Not sure what the problem is,but when trying to get at the slide retainer pin,the slide won't go back far enough to lock it back
and therefore I cannot get to the pin.Is there a way to disassemble it in another way so I can see what exactly the problem is?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/help.

Got my new C9 yesterday and had the same problem, I put a jewlers screwdriver behind the safety to get an xtra 8 or 10,000 of an in. and removed the pin easily, after removing the slide, I used the dremel and small grinder tool to elongate the slide notch to get to the pin, it worked, and I shot it 80 times today, no problem now to take the pin out. Used a black permanant marker to blacken the elongated notch. Jim <><

I bought it used,and was able to get to the pin when I cleaned it out the first time.
I have fired off a few hundred rounds and re-cleaned it.Now the slide won't go back
far enough to get at the pin again.

I guess I may have buggered something up when putting it back together the second time. :undecided:

Was hoping there was another way to disassemble without having to get at the slide pin.

When I got my C-9 used a few months ago I had the exact same problem with the slide not going all the way to the rear. I sent mine back to Hi-Point to fix a few other things with a note about the slide. Nothing was done about it, so i guess I may be a normal thing.

I think you may have put the sear in backwards when reassembling.
Take the right side grip off. Use a flat screw driver, and push down on the sear cam.
(this may be difficult) while holding the sear cam down, try to push/pull the slide back.
The safety probably wont go up into the slide lock, so you may have to have someone knock the slide retainer pin out while you hold the slide back.
It is a pain in the rear, but that's how it's done.

I had the same problem when I got my C9 last winter. Just did a little filing in the slide and it works fine now.
