The spring guide bears against the vertical step in the frame designed to hold it there.
Not with the slide and barrel assembly removed from the frame along with the recoil system as a unit.

Think of reassembling it the usual way after a field strip.

When the recoil spring guide and the spring go in, the rear face of the guide flange is against the front of the lower barrel lug.
