Stick an allen wrench into the back of the cocking rod which I hope is the hex one and loosen it. If the hex nut comes off. :S Cock the gun back, use a vice grip, place a piece of cloth between the teeth and the cocking rod, slowly unscrew the cocking rod. Don't do it on the threads. Gl!

Posted by CQ in the 'tips' section stickied above:

Go out in your garage (or to the local hardware stores) and get yourself TWO 10-32 threaded nuts. Remove the knob on the cocking rod. Thread one of the nuts onto the back of the cocking rod as far as it will go. Take the other one and thread it onto the rod until it makes contact with the first one. You can now grip the first nut (the one that's closer to the gun) and grab it with pliers, vice grips, etc. to unscrew the cocking rod. Works like magic, and no scratches.
