Brentb636 you deserve a big AtaBoy for talking about the FEG guns. Reason: I never heard of a FEG gun so I checked it out and found out a lot of info on them. However the info of interest in the following QUOTE " The hammer spring is a pretty hefty number, too, so when the hammer is down the combination of the two springs require the shooter to put some effort into retracting the slide to inspect the chamberon a FEG 63- 380. The slide serrations aren’t just cosmetic, they are a help in this operation." UNQUOTE. I tried it out on my Bersa Thunder 380 and it does making racking the BT 380 easier. With an EMPTY gun, safety off, mag out ( to be safe while trying this) I pulled the hammer back and racked it. It did make a difference racking it which is something some people had problems with. I will be passing info along and hopefully will make a lot of Bersa owners happy.If you can't find the Bersa ( even if you CAN ) have you looked at the FEG AP7's available from J&G Sales ( $199) . I'm impressed by them, and they fit my Bersa IWB holster, too.
Yep, J&G Sales has the .32 cal for $199 . That's the AP7 in my signature, comes with two magazines and mine is quite nice. I've put Walnut grips on it and changed the hammer spring to a new 11# spring . My only wish would be for a dove-tailed front sight so I could put a FO rod up there to help my old eyes. Dream on !!Have you had any luck locating a .32?

As a woman and on behalf of women every where who would not even consider getting pistol due to difficulty in racking a slide, I thank you!
It's also the reason I only have single/double action pistols. I cock the hammer for first shot for better accuracy, obviously, with finger off trigger.
Also best way to rack slide is, hold gun with dominant hand, rack with off hand in a punching motion. Learned that at Ladies Shooting Leauge range session
