Can't Get New Vortex Ram Piston Seal to Fit..

Yesterday I attempted to replace the piston seal on my Hatsan Striker Vortex due to a recent 75 fps loss in velocity. The stock piston seal had a pretty tight fit in the rear of the compression chamber as I was taking it out. I attempted to replace the Hatsan seal with a Maccari seal, but once fitted onto the piston, I could not get it to fit into the compression chamber - the seal was just too large. After getting it into the chamber a short distance I saw that it was not going to work and had to remove it, damaging the seal in the process.

Any suggestions on what I should do? Can a piston seal be resized somehow to fit into the chamber on my particular rifle?

Thanks, gentlemen.
