I had trouble cocking it the other day and thought maybe I had broken the spring. Tried a few more times and it seemed fine. So today I took it apart (1st time I've disassembled a 97), checked and the spring was fine so put it back together and now I can't uncock it. The trigger seems to be blocked until I return the lever to the closed position. Ideas?
Update: Am I losing my mind? I took the stock off and...

...I don't see any way the trigger CAN be pulled when the under lever is unlatched because there is a little sprung safety device that slides rearward and interferes with the trigger during cocking.
So, am I missing something? I am sure I used to be able to un-cock the gun. Maybe it was malfunctioning before and the safety device was hung up until I took the gun apart. I am no expert on air gun repair, but I have had my share of HW's apart to rebuild....just never an under lever.
Someone with experience with these please weigh in and set my mind straight.
With the stock off, you can see the antibeartrap plate assembly under the round lug bolt in front of the trigger. When the lever is pulled back,the cocking link pushes the plate into the trigger assembly, blocking the trigger.
