Bolt not able to be pulled to the rear and locked after installing two finger charging handle with lock

I bought and installed the two finger charging handle with lock. Now when I attempt to pull the bolt to the rear and lock, I can’t. Does anyone have this same issue?

@Tupper If you are using the bolt buffer that we call the "life saver"on the rear of the recoil spring it may not be centered in the hole.

@tupper along with what @Don68 said, you should also make sure the tool-less locking pin is seated properly into the charging handle.

@ Tupper, One of the answers above is the solution. I’d bet locking pin not seated if you have it.

I will 3rd that nomination.
Happened to me a couple times.
