    Today I installed a new Saber Tactical Ambidextrous Cocker on my Impact. It is superior to the original in many ways…it looks great and it does not allow the cocking handle to pop open every time I fire a shot like the original one did. The best installation video is the one from Airbuks – 

    – it explains how to install the new cocking block in great detail so that almost anyone can follow it. And it goes one giant step farther than the other videos by explaining how to make sure your pellet probe is properly adjusted in relation to your transfer port. That way you're not partially blocking your transfer port and inadvertently causing a big loss in velocity. 

    I give this product my highest recommendation…if you own an Impact you gotta get one of these! 😃

    Got one and it solves a lot of problems. Add Ernest's short throw handle an it's impressive.   Mike

    Looks really nice. Can you put a handle on both sides at the same time?

    Today I installed a new Saber Tactical Ambidextrous Cocker on my Impact. …….if you own an Impact you gotta get one of these! 😃

     

     

    You said "new", is that a revision (updated) part of last year model? or just a "new" to you?

    I got one back somewhere in November and I have (had) a problem, when I let the handle bar back=forward it clicks the metal on metal. Easy to fix, I stick a small silicon strip inside the handle not to wear out the edges, but still a shorter lever bar ( short throw handle )  would eliminate a contact.

    I can see on your picture your is also "pretty close".

    Mike-K: I don't know if the one Ernest makes would work on this or not you would have to ask him about that…but I will tell you that I tried one of his "short throw" cocking handles when they first came out and it was not good for me. With the amount of tension I have on my hammer spring it made it just too hard to cock my rifle, there just was not enough leverage with his shorter version. I do wish he would make some normal sized ones out of titanium though…if he did I would be the first in line for one.

    scoutscope: Ha Ha that's really funny! I can just imagine an Impact with a cocking handle on both sides! 😆 But you could definitely do it if you wanted to! 

    bigHun: Well I said new because this thing is new to me, and also because it is one of the "new" ones from Saber Tactical. The original ones had pins with black tops, whereas mine is one of the "new" ones with shiny stainless steel pins…so I believe I have the latest greatest version so far. It goes with my rifle really well because I have all stainless steel screws in her. And Helga loves the bling factor of this new one a lot! 😁

    And yes it does just barely touch…and makes an annoying click when I close it after cocking. So I am going to put a small piece of thin adhesive backed felt on it to keep it quiet. But I will draw your attention to the fact that as you separate it from touching you are also moving your pellet probe slightly rearward, so you're changing your probe's depth into your transfer port. Remember, changing any one little thing may change something else you didn't think about.

    All the best, Chuck

    Yes, we have the same kit.

    I think the handle lever shall be offset outward maybe 2-3 mm but keeping the two dowel holes distance will not alter the probe depth. Honestly we just spent the money on something "half done", I would pay more for a direct replacement plug&play if that was an issue ti make the kit affordable…

    If we don't intend to shift the cocking lever from right to left, what  is the advantage of this $125 kit?

    Its up to you to decide if there's any "advantage" to installing one of these on your Impact, and whether or not you feel like its worth the price. I love my new Saber Tactical Ambidextrous Cocker and believe you will too. Try it you'll like it! 😃

    Well WHY I like it is precisely because it is Smoother, and Easier, and Faster! And yes of course I bought it…no offense Mike, but you didn't Ass ume  that Santa brought it correct?  😲  And when you say "We're all interested" Mike… are you speaking for all 33,000 forum members here, or just the members of your private shooting club? Thanks! 😆

    Thanks Chuck. Appreciate the honest answer. I think I’m saying on general WE as in those that want or have an Impact. But then again, it could be all 33,000…  ;)

    Brown Santa might have brought it?
