    Did you replace the dark slide? As I recall if the dark slide was removed (or not fully seated) the back could not be removed.

    Haven't touched one in 7 years though, so memories are vague.

    I used a Pola back on the P1 AF body recently.

    As Doug mentioned, make sure the dark slide is in and fully seated. It's a total pain in the @$$ to get in though due to the grip being in the way.

    Also, it tends to bind a little. Press the back in towards the body while pressing the release. Sometimes that helps.

    Loved using mine but it was defintely an afterthought (if at all) when the AFDIII/P1AF was made.
