I just picked up a 770 which is in pretty nice shape. The gun came with both 3 and 10 shot clips, the proper quick disconnect scope base and rings and a Zeis diavari-c 3-9x36 for 1950 Canadian (about 1400 US). The wood is nice and so is the bluing.
Unfortunately the cocking lever has been broken off. The guy who owned it made a bit of a steel rod replacement which seems to work fine (according to the guy selling who I have dealt with numerous times before).
I was sure that I would be able to find a cocking lever somewhere, but I am running into dead ends all over.
So... questions I have are:
Anyone know of any part sources?
It looks like the lever from an SL 6 or 7 should work???
Has anyone machined one before? I saw one gentleman posted that he had a friend making one and I posted asking if he had any success?
Greatly appreciate the help folks.
It’s a beautiful gun, and even without the handle, I know it will be a nice addition to my collection.
If the seller doesn't want to ship out of the EU let me know and I will help.
That is a good deal, since cocking levers are very difficult to find in NA. I'd jump on it quick! The seller says they will ship international. Last year, I was lucky to find a guy selling SL7 parts on Ebay, I purchased an extra cocking lever for my HKs.
