A coaxial connector (100) having a coupling nut (12) freely rotatable therearound has a rear stop defined by the forward end (152) of a retention sleeve (150) placed along the central section (128) of the outer conductive shell (120). The retention sleeve rearward end (160) defines a forward stop for a crimping ferrule (196) placed over the reduced diameter rearward shell section (134) and trapping an end of a shielding braid (184) therebetween to be crimped. The retention sleeve includes a rearward section (156) having an inner diameter incrementally less than the outer diameter of the central section (128) of the outer conductive shell so that the retention sleeve (150) is force fittable thereonto and self-retains thereon. A method of assembly includes pushing the retention sleeve forwardly onto the central shell section until the annular tool work end (172) abuts the rearwardly facing surface (144) defined between the central shell section (128) and the reduced diameter rearward shell section (134), thereby precisely positioning the retention sleeve along the outer conductive shell (120).
