Had to ask. Remove the sear spring and try pulling back on the bolt. If you do not feel anything, tear it down and put it back together.

Just took the end cap off and put the new spring in and then screwed the adjuster screw back in the end ...also replaced all screws with the allen head screws....Didnt think I needed to touch the trigger ? ... Thanks for your help..

Did you maybe turn the adjuster screw in too far?

I plink, therefore I am.

I see that you installed a pressure adjuster assembly.

Try backing off the rear breech screw about a turn and try cocking. Sometimes the rear breech screw, if a tiny bit long, can catch and bind the hammer spring causing cocking problems.

If that does not work, remove the hammer spring guide (if you got one of those). Reinstall and try to cock. This is a guess, but the guide may be interfering with pulling the hammer back all the way back.

It's easier to remove length than adding it. That will be fine for a Disco or maybe a 2260, but then you can just to trim the spring guide down a little for the 2240 & 2250.

My thought was the guide was providing too much preload on the spring. If the spring was a tad long adding the additional length of the guide head might create a situation where you could not draw the hammer far enough back to cock the gun.
