Default cocking hook question

I guess it's called the cocking hook. I just got the barrel back from being rust blued and can't get it to lock into the receiver. I try to close it and it stops in just a little bit . If I remove the piece from the barrel that looks like a backwards letter C that is spring loaded it will go down in the receiver. I don't claim to be a gunsmith, but I've had quite a few guns apart without a lot of trouble. I just can't see how it's suppose to close and or hook on something. The area down in the receiver has a shinny piece slopping down, that I can lift the front of and it rotates around a screw coming in from the side of the receiver and it pulls a plate sliding forward in the bottom of the receiver. There are two tinny slots in it with small bumps sticking out. Anyways, this piece seems to be in the way of the cocking hook . I just don't see what the hook should or can hook on to. Any help would be appreciated. I hope what I've described makes sense.

Sounds like the cocking hook wes reinstalled backwards.

Yes. You would have thought I'd just look at one of my Parker SxSs. I had tried to turn it around but it wouldn't go in the slot. I just had to slide it back a little more and Bingo - in it went. Ah, now to sneak over to the trap range and try it out. Sometimes it pays to be the chairman of shotgun.
