I have been considering a pistol-grip head, such as the Manfrotto model 222. It appears, however, that this head is designed to work only with Manfrotto's proprietary quick release system. I current use RRS BH-55 ball heads with RRS standard or L-plates, and I'm not changing systems; the pistol grip is really for a specific application, not a complete change in platform.

Therefore, I am looking for a good pistol-grip type of mount that also supports the arca-swiss style of quick release plates.

Any suggestions?
