Hi all, any chance of getting it back into shape?(by knocking)
Will it break?

Heat your shifter with a torch- not too much though, then using vise-grips, bend it back to its correct position- VERY SLOWLY!!!!!
You may have to repeat heating and bending MANY times. Good Luck!

Moose steel shifter costs only about 30 bucks. Stock is something like 70 bucks.

Be careful with steel shifters. Yes, they are strong, but you may break the shift arm into the case, rather than the shifter itself. Just something to consider.
