“JDShapp”Great looking stock Zebra. Also if you find a way to move the cocking lever forward I’m thinking you’ll become just about every mutant owners hero.


I can see how to do it fairly easily. The challenge is making it work without it looking home-made….

The basic mechanic is similar to the trigger linkage rod. Inside the Tavor X95 stock is a spring-loaded rod with a cocking handle on one end and the other is attached to the bolt.

Side-lever guns have the cocking handle attached to cam-pins which, when pulled back, engage the hammer sear. The side lever can be extended. I did a simple version of this for my Cricket where a carbon fiber rod was attached to the side-lever using some mini clamps. It kinda worked but looked messy. To make it look neat, I need to remove the side lever and attach the rods directly to the cam-pins. Then the rod needs to be hidden inside the stock. 

Ideally, I want to use a Winchester under-lever to operate the cocking rod extension (that sounds wrong…) but I’ll probably use as straight pull-back bolt-action motion initially.
