It most likely had a leather seal which is probably crumbled and stuck at the end of the compression chamber along with the screw that held it to the piston. Make sure the end of the compression tube is clear before you reassemble the gun. You may need to dress the front edge of the piston with a file to remove burrs, as the piston looks a bit dented.
