I have a original Maverick JS 9mm Made by Stallard Arms. My question is will a slide off a Stallard JS 9mm made after Mossberg cought up with Stallard and the Maverick TM work on my Maverick frame? I'm not talking HiPoint , I'm talking Stallard Arms the gun made in a garage! Might not be collectable but it's rare, unfortunately my slide on the Maverick broke a big chunk off the side shooting in the winter a few years ago. It was my Dads gun so I'd like to get it safe and functional again. Unfortunately
no gunsmith in my area will touch it. So I'm gonna see if I can fix it myself. I have been watching ebay and see slides available.... Any input or information is appreciated!

Welcome aboard. Yes, the Maverick JS 9mm and the Stallard JS9 are the same gun and parts will interchange.
If you get stuck, we can help you. Lots of experienced folks here.

Thank you! I really appreciate the help!
Numrich has a Stallard / Maverick schematic.

While pointed in a safe direction, pull the slide back to verify the gun is empty. Release the slide and pull the trigger to release the tension on the firing pin. Then pull the slide back, and punch out pin #8, lift upward to free the "dolls head" #7, and you should be good.
The trick is keeping the slide back far enough. I've used a flat headed screw driver and stuck it between the slide and the safety #12. Inevitably the screwdriver pops out of place and the slide slaps back, so don't be surprised if that happens to you.

I reassembled the Maverick JS 9mm with the ebay stallard arms slide, have not had a chance to test fire as of yet. Thank you everyone for the information provided here! My dad would be happy knowing this piece of firearm history can now be safely passed down to another generation when the time comes. And another question what ammo is ok to feed this thing? last time i shot it was 4 years ago and i was shooting dads left over service rounds, cant remember the brand, but im assuming they were hot rounds with the slide busting a huge chunck out of the front of it. Is this a common problem with this style blowback guns? I have used cheap wolf fmj steel casings just fine before, my need is a good personal defense round that cycle properly and not bust my slide. It was 15deg outside in the middle of winter when the slide broke if that makes a difference. I see a HiPoint C9 in my near future as well.

It's a Hi Point. They usually like hot ammo, but they ain't picky. Most 9mm HP will eat whatever you feed it and enjoy the process.
