The new ‘Cocking Aide’ from Airmasters Accessories is a device to effectively increase the diameter of the cocking lever and give a better grip on either a Weihrauch HW77 or Air Arms TX200, making the cocking stroke both easier and safer to complete.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
These Aides are a simple push fit design - just slide it down over the rifle’s under lever, and secure in the desired position by tightening the two small grub screws, recessed into the underside. My test samples came as slightly wider options, with the top edge flattened off where it sits alongside the barrel. Other variations can be supplied, with a slightly narrower yet fully circular profile.
The Cocking Aide can be supplied with its natural aluminium ‘silver’ finish, or black anodised and further choice exists as to the configuration: a plain body featuring deep scallops on each side, or a knurled surface. Plenty of choice then and personal choice plays a big part when buying customising items. Seeing silver contrasting with the blued barrel looks pretty impressive yet may be too garish for some.
VARIATIONS ON A THEME
Likewise some will appreciate the rugged feel of the fully knurled panel in the hand, whereas others might prefer the smoother scalloped version more. Rest assured though - all variations on the theme are equally effective in the field; providing plenty of grip where it matters most.
So there we have it - revamp your favourite sporter with style, and opt for one of these classy add-ons. The quality of Airmasters’ work goes without saying, and the new Cocking Aide is just one of their growing range of finely engineered accessories. Note: the Cocking Aide may also fit some other makes and models of under-lever cocking rifles – check with Airmasters.
FOR - A truly useful accessory for any spring gun
AGAINST - Not a lot
VERDICT - A practical yet cosmetic item and well worth a look
