Some time ago someone here was either selling or promoting an attachment for a P17 to assist in the cocking process. I haven't been able to find that info. Could someone here point me to the source?
I'm finding that the sharp edges are a little tough on the hands...let alone the wear and tear on the rear sight.

I would try and PM him here. I thought I had his email address. But it was just thru Etsy.

Because he was still in business in March when I ordered.

I've done that. However, he hasn't been here since July, so I'm not optimistic about getting a reply.

Shame, he made such a great product and had some neat ideas.

Thanks for the effort, leadslinger. I guess the only solution is to see if someone in the Freelance services section is able to come up with a viable alternative :) .
