When placing the roll pins back in, try to have the 'slits' 180 degrees from each other for the most strength. The roll pins are recommended as single use items, are you installing new roll pins when you reassemble?

Armorer's DVD shows it being tapped in with a plastic or Brass mallet, Start it with the more rolled end first if it is distinguishable. May take some good smacks if it is new. Position the big one first then tap in the smaller one. It appears that both the pins are positioned in the slide just short of the breech block then the slide is placed over the breech block. Holding the assembly in place, lay it on its side, make sure things are lined up, then smack away.
