear sight. Problem is, there is no screw in the top of my slide, or anywhere else in close proximity to the firing pin that I can find.
Am I just blind or did they change the way this comes apart from what the manual says? BTW mine is a 25XXX.
Mine has a serial number starting with 019xxx and it's the same as you describe, but the manual is also like yours. At some point in the near past the slide was redesigned to either remove the firing pin retainer screw or to relocate it to a hidden location, possibly unter the rear sight (don't know, haven't checked). The one email I sent to Sccy after getting mine to clearify this question went unanswered about removing the firing pin. Since removal hasn't been needed yet, I haven't been too concerned about who would need to do it since it doesn't appear I can.
