Hello all. Recently purchased a SIG P226 used. When I received it, the magazine release button had been moved to the right side of the frame. Having heard that it was an easy switch, I tried to do it myself, and have royally screwed up. During the reassembly process, I apparently inserted the "Magazine Catch Stop" backwards, and now I can't remove the magazine catch at all. Anybody have any ideas on this, or have any experience with SIG's customer service? Their website was completely unhelpful.

Yep. I didn't know which way it was supposed to go (the video I was watching wasn't clear on that), and mistakenly thought "it'll only go in the correct way". Now the mag release is stuck, as there is no way for me to depress the detent/stop.
