I have an Imble receiver and i am trying to install the cocking handle; its from a R1 but it will not slide rearward; it is binding and is extremely tight. do i need to order a new one or?

lay it on a flat surface with 400 grit sandpaper and make the bottom thiner, check often.

Lay it on a flat piece of glass and be sure that it is not bent. Slide it in backwards and you can probably tell where it is binding. Sometimes the rails get bent especially if your FFL was monkey-fingering your receiver and showing it to everyone in the shop and someone dropped it. AMHIK.

Good luck.
