    Default HK Sqeeze Cockers...

    Did HK ever make a squeeze cocker other then the P7/PSP and their many variations?

    I was just at a local gun range and overheard two people talking about a HK squeeze cocker that was larger then the P7 and the cocking "lever/mechanism" was on the back of the grip.

    My google search did not lead to anything.

    Any ideas, or were these two confused?!?

    I could be wrong, and there might be some gun out there with a rear "squeeze cocker"... but I doubt it.
    The first thing that comes to mind is that every time the gun would go from un-cocked to cocked (assuming a similar design and action of a P7 series), your grip on the gun would change... substantially.
    For that reason alone, I can't imagine anyone dumb enough to build a gun like that... especially HK.

    Of couse, guns like the 1911 and the like have "grip safeties"... which is an entirely different thing, and they depress automatically when you get a proper grip on the gun.

    HK never produced another squeeze-cocker other then the P7 series. There were other demos that HK made using the HK4 as a prototype for the system, but the P7 series is it.

    I recall reading about one with a rear squeeze-cocker but like Cueist said, I think it was just prototype.

    I should have given more details, the prototype that I mentioned had the squeeze-cocker on the rear of the HK4. Pictures of it below, and a front squeeze-cocker version as well.

    Default Caraville Arms Double Ace Squeeze cocking conversion

    From: 1911.org

    "Here is another interesting conversion, done to the 1911. This one was done by Caraville Arms circa 1970-1980 and it was called the Double Ace. It transformed the old workhorse to a squeeze-cocker. To do the conversion, you replaced the mainspring housing and grip safety with a device assembled in a stainless steel housing, which performed the feat of squeeze-cocking the hammer."
