    Normal a good idea to change both at the same time. Have you tried moving the firing body forward?

    Yep the same lever but as Gary has said it's better to replace both at the same time.

    The cocking leaver has probably lost its profile. You can easily re shape it so it hooks around the bearings.
    Think there's a thread on here somewhere showing the area it needs to be done.

    Is the lever going into place and still feels slightly slack, or is it now too tight to lock closed?

    Sounds like a quick adjustment of the barrel to sort bolt locking position might sort it??

    I had to release the barrel close the cocking arm and hold in place whilst pushing the barrel in fairly firmly before tightening it back up.

    Closes with a nice click now as opposes to constantly popping open.

    I just replaced the old type cocking lever and bearing (well a pin really) Tried the old lever with the new stainless bearing system and it would not click shut no matter how it was adjusted, When the old cocking lever was placed on top of the new lever there was a difference, wear and tear probably, when the new lever was fitted everything runs smooth and clicks into place, but was told not to have it to tight when closing as the bearing being stainless can crush and collapse.

    I watched Harry P while he changed mine and he did say there was a right and wrong way of fitting it, slight variation from one end to the other.

    told

    I am told that it is advisable to change the cocking handle when you change the bearing . as the handle tends to wear over a amount of time . ??? HOLLY:)

    Hello Holly:

    While I am not so sure about the lever really wearing out to the point where it needs to be replaced, just consider that a new cocking lever costs 9 EUR and this is good insurance just for the sake of not having to disassemble the gun one more time :)

    For removing the bearing you will need a 2 mm key and most likely will have to warm up the area around it because Steyr uses hi strength glue.

    Use this kind of glue when installing the new bearing.

    Regards,

    azuaro

    "made sure i had the right allen key and it rounded off"

    Same happened to me initially, but used a torx drive head and it came free. Inspected the screw and it was not Allen drive but Torx drive, not overly obvious but it was definitely Torx.

    A fair amount of the internal small screws in the Steyr are torx drive. Torx heads drivers will work with Allen heads, but not the reverse. Mine being an early LG110 FT seems to have a fair mixture of all types so I'm going through systematically replacing them all with stainless Torx.
