Don't worry, everybody does it at least once. Have friend hold one side of the bolt while you put all your strength into pulling back the cocking pin/slider/screw head etc (whichever it may be on a 70) to pull it back and latch it back into the correct position for strip down.
I took a screvdriver with a squared shaft and hung it on the edge of the pin, held on to the business end and the handle while the shaft pulled back the pin...I needed my wife's help with it too....it's a tight fit.

BsChoy,

It's a real PITA getting the striker pulled back enough to get the bolt back together, but once you do, I guarantee you will always make sure that the safety is on when you decide to dissemble the bolt, LOL.
