Let’s take a minute and imagine a surely infuriating scenario. Trust me, it will be okay. Picture if you will, a Tuesday morning. One in which you are free from obligations because you have the day off. What else would you do besides take a trip down to the shooting range? Your go-to rifle? None other than the Heckler & Koch G3. What follows is – in my mind – a hilarious image but is certainly no laughing matter. After loading a magazine, you reach up to pull the cocking lever and ready your G3 for firing. What actually happens is the lever falls back haphazardly and disconnects from the rifle.
Think for a second. What would cause this to happen? That’s right – you’re missing the cocking lever axle and elbow spring. Never fear, Keepshooting.com is now ready to offer you original HK replacement G3 cocking lever elbow springs. The cocking lever elbow spring is a small but essential part that is located in both the cocking lever and the cocking lever support. Held in place by the cocking lever axle, the elbow spring provides resistance and keeps the cocking lever folded in and out of the way. Without it, the lever would swing easily back and forth.
Like all springs, the G3 cocking lever elbow spring is subject to repeated compression and decompression and will wear out with heavy use. Replacement elbow springs are now available for the affordable price of $3.95.
G3 Cocking Lever Elbow Spring
The G3 cocking lever elbow spring is one of many replacement parts we offer for the G3 rifle. The cocking lever elbow spring can be found inside the cocking lever housing, between the cocking lever and the cocking lever support. It serves to keep the cocking lever folded in and out of the way.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, including springs. If a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.
It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com has a wealth of authentic, original factory parts from HK for the G3/HK91/PTR91. Not only are they readily available, but also they are cheap. Now is the time to take advantage.
