    Hello,

    I hope this is the right place to post this ...

    I am looking for a carry handle or my CF-M34, as per picture (if it has worked) - does anyone know where to find one, or have one for sale perhaps?

    There were two types of handle, cloth and kick stand - really want one of these kick stand ones ...

    I think the handles were default hardware for the CF-17 model, but also fit the CF-M34

    I have never seen a handle like that before.

    I have seen pictures of them but never ran across one. I have a 17 and it came with the cloth handle.

    Actually I don't, only seen pictures never owned a kickstand handle. But I do have extensions for the hand straps on CF-34, 18, and 19 that makes it long enough for a shoulder strap. Believe @pjcmerritt is right, the kickstand only came on CF-17. Interesting that the rear of the dock for CF-M34 looks to be shaped so it can accommodate a kickstand handle.

    BTW today is the first day of my retirement. 40 years as a DoD contractor, interesting career but really looking forward to spend a lot more time doing a lot less ;-)

    BIG Congrats your way Springfield, enjoy it well.

    Another thing on the 17 the dock looks the same and lots of body parts swap, but it wont boot if you put the 17 into a M34 dock and vice versa.

    I don't think I have ever seen one of those handles come up on ebay.
