Was cleaning my Springfield 1911 a-1 Loaded Model the other day after taking her out to the range, and while I was cleaning the exterior of the barrel, the barrel link pin came out and the link came off. I was able to reinstall the link and pin with just my hands....is this something I should be worried about? Anyone have this happen before Should I take her to the gunsmith? Thanks in advance!

It shouldn't cause any problems, but you can peen the ends a little to keep it in place.

Use a prick punch to tighten up the hole on both sides. One "hit" per side should be enough.
