Quick Overview

Since we began adding our original Heckler & Koch G3 parts to the store, I’ve spoken briefly about the six simple machines on several instances. Today, I would like to revisit these six simple items, which you probably wouldn’t recognize as machines that have made all of our lives easier at some point.

In general, a simple machine is a mechanical device that is used to change the direction or magnitude of a force and provide a mechanical advantage. Typically, the term refers to any one of six simple machines as defined by scientists during the Renaissance. They are the lever, wheel and axle, pulley, inclined plane, wedge and screw. Sure, all of them are great, but today we’re going to focus on the lever.

A lever is generally any rigid bar that works in conjunction with a fulcrum or pivot point and is used to increase the force being applied to an object. If you take a minute and think about it, there are probably hundreds of levers you’ve used in your everyday life without realizing it. Some common levers include: the crowbar, scissors, teeter-totter, rake, fork, baseball bat, can opener and even the toilet flushing handle.

Today’s lever of interest is the G3 cocking lever. The G3 cocking lever can be found folded into the left side of the cocking lever tube, connected to the cocking lever support via the cocking lever elbow spring and the cocking lever axle pin. It is an integral part of the rifle, as without it, you would be hard-pressed to chamber an initial cartridge or perform any other tasks that require a retracted bolt. Being that it is a lever, the G3 cocking lever allows you to apply the force needed to pull the cocking lever support back, which retracts the bolt and allows for any of the following:

- Cocking the firearm

- Hand-loading/ejecting a cartridge

- Clearing a jam

- Ensuring a cleared chamber

Ensure you’re not unable to work the bolt on your G3 by picking up one of our G3 cocking levers today for only $5.95.

The G3 cocking lever is one of the most important components of the G3 rifle. Found just to the left of the cocking lever tube, the cocking lever allows you to retract the bolt in order to chamber a round and complete several other tasks. It is an original factory part made in Germany by HK.

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 levers. If a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, 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.

  1. Green Handle! review by Uncle Mike on 4/6/2017

    Mine is in Great Shape! Luck of the draw works out sometimes. No rust or damage on this part.Keepshooting got a good batch of parts on this inventory. Are in good over-all condition. Definitely good for a spare. Price was outstanding and shipping was fast. Great product!

  2. Must have review by Dale on 1/15/2017

    Mine looked just like the picture, appears to be new with only minor wear and marks from storage with other parts. I don't need it now but I know I'll be happy if I'm out at the range and the one on my rifle breaks. For $6.00, just keep in the range bag and be prepared.

  3. Must have for your set of spare parts review by Rich on 8/26/2016

    I received one like pictured with the plastic handle. It had quite a bit of finish wear but no big deal to me as I threw it in the park tank with the 2 grip housings I ordered here and it looks as good as new. For $5.95 you can't afford not to get one of these as a spare just in case.

  4. Good as a spare review by HK Al on 8/22/2016

    The cocking handle I received was the same style as pictured on the website. However, my was extremely worn. It will serve it's purpose as a spare part.

  5. Decent price review by Mark on 12/29/2015

    I ordered the cocking handle expecting the 70's type with the black plastic handle that is pictured what I received is the early all steel handle. Dunno if its a fluke, wrong picture or just they grab one out of the box. Not upset as I prefer the older style one. Condition is good just finish wear.
