Ditto. The barrel link in a 1911 HAS to move, or the gun won't work. However, some barrel links are tighter than others at both the barrel end and the slide stop end. That probably depends a lot on both tolerance stacking and wear, but as long as the link doesn't fall out of the barrel when you take the barrel out of the slide (and I've seen some that would do that), you should be good to go. A little looseness doesn't hurt anything.
