You will probably have to "PUSH" the bolt back forward with the barrel still removed. You did have the trigger installed when you tried to lock the bolt back and install the barrel correct? I am looking at mine right now, can you post a pic of where it is stuck from the bottom and the side and we can probably help you out.
