The early slab-sided cocking handles are difficult to use. That's why they were replaced with the handles with the vertical grip. When the vertical grip is pulled back, it hingse outward to give a leverage advantage to pull the bolt/barrel back, to get the bolt unlocked from the barrel. The slab handles have no leverage system and are much more difficult to pull for that first inch.

Cool looking, but uncommon and few exist for the reason that they were so difficult to use.
