Default Keyless chuck for Sioux air drill?

Im trying to source a compact keyless chuck for a Sioux air drill.
3/8" max bit. Most seem chunky for the sleek Sioux drill.
Looking for compact. Suggestions appreciated.

I have this style on my air drills one being a Sioux and it works fine. It took me a little while to get used to it on the Sioux but wouldn't change it back to a keyed chuck.

I have a setup like you are looking for that I purchased from Cleaveland Tools. I donít think they sell it any longer. If you do a search for Boeing Quick Change Drill you will find several places including ACS that sell the chuck. Cleaveland sold adapters for the common aircraft drill bits. They also sold an adapter which you could install a standard chuck that I use for other drill sizes. Itís a great system. The Yardstore also sells some of these pieces. In addition there are drill bits with the quick change available. It may take a little work to put this system together now but itís a great system.
