    Hi all,
    just picked up an early dommie with the pin cocking lever. Tried to put a 30mm scope on low sportsmatch mounts. Cant cock the rifle as the lever is hitting the mount.
    Any body come across this before and how did you fix it?
    Thanks
    John

    Move the mount back far enough so you can cock it and fit a pellet in John. That's all I've done, the difficult part is getting the lever to miss the scope body/saddle!;):)

    Had a go at that Ryan, it brings the scope to far back.
    Was wondering if the lever could be modded.

    What scope are you using?

    When I set mine up, I undid all the bolts on the rear scope mount and moved the lever until I could just cock it, then did everything up.

    Not much to do to the lever, I chamfered mine slightly as it didn't clear the scope body without a couple of mm filed off!:D

    MK 4 Leup, Looks like you'd have to file the lever and get the mounts machined!

    Is there a big difference between the pin and paddle levers.

    OR you could grind the bottom of the scope! :D:D Seriously though AFAIK some low mounts are lower/higher than others so try various dirrerent mounts!
    If that don't work buy a Steyr!:D:):p

    My Leup Mk4 fits on the dommie by a nats chuff, unfortunately the EB Sniper doesnt(brand new mounted it, pulled the cocking pin, big score in the bottom, cue the swearing).

    Scooby is in the process of sorting it though by a bit of chamfering.

    It was a pin Gerard, but the pin got damaged by a ham fisted idiot so UK Neil made up the little ally nubbin which is bolted to the lever!:D

    I've already done it Steve & the EB will easily clear it now but I'm still not sure why you'd change a Mk4 for an EB :D

    I wont be pete, but im a ham fisted bugger at the best of times.

    One thing that has always annoyed me, qualified as an electronic engineer, came out the trade in early nineties, can't even bang in a nail now without breaking something!

    Hence the reason you are sorting mine out as i couldn't unless it required smacking with a large hammer!

    Apparently thats not a mod that people recommend after spending £1650 on a new shiny thing:D

    I had to use reach forward mounts on mine, might be worth a try.

    Thanks for the replys.
    Played about with reach forward's, job done. No need to alter the lever at all.
    Thanks again.
