The large cocking knob came in today. I ordered it from here:

http://www.fseusa.com/product_info.php?cPath=104&products_id=345

I installed the knob a little while ago on the left side of the PS90. Before it arrived, I had my doubts about how the thing would stay on the gun, but it remains on the PS90 VERY well. I was impressed. I don't think it will come off accidentally at all.

The knob also looks nice on the gun, and it matches the styling of the original, stock knob.

I placed the knob on the left side. But, after hanging the gun on the sling and walking with it, I found that I didn't like how the larger knob poked me in the leg every time my right leg took a step forward. On the plus side, I do like how the knob makes it VERY easy to cock the gun.

After trying the gun on the sling for about 10 minutes... I decided to remove the extended cocking knob and put it on the right side. The knob was on there pretty good too - I bumped my fingers getting it off the gun.

I now have the extended cocking knob on the right side. I didn't really need it there, but I paid $35 for the thing, and may as well use it. And, it does make cocking the gun very easily.

Is it worth $35? I don't think so. I will admit that after I installed it on the left side initially, it looked so nice that I was tempted to immediately order one for the other side. But, as I mentioned above - As I carried the gun on the sling, it began to bother me.

I have it, so I will use it. But, this is the first PS90 item I am reviewing where I give it a pass... Not because the item is bad. Its high quality. I just think it is unnecessary.

Now that I have a two point sling - and the gun isn't bouncing against my leg like the single point did - I really am starting to like this extended cocking knob. I still have mine on the outside of the gun - but I am tempted to get a 2nd and have it on both sides.

I have it on both my PS90's, left-side only 'cause that's the only side I use for charging and the right side is partially blocked by the taclight's tapeswitch cable.

Click on the link at the top to the site that sells them - There are pics of the knob with and without the extended knob.

I have it on the right side. I tried it on the inside, and it pokes me when it hangs from the sling.

Update - Its been about a year since I wote this review and first got the product.

I REALLY love this extended cocking Knob. Once again - it's on the outside side of the PS90 - as it is not comfortable on the inside of the weapon while walking with a PS90 carried on a sling.

But, I'm very glad I bought this item. I just wish it didn't cost so much.
