    Any tricks to keeping the barrel link in place when reassembling to get the slide stop back in correctly?

    It's fairly a cake maneuver......unless you have the magazine installed. This would give the impression of the link not lining up when in fact, it's lined just fine.

    Ok got to order one of those lol. I was showing my wife the process and was not paying as much attention as i should, and yep i got an idiot scratch. Luckily it was on a citadel witch i kinda plan on shooting the crap out of anyway. But when your wife is looking at you asking why did you do that. Well it just happens lol.
