Forgive me for my ignorance with some terms...

I'm having issues with my Firearms International 270 win with a Mauser style bolt. I was cleaning the gun to test its accuracy for the upcoming season and while removing the bolt I accidentally let the safety come down.

I was able to use the catching piece on the bolt plug to re-engage the safety. At this point I took the bolt apart and put it back together. The issue I'm running into is when I try to re-insert the bolt with the safety in the middle position the bolt plug is preventing me from re-insert (catching on the stock). When I move the safety to the full lock position I can re-insert the bolt but I can't get the safety to disengage or the hammer to come down.

I've looked over YouTube and the internet quite a bit and haven't been able to find a fix. Hoping someone here might have gone through the same issue. I feel I'm either missing something very simple or I might have re-assembled the bolt incorrectly.

I'm attaching some pictures. Thanks in advance.
