L96 not locking when cocked back

Hey guys,
I bought the l96 upgrade kit and I took it apart like I usually do, fitted it all together... Everything handy dandy but now I have a problem, it seems like the bolt does not want to cock back all the way it's like something is stopping it, what have I don't wrong and how do I fix it? Please send help

Pull it all apart and try again.
There is a number of things you may have done wrong.
First reinstall the piston and spring and spring guide as the spring may not be on the spring guide

Tons of possibilities. One of the silliest causes for me was a scope rail bolt touching the cylinder JUST ENOUGH to have an effect. I turned it an 8th if a turn and it allowed the piston to latch.

I had the same issue and was the trigger U pin. When i assembled the parts was all fine but with a few shots that pin went down and when i tried to cocking the bolt doesn't catch with that pin, i put some electrical tape around the bottom of the pin to prevent it goes down. Then i replaced the well metal trigger box for an Airsoftpro one and never get that problem again. Good luck with that. Srry about my English.
