    Hi there. What is the purpose of this second hole on the arm of my 97? I can see it would alter the effort and stroke if connected there but surely it wouldnt cock and lock then? What is it for lads?

    Makes them 97s just that bit lighter so we can all shoot them.

    It’s to make it easier to cock for limp wristed PCP shooters when they finally see sense and actually buy a proper airgun... :D:up:

    :popcorn:...

    I reckon it would make the distance to cock shorter and a bit more effort, as long as the cocking lever went back into the catch ok could be an improvement.

    Due to its location it would actually make the latter part of the cocking stroke easier albeit moderately, only thing is you’d need a different cocking linkage as if you aligned the hole in the cocking linkage with the rear of the two holes it would actually stop the comp tube from closing up properly “unless” there’s been some other modifications to the end of the cocking linkage and cocking foot/shoe area...

    Locating the linkage in the rear of the two holes would have the effect of actually extending the length of the cocking lever...
