The SS2 is very easy to cock, I took a fish weighing scale, and it took only 9 lbs. to cock the gun, but not so when the gun is new. When new it is hard to cock, until you have at lease, shot 3,000 pellets through it. The gun is very accrete, but the metal parts are not as hard as the FWB-65 which is a copy of that gun. The parts will wear out and make it dangers, when cocking it. Still it is worth the money,and the parts are cheap. The cocking bear trap should be oiled often, and if a little dirt and dust gets in the bear trap mechanism, the bear trap may not engage, and the cocking lever can smash your hand when loading a pellet. Their is a way to get round this problem, do not pull the cocking lever all the way up to the cock position, pull the cocking lever to about half of the way and then put the pellet into the breech, when the pellet is in, and then  remove your hand, and then finish cocking to the full cock position. If you load the gun the way that I stated, it is impossible for the cocking lever to smash your hand. because you will feel the bear trap taking hold and know that it is working. If you cock the lever all the way to the full cock position, and if the piston hold back sear fails, which can (with wear), the cocking lever will bypass the safety bear trap and smash or break your hand while loading the pellet. It did happen to one of our ASR&PA (air gun division) shooters, .Rada Plesinger he tells this story even to day, which happen a quite awhile ago.   Thank You: Robert Schattler schatler@citlink.net Web Sight: http://www.citlink.net/~schatler/
