Slide and barrel too far back when slip stop inserted

Just bought a Micro 9 and had it at the range today. Put 50 rounds through so i sat down to clean it. Got it disassemble and cleaned up. When putting it back together, i inadverantly pushed the barrel too far back while holding the slide back and inserted the stop pin. Now the slide will not go forward and the barrel just free floats.

How can i remove the stop pin when i am not able to align it up with the slide stop align place on the slide?

Finally figured it out. I pushed the barrel back with the slide. That allowed it not to jam again the slide. Then i was able to move the entire slide and barrel forward to the alignment stop location.
Nellybelle and starnovi like this.

Glad you got it squared away. I guess I take the Micro for granted since I spent so much time with various SIG 938s. The barrel can be a little tricky at first or after a long break from the pistol.
