Default Help with a Model 2206

I have a model 2206 with 6" barrel and adjustable sights. It is a great shooter and very accurate. The last time I took it out everything was normal. Shoot 100 or so rounds. Cleaned and tested it, put it back in the safe.
When I got it out to shoot last week the slide is locked up solid. It doesn't even wiggle. Locked the slide in a gun vice to really put some pressure on the spring, but nothing, would not budge. Any one have any experience with this condition? Any ideas on the cause? If I can't get the slide to move I can't tear the gun down. I have taken the grips off, none of the safety or slide release assembly is locked up. I took it to my gun smith, he's stumped too.

What did you lube it with before you put it away? And how long ago was that?

I've never seen this one before.

Start with a very good cleaning, spray cleaner into the magwell up towards the slide.

This is one of several things.

The hammer is stuck.

The recoil spring is somehow snagged and stuck.

The slide is stuck to the frame due to some old lube, etc.

You sure there isn't an old casing or round that could be stuck in the chamber?

Regardless I would start with cleaning, even a good soak, maybe some judicious heat(heat gun, not torch).

Us a flashlight and check the magwell for anything that looks out of place.

Once you are certain there isn't a round in it, try a dowel down the barrel and GENTLE taps with a SMALL mallet.

Your profile indicates "N arkansas", I'm in NWA regularly for business, if you are in that area I would be happy to look at it.

Just in case you really need to dig into it:

Actually, this has happened to me.

I blame it on an oily, empty round in the chamber. I put one in there each time in order to dry fire it safely before medium-term or long-term storage -- it acts as a snap-cap.

The oil acts hydraulically against the walls of the chamber, making the round "stick" in the chamber. It can be VERY hard to move the slide.

This has actually happened twice.

Default I figured it out.

After removing the grips, I took off the safety and slide release, side plate. I could see there was no blockage or broken pieces. I was able to use a small dowel rod to drive the slide back enough to do the disassembly process and get the recoil spring out. I remembered that during the previous cleaning I used a dab of loctite on the mounting screw for the sights. When I tested it after cleaning the loctite hadn't set up so the slide worked fine. After setting in the safe the loctite migrated to the round slide guide and dried. I remove the loctite, lubed the slide, reassembled. All this because I didn't use enough care in applying the loctite. I guess you have to be smarter than the machine to operate it.
