Did you read the owners manual? I'd like to help but, I have no idea what you are talking about and your pictures are not there. Did you force the recoil assembly into the frame before the barrel and with out the locking block? When you say the rest of the pistol is still apart is where you really lost me. There would be only four parts for a basic field strip: 1. The barrel; 2. The frame; 3. The recoil assembly; 4. The locking block.
