Mine is bent, so I ordered a new one and it arrived today.  It looks like it should be simple, but looks can be decieving.  Any advice from someone who has changed one out would be appreciated!

The long silver/white bar? If that's the case, GET A PUNCH. If memory serves me right, I replace the charging handle with the Manticore Switchback one and it required me to remove the charging handle from the bar (bar and handle stuck in that polymer piece. I tried for like an hour or so using bajank items to punch out the roll pin that secures the handle to the bar. Hey I was new to roll pins back then. Went to home depot and bought a set for less than $10 and it's served me well.

The new bar has the handle already on it, so does the handle have to be removed to install it, or dies it slide right in?

You have to drive out the small roll pin that goes through the plastic cocking handle and rod. Use a quality punch because it can be tough to get out.

Gearhead makes a drastically improved cocking handle with a bulletproof steel rod. It makes the stock unit seem cheap and foolish.

Link to that Gearhead steel rod?  Nevermind, I found it.  Thanks!

Fixed it today and took it to the range for function check.  Worked like a charm, so it is back to fully operational!

Definitely recommend the GHW setup...

Cleans that side of the gun up very well. Fold up the handle, and the rifle lays flat... instead of up on a kick stand. Also makes putting in soft cases easier.

Was going to post pictures, but Photobucket stopped allowing me to. Got to switch to another service, so will try to put up pictures if I remember.
