Making the VG1-5 cocking handle

In the following pictures of original VG1-5 one of the items that you will notice is that all the cocking handles look different and that they have been through some rough times.

We are hoping to prevent the serious bending issue that we have seen in the original rifles. We are trying to keep it as the same basic shape of the original and it will be riveted as well.
