Here's what a factory one looks like, mounted on a British-issue PP .22. It simply replaces the hammer spring plug. No drilling or grip-chopping is required.

The small flanges at the front prevent the loop from folding forward and obstructing the magazine well.

That is what my lanyard looks like. Did the Brits install an aftermarket lanyard? Does anyone care enough to fake an L66A1 lanyard?
Many years ago I saw about 700 of these UK guns. Many of them had the style of lanyard loop shown above. Others had none. Some had been fitted, presumably in British arsenals, with a lanyard loop that resembled that of a Webley revolver (possibly salvaged from same). These were attached on the bottom of the frame --not the side-- but I don't recall any longer if they were attached directly to the frame itself or to the hammer spring plug, or as a substitute for the plug.

Perhaps someone here has an example and could tell us.
