Don’t feel bad, that happened to me also. The first time I removed the striker assembly it went back without a problem (lucky I guess), the next time is when it wouldn’t go. It took me several try’s before I finally realized what the problem was.
I look at it this way; now we are that much more familiar with our gun.
