Slide Rack Assist Device called … Cock Bloc

This device is not only designed to assist the slide racking but also works as a display stand for pistols. And yes, the manufacturer calls it Cock Bloc. Its main purpose is to aid people with limited hand dexterity to manipulate the slide and/or to be able to do it single-handedly. As you can see in the video below, it requires to stick the gun into the stand and apply downward pressure to rack the slide.

Actually, the slide stays in place and you work the frame, but the results is the same.

This device is made of injection molded plastic. It comes in two sizes called Alpha and Bravo. The Alpha version fits pistols with larger diameter recoil spring guide rods and the Bravo is for handguns with smaller diameter ones. There is no list of handgun model compatibility with the either version of the Cock Bloc. So in order to find out which one will fit your gun, you need to contact the company.

The Cock Bloc is made in the USA and both Alpha and Bravo models cost $29.95.

I think this device can be useful as a range accessory or for mounting it near or on the bed stand, or maybe for display purposes. However, in case if you need to move around with the gun, then this becomes pretty much useless. Just imagine how awkward it would be to try to mount this and use it to rack the slide in the middle of a defensive scenario. In that case, you’d better know how to use surrounding objects to rack the slide on.

    At least it’s not shaped like a…you know.

    If you can not charge your handgun, maybe you should not had it. ( Use revolver 😀 )

    • Anonymoose

      A .410 pump shotgun is probably more appropriate for those people.

      • Wow!

        Personally I think an AR in 556 is the best option for someone who won’t or can’t train much (no short stroking a pump, little recoil, good power, low over-penetration, and now pretty cheap) but basically anything is better than a handgun for a novice which is probably the most difficult firearm to be proficient in.

        • Anonymoose

          Maybe an AR pistol with an 11.5″ barrel, KX3, and foregrip (thus rendering it not really a “pistol,” but the 11.5″ barrel would make it too long to be an AOW) and a laser sight and flashlight. I’ve been toying around with such a conceptual weapon for a little while now but I haven’t bothered to really build it. I’m happy using normal handguns for defense around my apartment for the time being.

      The Walther PPQ is ideal for women and people who have difficulty racking a slide, it’s very easy to do on that gun as it takes almost no effort to do so.

        and the CCP

      Or maybe HK should just revive the HK P7 “Sqeeze Cocker”.

  • Anonymoose

    They’ve got those switched- the 1911 should be the Alpha and the Glock should be the Beta. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1802a986f42fef98398eb4c8fdc75a54ed8860da9b8533380c8d729825303612.jpg

    Hmm how fast do the fragments of plastic and table come off it if you let one go as you’re bringing the pistol back up? Could it be made to trap the bullet in a bucket of sand under a thin plastic lid or something?
