If you're talking normal field strip, put the barrel in, the part that rests near the gas cylinder should merge with the cylinder when you push the inner barrel all the way back. Scrunch up your spring, put it in the gun and rest the spring over the barrel, and onto the notch of the inner barrel, pushing down part 327. When sliding the slide back onto the frame, hold the recoil spring in place with all your fingers, sliding the slide to the frame upside down. Each time the slide hits your finger, slowly remove a finger and continue sliding the slide onto the frame. Once your pinky is the last finger, remove that finger and quickly slide the rest of the slide home. Then, holding the slide back, engage the slide lick mechanism back into place. This will retain your slide in place.
