I had this happen once with a Boss. 
Put the rifle’s bottle back on and make sure it’s unloaded but ready to shoot. Point in a safe direction. Cock it. Hook up your supply bottle and get the air flowing, don’t be shy. Get the air flowing through it good. Remain ready to stop the flow. Pull the trigger. If the valve reseats, stop the flow of also that you don’t refill your rifle too fast. 
That should basically bounce the valve back and forth and the flowing air should help it to reseat. I actually did this with the rifle’s CF bottle by screwing it on until the air was running through it. I don’t recall how to fix this if your working with a hand pump.
This is the only time I’d suggest dry firing a Royale series rifle! Over time, dry firing can cause internal damage. But, it would take hundreds of shots to do so, not just one or two.
