Rampage priming issues

I'm still in FNG status so my ability to reply is limited, I can take pictures and edit them into this post if anyone needs or wants them.

My first thought was that it goes in the magwell, but there is nowhere for it to go in there that I could find. I took apart my magwell so I could paint the button separately but couldn't get any detailed pictures of how the parts went in because everything flew out after the screws were removed. I couldn't find any pictures online of magwell internals, but I tried every possible way I could think of to fit this piece in with no success. The magwell seems to work without it however, which leads me to believe its from the inside of the blaster somewhere. I haven't been able to find it in any pictures of rampage internals though, and honestly I don't have a clue where it would go. Can one of you more experienced modders help me identify this?
Right now the magwell is not attached to the gun which I suspect is causing the priming issue. But I want to know more about this piece first before I put it back on because detaching the magwell is a pain in the butt.

(PS: Thanks SGNerf, you're awesome)
You can see it wrapped around the vertical sliding breech gate - there should be a screw well in the case for a screw to go in that will hold it down. It's most likely just under the metal rod in that picture. It's not a critical piece but it does guide the breech gate up and down which might prevent some jams and the like. Hope that helps.

(to rephrase, I know that the rampage has the lock, but it dosent look like the one in the raider based on the picture, so it may have been redesigned and is no longer a problem area)

As for the priming issue, I had a piece inside the magwell flipped the wrong way so the magazine lock wasn't unlocking. I should have taken some pictures of those internals but I didn't think about it till after it was already reassembled. Thank you everyone for the help! Here's the finished blaster:
Retaliator stock, and AR removed. Paint job was inspired by Black_Chrome's awesome raider in the paint job thread. Kind of the reverse of his with some metallic red thrown in to spice things up.
