Just the other day, I was modifing my longshot. I took everything out so I could spraypaint it. Once I had everything back in and it screwed back together, I tried to pull the bolt back and it was stuck. I had to force it back (probably shouldn't have done that) to get it back to catch. O ther than that it works fine. I can imagine I'm not the only person that this has happened to. If you guys have any suggestions or even just a solution, I would like to here it. Please.

It's probably misplaced. Can you show us a pic?

Yes, pics would be nice. Anyway, you probably were right in saying that you shouldn't have forced it. I should be ble to help you further with pics.

This is a common problem with modded longshots. I've opened up my LS many a time and have never gotten it fixed. You're just going to have to get used to priming it on the left side.

He speaks the truth.

Yeah, the same thing happened to me. I try as hard as I can to prime my modded LS with my right hand and doesn't work. However, I switch hands and I can.

I've had this happen to me. In my experience, and I have no real science to back this up, it's just luck. Either you get it right or you don't. Best way to make sure is to put it together, leave the screws out, and try priming it while holding the blaster together.

Trial and error is how I fixed mine.

This also happen to me. I took out all safeties except the bolt lock. I ground down the bolt at the end where the bolt catches on the lock. Now, I can prime it left or right handed. You may just want to take out the bolt lock, but I wanted extra support for the bolt.

I can't really say if this is your problem, because the bolt lock isn't in your pic. However, it worked for me. I hope this helps!

I had a similar problem with my newest LS actually. I decided to take a smart route with it and instead of simply slamming the bolt back every time to cock it (thus taking extra time and reducing my firing rate) I took a 3/16"x1 1/2" rubber washer (trimmed of course) and super glued it to the front of my plunger head as a shim. It also has the added bonus (if properly trimmed) of making the seal better and cushioning the plunger head.

That's my two cents worth, hope someone finds it useful.

EDIT: Judging from your pictures, your plunger tube is misaligned. There's a prong on the right side and a corresponding socket in the shell that it goes into. If it's not correctly installed, it won't cock.

Make sure that:

The little nob on the back of the plunger housing is aligned in the circle on the shell. It appears you have it right, but that is the leading cause of these kinds of issues.

Make sure that the screws on the back of the plunger housing are in all the way.

Make sure the catch is pushed all the way against the right half the shell. otherwise, it will be harder to catch on the right side when you prime it.

I had a similar problem, and I think it may have to do with a small white peice that connects to the small part on the back of the bolt. Another fix is to not put in some screws near the back of the gun. The bolt sled is catching on the shell, and removing screws will let the shell move slightly to get out of the way.
