Just picked up an LCRx and took it apart for first cleaning... now I cannot get it functioning

I had no issues with disassembly/reassembly of my LCR 38 but for some reason I'm missing something with the X version
I can get it together but it locks up immediatly with either a trigger or hammer pull
Everything seems to be in the correct position and free but obviously not
I assumed it would be same/similar to the LCR but clearly not

I found an older post here from about five years ago that says the upper slides straight back onto the grip frame during reassembly but I cannot get it together that way. I have to tip it in the same way it tips out, if I don't the cylinder latch gets caught on the upper. I have a suspicion that I do not have the hammer set in the correct position when mating the two halves, but I cannot find a video, photos, or description that describes this portion.

Does anyone know of a video or good text/photo description?

Thanks
