A method of assembling an electrical connector that includes an outer conductor body, an inner conductor and a resilient and deformable insulating sleeve. The method includes providing a bore in the rigid outer conductor body having an inwardly directed substantially annular ridge extending therefrom defining a minimum bore diameter of the outer connector body. A bore is provided in the insulating sleeve along with a substantially annular recess in the outer surface of the sleeve. The maximum diameter of the insulating sleeve is provided greater than the minimum bore diameter of the outer conductor body when the insulating sleeve is at a rest position. The next step is inserting the insulating sleeve into the bore of the rigid outer conductor body to a position in which the rigid outer conductor body ridge is in alignment with the insulating sleeve recess. During insertion, the insulating sleeve is radially compressed by the annular ridge of the bore of the outer conductor body, to a smaller diameter than the rest position thereof. Finally, the inner conductor is inserted into the insulating sleeve bore to radially expand the insulating sleeve to assist in moving the insulating sleeve back towards its rest position diameter.
