I have a feeling your lever issue is due to poor aluminum casting. I have never had a Daisy metal lever that was as worn as you describe. From your story, it sounds like the lever wore out within a day or two. That is real bad. I'd put in n old metal lever.
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Daisy did send me a prepaid Fed Ex shipping label to return the second failed RR cocking lever. But just to see I put it in another RR that had a metal lever and it is working with no problems. In fact the lever I removed from that gun looks more worn than the suspect one. Now, I wonder if the fault lies not with the lever but with the trigger assembly in the Christmas Dream RR. Going to keep shooting with the suspect lever for a while. My girlfriend is happy with the plastic lever in her gun and will not let me take it apart to compare triggers with another older RR.

There is definitely something to be said for a happy girl friend. Just the two cents from a guy who has had plenty of experience with an unhappy partner. Ouch

Something just occurred to me. You can check something without taking the gun apart. Use a disassembled RR to compare if the trigger bolts and lever bolts line up. If the holes are off then a little wear will change the way the cocking distance engages. Otherwise.....sneak the gun away when she isn't looking and do a little "internal investigating".

Airitis , your first suggestion is a good one and I'll do that. The second one? What are you, crazy? Sneak a woman's gun when she is not looking!
