    Actually once you get the lever part past the edge of the slide you really don't have to hold it back anymore. It's clearing the lever that requires the pull.

    Once you figure out how to hold it with one hand, it's not that hard. I hold with one hand and give a little tap with a soft face hammer or a screw driver or something and I'm home free.

    Have you tried wrapping your thumb around the top of the back of the grip and your fingers over the top of the slide? This will allow you to apply even pressure on the slide while it's positioned where it needs to be. Pardon the weapon in the picture, it's the first one that came up in my search

    I understand this will put your hand over the nub that needs to be tapped, but once you're able to start it out with a thumbnail on the left side and don't need access to the right side this grip will help you greatly

    Thanks, I will definitely try that. I was trying to push back from the muzzle and need 3 hands. Other than the wife's LCPII which is easy, I'm used to lever type breakdown handguns.

    I do just like the picture but use my left hand and from the muzzle end. You can put your thumb in the trigger guard but I don't have to myself. This lets you see the take down lever notch, you don't need to align the lines, get it to where it needs to be, twist it around and give the pin a little tap and it's Miller Time.
