The plunger moves past the catch just fine, the catch just won't hold the plunger tube.
Pictures would be helpful. I'd say you just epoxied in the way of the plunger rod or spring so it can't get back into catching position by less than a millimeter. It explains why you hear a click, because it starts to catch, but can't go the full length to finish.

I have identified the problem:
Quite helpful there. Not everyone makes or wants homemade blasters that shoot 100+ feet.
As for the catch... Why did you reinforce it to begin with? If the plastic hasn't cracked you should just scrape off all you the excess you put on it to begin with and see if that fixes the problem.

I was trying to make it so I could add a stronger spring. I wanted to make a stronger Maverick without making a Nite-Mav. Scraping the epoxy off would fix the problem, but it would put me back at square one with a catch that can't handle a stronger spring.

I disagree with that statement. In my experience the catch bends under stress from a stronger catch spring. I could be wrong though, I'll try that again.
The catches aren't that weak. The only reason people penny mod them instead of adding more springs is because they're lazy. The catch is fine, but you will need a stronger catch spring.
