A Cocking Handle for My RWS (Diana) Model 45, Part 2

Just the shim to make.

Drilling some solid to make tubing...

Turning to fit the brake.

Reaming to the size of the barrel.

Left a shoulder to bear against the end of the brake, the last one had a disturbing tendency to swallow the shim and get all out of place. See, I'm learning! Next one will actually integrate the transition between the two...


The brake was cold blued with Dicropan T-4, the shim with Oxpho blue.

The shim slips over the front sight grooves.

All together.
